TFN has been covering Leeroy Stagger since 2009 and we jumped at the chance to premiere his new video/single for “Does Anybody Live Here?” Stagger is a solid talent that hails from Victoria B.C Canada and has toured and played with artists such as Steve Earle, Jason Isbell, and Drive By Truckers to just name a few. “Does Anybody Live Here?” is the 2nd single from Leeroy Stagger’s new album Dystopian Weekends, which is set for release on October 1st via Tonic Records. The song and video explore the pain of a broken heart and the loneliness and feelings of isolation that occur when a relationship ends.
“It’s been ages since I’ve felt the weight of a broken heart due to a break up,” says Leeroy. “Last year some close friends decided to break it off after a few years of a joined life together. As a writer, I’ve always been able to put myself into most others shoes and empathetically feel those feelings. That moment as it all goes down, if we are enlightened enough, it can go fairly smoothly. If we aren’t, it can be a real mess of tension and tears. This situation was no different from most breakups. Everybody can relate to a broken heart – the melancholy and pain of a separation. My job as a songwriter is to distill those feelings into a four-minute song.”
“Does Anybody Live Here?” will be available tomorrow on Spotify, Apple Music/iTunes, and other digital retailers and streaming services worldwide. Also, make sure you put his full length, Dystopian Weekends, on your list to checkout come October as it for sure will be another quality heartfelt outing!
