Defeatist

Album: I'm Only Dreaming (2016)
  • Eisley's first new song in three years, this was the band's first release following the departures of guitarist Chauntelle D'Agostino, and keyboard/vocalist Stacy King. This left vocalist/guitarist Sherri DuPree-Bemis as the band's primary writer and frontwoman. DuPree-Bemis told Billboard magazine that the lyrics provide motivation for her new challenge.

    "It's about belonging to something bigger than yourself and not letting your own insecurities trip you up from having everything that you want," she explained. "'Defeatist' is about fighting for something or someone you love with passion and devotion, no matter the cost…When you know someone is worth fighting for, you fight till the death."
