Stay Away Release First Single "Give It Your All" Plus Video

BY: ZACH MICKLEA

DETROIT - The music has been teased for months, and some of it is finally here. Stay Away has released their debut single "Give It Your All." The band also filmed a music video for the song.

The members of Stay Away have all been in bands "that haven't worked out," said bass player John Kick. "And after a while, it felt like we were running in circles doing the same thing over and over."

This song comes from the band's upcoming full length, which is due out on October 15. Writing for the album came shortly after three of the members were on tour with different bands and met. Wasim Bazzi (vocals and guitar) and Kris Herrmann (drums) started writing together when the tour was over and asked Kick and guitar player Andrew Benjamin to begin writing as well.

After spending three days in a room together, the album was written, and recording it started earlier this year.

"I'm honestly super happy with the video and how it turned out," Kick said. "It's the perfect first chapter to the story of this album."

The video for "Give It Your All" can be streamed below.
