Kingston, Ontario band Kasador recently unveiled their new album, Youth, including the tight track, “Quit Your Crying,” an unapologetic anthem delving into the very real frustrations that stem from watching a meaningful relationship crumble before your eyes and resorting to putting up barriers in response.

Speaking of the above-mentioned single, the band shares:

“We wrote the track ‘Quit Your Crying’ the night before going into the studio, showed it to our drummer 5 minutes before recording at Bathouse Studio, and 1.5 hours later, we had the instrumental recorded. Quickest a song has ever come together for us! The Glorious SonsBrett Emmons produced, Nyles Spencer (Half Moon Run, July Talk) engineered, Vic Florencia (Olivia Rodrigo, Jason Mraz, Five For Fighting) mixed, and Peter Letros (Beyonce, Duran Duran) mastered.”

Composed of Cameron Wyatt (vocals/guitar), Boris Baker (bass), and Stephen Adubofuor (drums), the trio has woven years of tumult through their mid-late twenties into something powerful and real: a tight-knit, sincere, and caring rock and roll band hitting full sprint, with their sophomore LP, Youth, about memory, relationships, and how the relentless passage of time shapes and constantly reshapes all of those things.

Recorded at Bathouse Studio with The Glorious SonsBrett Emmons producing and Nyles Spencer (Half Moon Run, July Talk) engineering, it’s a bright, punkish, emotional guitar-rock record that ultimately tracks the process of learning to be okay with not being okay. Vic Florencia (Olivia Rodrigo, Jason Mraz, Five For Fighting) mixed the record, and Peter Letros (Beyonce, Duran Duran) mastered. Hurled into uncertainty, Kasador embraced the fact that things won’t—can’t—last forever, working together to make sense of the gap between youthful dreams and very adult realities.

Continued on the single, the band adds:

“If little frustrations are allowed to build within a relationship, you can find yourself in a place where you don’t even recognize each other. When you become something negative in someone’s eyes it makes it that much harder to be vulnerable and open with them. “Quit Your Crying” speaks to those very real frustrations and fallibilities that tend to complicate a genuine human experience.”
