Brisbane’s Stepson have released a new video clip / single ‘Come With Me‘ and announced a tour to launch it alongside mates Stateside and Aburden through July / August.

Come With Me‘ is available on iTunes [Here]. Watch the video below.

The song was brought to life by producer Callan Orr at Avalanche Studios and drums were recorded by Sam Bassal (Ocean Grove). The accompanying film clip was directed by Adrian Eyre and Splat Studios.

Vocalist Brock Conry wanted to share his process on writing the lyrics and the themes surrounding the song.

‘Come With Me’ is about the constant self-deprecation you face when you think you aren’t good enough for some one you truly care about. For me personally, I thought I was doing the right thing but the extent of what I created was ultimately the worst thing I could’ve done. I’ve always been one to ignore issues, particularly to do with my own feelings, but little did I know it is quite possibly the worst and most harsh things you can do to a person that cares about you. The permanent fear of not knowing whether or not you’re good enough for someone who has treated you with nothing but love and respect is completely horrifying and I do not wish it upon anyone. In turn, I loved and lost someone due to my constant push and pull and this song is about how I felt during that very trying time.


The tour begins July 28th and takes in Casino, Brisbane for 18+ and AA shows, Newcastle, Canberra, Sydney and Melbourne for 18+ and AA shows. Both supports, Stateside and Aburden have new releases out now as well – and have been making moves of their own lately. Tickets go on sale for the tour this Thursday June 29th at Oztix.

Stepson are a 5 piece melodic-hardcore band from Brisbane, QLD that pride themselves on having high energy, honest lyrics and raw, emotive music. The band first kicked things off with their debut EP ‘Broken Bottles / Drunken Hearts‘ in 2014 which immediately saw them make their way around the country. The following year, the band released their second EP titled ‘Echoes In An Empty Room‘.

In 2016, they released one single, ‘Never Mind Me‘ and a 3-track EP, ‘The Beautiful Lie‘.

Along the way, Stepson have been given the chance to share a stage with international acts such as Counterparts, Title Fight, Capsize and While She Sleeps as well as some of Australian acts like Ocean Grove, Hellions and Storm The Sky. The band also performed at 2016’s sold-out Invasion Fest.
