Their forthcoming album, Hammer of My Own, will be self-released and is scheduled for August 23, 2024.

Today, NYC-based indie rockers Closebye share the title track off their upcoming album, Hammer of My Own, along with a captivating lyric video. The track features notable contributions from Margaux Bouchegnies of Margaux, adding a unique layer to the band’s sound.

Hammer of My Own, set to release on August 23, 2024, embodies the symbolic strength and complexity of its namesake. The hammer, a tool rich in historical and cultural symbolism, represents the destruction of old ways and the building of new beginnings. For Closebye, it signifies the arduous journey of self-improvement and transformation.

According to singer-songwriter Jonah Paul Smith, the album’s lyrics delve into:

“…the the struggle to come to grips with self-reliance, with constant shifts of blame, projection, codependency, ending with a new sobering independence, and the realization that only you can be your own savior.”

‘Hammer of My Own’ is out now. Their forthcoming album, Hammer of My Own, will be self-released and is scheduled for August 23, 2024.
