2023 promises to be a big year for Dallas indie-rock band The Intemperate Sons. Formed in 2019, the family band who feature Keith Watson (drums), Jake Watson (guitars), and Max Watson (vocals, guitars, keys) along with bassist Mark Marks, set their stall out early with the release of the first single from their upcoming and highly-anticipated new album Game of Keep Away.

The track, entitled “Unrealized”, saw the band team up with Amir Derakh at the producing and mixing helm with Derakh working on both the track and the second album. Upon the release of the single, a track which saw the band blend a healthy dose of retro groove into their highly-rated cocktail of hard rock, folk and grunge, the Dallas crew have now dropped the video which they filmed with Ardent Owl Media and Ryan Whitehead.

You can check out the premiere of the video right here:

Speaking about the inspiration behind the song, the band told us:

“‘Unrealized’ is the story of being trapped within the walls of your mind and the self-destructive ways you end up keeping yourself there while everyone around you sees your potential.”

Compared to alt-rock stars like Alice in Chains, Stone Temple Pilots and REM, 2023 looks to be a key twelve months for the band and, as you will agree once you’ve been sucked in by their awesome retro vibe, it would be a crime to see their dreams going “Unrealized”.

01/28 – Rob’s Billiards Sports Bar – Euless, TX
02/11 – O’Riley’s – Dallas, TX

I have an unhealthy obsession with bad horror movies, the song Wanted Dead Or Alive and crap British game shows. I do this not because of the sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll lifestyle it affords me but more because it gives me an excuse to listen to bands that sound like hippos mating.
