SELFISH THINGS RELEASE NEW MUSIC VIDEO FOR TORN
FEATURING SPENCER CHAMBERLAIN (UNDEROATH)
Selfish Things have released brand new music video for Torn (Feat. Spencer Chamberlain of Underoath). Torn isthe latest single from the band’s debut album Logos, released via Pure Noise Records earlier this year.
Speaking about what it was like working with Underoath frontman, Alex Biro said, ‘Working with Spencer was a dream come true for all of us. Torn was one of our favourite songs on the album already, but having him lend his voice took it to an entirely different level.’
On his involvement, Chamberlain shares “I normally don’t feature on records but when I heard ‘Torn’ for the first time it just blew me away. I loved what these guys were up to and Alex just had something about his voice that I loved.”
Logos, was produced by WZRD BLD (Lil Peep, I Prevail, Ice Nine Kills, nothing, nowhere), the 11-track record spans genre influences while diving into topics of grief, love, anxiety and more on an honest deep dive into frontman Alex Biro’s psyche.

Selfish Things have been touring throughout the United States and Canada throughout the year in support of Don Broco, Set IT Off, William Ryan Key (Yellowcard), Cavetown and more.
Currently, they are on the road in support of label-mates Boston Manor on their first full-length headlining North American Tour alongside Microwave and Heart Attack Man.
The band is also giving back this holiday season with the release of their version of “Happy Xmas (War Is Over)”, originally recorded by John Lennon and Yoko Ono. This stripped back, emotional track became a family affair with guest vocals and very special cover art courtesy of Rowen Biro, daughter of vocalist Alex Biro.
“Vancouver has the worst homelessness problem in the entirety of North America, the majority of which is made up of indigenous youths aged 10-29. Indigenous persons in Canada are 6 times more likely to die by suicide compared to the general population and are 66% more likely to become addicted or dependent on drugs/alcohol,” shares vocalist Alex Biro on the inspiration behind the accompanying music video. “Given the original music video and the intention behind the song, we’d like to use the visuals of the video to fundraise for the Native Urban Youth Association – https://unya.bc.ca/about/.”
While taking their name from Jimmy Eat World’s “23”, with unmatched determination Selfish Things prove they are neither selfish nor self-serving. Having spent years cultivating and nurturing his raw, natural talent, dedication to musicianship and songwriting, Biro founded Selfish Things. All of this, in the hope of shedding light on one simple, yet oftentimes overlooked, concept — honesty.
Selfish Things is Alex Biro (Vocals/Guitar/Piano), Mike Ticar (Lead Guitar/Vocals) and Cam Snooks (Rhythm Guitar).
