Today, alt-rocker Chad Tepper shares a deeply confessional track titled “my ex” featuring Simple Plan front man Pierre Bouvier. Tepper recently announced his signing to Epitaph with the epic music video “dont wanna die,” and is quickly picking up traction with his signature rock n’ roll swagger and magnetic charm. This new release marks yet another collaboration with an artist that he’s admired for years.
The guitar driven alt-rock anthem explores contradicting emotions of still being in love with an ex. Even when you know it’s killing you to hold onto those lingering feelings, you just can’t seem to let go of the past. Chad explains, “It’s like this head game you play with yourself and when the relationship finally ends, the only thing that can heal it is a full break because those unread text messages and looking at each other on social media just prolongs the pain. It’s like you’re addicted to it though because you want the pain to be gone but you can’t let go.”
