Back On Earth


Paris-based band Back On Earth start the year with a new video for “Back Home”, carrying a strong and rallying message. Much more than a lyrics video, each phrase is revealed by several people, featuring the special appearance of different bands from the French and international scene, who participated in the video, such as Eskemo, Romain Ughetto or Onlap. Between these shots, we can see the members of Back On Earth going about their activities in today’s world, punctuated by the different lockdowns.

“Back Home” is one of the tracks off the EP “Brand New Day” released last November, and follows the latest single of the same name, a duet with Telltale, which had previous support from Spotify’s All New Rock and Frog ‘n’ Roll editorial playlists. This melancholic single is an ode to this need to escape the heavy atmosphere that has been surrounding us for almost a year, but also to the importance of staying united.

Although 2020 has been a special year, Back On Earth has managed to bounce back with lots of releases – songs and music videos. The band is looking forward to continuing this trend in 2021 to show how important it is to find positivity in the midst of all this negativity.

About Back On Earth:

Ever since their formation in 2009, Back On Earth firmly established themselves in the French Pop-Punk scene with 4 EPs to their credit and playing shows supporting international bands like Motion City Soundtrack and Turnover whilst headlining shows across France and the United Kingdom. In 2010 the band embarked on a production collaboration with Bert Poncet from Chunk! No Captain Chunk!, with whom they recorded their first EP “Love (All I Was Able To Say)” who later produced their emo-anthem single “Save Me” in 2020.

In the following years, Back On Earth released 2 more EP’s with a “heavier” sound before going on a hiatus for 4 years where each member started working on different side projects. The band hit the studio again and released their new single “Youth” produced by Beau Burchell (Saosin) which delivers a more pop-oriented music while keeping their alternative and cosmic sound that characterizes them.

In the summer of 2020 Back On Earth released their track ‘Somebody Else’ which brings you all the emo vibes that you were missing from the MySpace era followed by their single ‘Heroes’, a song in which the introspective lyrics contribute to the atmosphere of spleen delivered by the music: a gloomy feeling far from being unpleasant. The tracks make part of the 4th’s Back On Earth’s EP co-worked with producer Federico Telesca, a nostalgic, realistic yet hopeful project to confirm the band’s position in the music scene which also sees a featuring with John Carteret from Richmond-based Telltale on ‘Brand New Day’, title track of the EP.
