Bear With Me

  • This song finds vocalist and lyricist Anthony Raneri putting the music business under the microscope, as well as Bayside's place within it. He said this song "has a lot to do with my career and my legacy as a musician. You look at bands like mine, and it's hard to ignore that a lot of Pop-Punk or mid-2000s Emo bands just sort of disappeared."

    "Fortunately for us our band has been able to make it through a lot of that," Raneri added. "There are definitely days when I feel like I'm a novelty, but like the line in the song, I think I'm twice the man I used to be."
