Pathway has just released its latest single “White Rabbit”. The track is the first single released as part of the album release cycle for their debut album, Raised In A Haunted House. “White Rabbit was the first song I and the band wrote for the Pathway album,” explains vocalist and guitarist Billy Steele, “During quarantine, I had a lot of time on my hands, and went down a “rabbit hole” of creativity if you will. Some days would produce multiple songs, others I would be left empty-handed. Catching that moment in the air is brief, so you have to be ready when it hits you. That’s what “White Rabbit” is about. Going after what you want out of life. Chasing that white rabbit, but understanding you can get lost without good direction and self-discipline. Growth will happen if you focus your energy on the right places.”
Raised in a Haunted House is due out later in 2023. The Album was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Jamie King at The Basement Studios in Winston- Salem, NC, and features 10 alt-rock tracks that take the listener on a journey as the album is a concept piece about the shortcomings of humanity which are reflected through the individual. About the themes on the album, the band says, “How do we love and forgive those who seem unworthy of love and forgiveness? How do we shake the parts inside of us that we know are destructive to us as a person, and contribute to a brighter future for all of society? How do we see past the delusions of perfect harmony, and storybook endings, and realize that love is work? Not just in the relationship sense, but our everyday interactions, and self-love.”
A true act of love, the debut album has been over three years in the making, but it sees the new band firing on all cylinders. “Pathway came together, and we had a lot of momentum going, then like every new band we had some growing pains,” says the band. “Now we are on track, and feel we are stronger than ever.”Along with the single release, the band has released a lyric video for “White Rabbit”, which you can watch below.
Pathway is an alternative to genre-based heavy music. They take decades of influence and roll into a deliberate, abrasive, in-your-face, poetic sound. With their out-of-the-box approach and individual influence, Pathway delivers a sound that is truly their own. Applying three-part harmonies with their multi-vocalist style to a traditionally singular vocal sound they raise the dynamic bar.
Formed by Billy Steele in the winter of 2020 Pathway went through some growth periods. After a few lineup changes they found their stride and began pre-production of their upcoming debut album, Raised in a Haunted House.
The members of Pathway all come from different musical backgrounds, all rooted in the heavier side of music. They refer to their sound as being hardcore-influenced rock n roll. Riding the heels of the grunge era, and growing up in the early 2000s pop punk/emo scene you will hear plenty of that embedded in their sound as well. With a darker element to their lyrical style, and sound a friend coined their sound as having a “spooky groove”.
2023 looks to be a bright year for Pathway. With the release of their first single, “White Rabbit” Pathway hopes to make a strong sonic wave. Followed by a full-length album Pathway doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon.
