Honeypot has dropped one last EP before the Charleston rock band’s album release on March 21. “Shut Your Mouth” is the last release of a string of singles off the band’s upcoming album, On the B Side.
The latest song leans into a hard-rock sound, though the band usually plays with an indie-rock vibe. The band describes “Shut Your Mouth” as an “anti-love song about volatile relationships.”
Guitarist and vocalist Frank Hartman, who is an attorney by trade, offers strong guitar riffs while singing the satirical song about a troubled relationship.
“Shut Your Mouth” isn’t the first Honeypot song to spin a serious issue. In fact, it’s kind of the band’s stock and trade. “On the B Side,” the title track from the upcoming album, looks at celebrity and fortune. Two other tunes from the album, “Fake News” and “Over the Line,” both look at the legacy of former President Donald Trump and political division.
Hartman told the website Concert Crap that the song “addresses long-term couple dynamics where someone seeks solace in substance abuse. As one person shrinks, the other looms larger to fill the void. But with a funny backdrop.”
“Shut Your Mouth” is the fourth single to be released from Honeypot’s new album. Stream On the B Side starting March 21 on YouTube and Spotify.
