Set It Off —singer/lyricist Cody Carson, guitarist Zach DeWall, and drummer Maxx Danziger — have teamed up with vocaloid Hatsune Miku to put a new and forward-thinking spin on Set It Off’s already genre blending song “Why Do I.” The original appears on the trio’s latest album Elsewhere, out now via Fearless Records. Get it here.
This collaboration fuses Hatsune Miku’s unique pop style with Set It Off’s driving pop punk and the end result is a one-of-a-kind sound that all love fans clamoring for more.
“Set It Off have never been a band that’s fit into a box,” Danziger explains. “If there’s any artist that shares this attitude, it’s the greatest digital pop star of all time — Hatsune Miku. This collab is something we’ve been trying to do for a long time and we’re SO excited that it finally came together. We’re always trying to break the mold and push the envelope of what’s possible and expected in the music industry, and this is a huge step forward in that regard.”
Since forming in Florida in 2008, Set It Off have released four albums, amassed a loyal following, and relocated to L.A., while their Top 10 Spotify tracks alone have racked up 528 million plays. The band’s full-length debut album Cinematics (2012) embraced their moodier rock side, while later efforts took on an upbeat pop twist that culminated in a darker synergy of those styles on 2019’s Midnight. 2022’s Elsewhere is a transitional, moody, and forward-thinking release — one in which they have faced their demons and come out happier and more full of life than ever before.

Set It Off is composed of singer/lyricist Cody Carson, guitarist Zach DeWall, and drummer Maxx Danziger. Drawing inspiration from a diverse swath of influences like Anderson Paak. and Michael Jackson, the genre-bending trio has never been your standard Emo band, Pop group, or even Pop-Punk band. They are all of those things and more, having developed a signature style that shakes Alternative to its core. Since their 2008 inception in Florida, Set It Off has conquered one milestone after another; they have released four highly-acclaimed albums, received accolades from press like Billboard and Alternative Press, amassed a loyal following, and racked in 528 million plays for their Top 10 Spotify tracks alone. They have also transformed audiences into believers on tours with All Time Low, Simple Plan, Sleeping With Sirens, and more.
While the band’s debut album Cinematics embraced their moodier Rock side, later efforts have taken on an upbeat Pop twist that has culminated in a darker synergy of those styles in their last album Midnight. Their upcoming album Elsewhere is a transitional and forward-thinking release— one in which the individual members have surmounted their demons and resurrected as happier and more full of life than ever before.
