Leading school assemblies followed by evening, full-production concerts coast-to-coast, Indiana-based pop/rock band Attaboy releases the danceable pop track “Golden” today (Oct. 20) from Radiate Music at digital and streaming outlets globally here.
Written by Attaboy band members Ryan Payne (vocals/guitar/piano), Jeff Edgel (guitar/piano), Melanie Watson (bass/background vocals) and Christian Watson (drums), “Golden” was produced, mixed and mastered by Doug Weier (Anberlin, We Are Leo) along with engineering by Luke Johns (The Young Escape, Jordan Feliz).
“‘Golden’ is a call to light up the darkness wherever you go,” says Payne. “As a band, we get to shine light into dark places when we perform in public schools where students are hurting and in need of hope. We want ‘Golden’ to put a smile on your face and inspire you to break through the darkness and light up your world.”
Chorus … Breaking through the night, Fire’s growing, Dancing rain or shine, I’m golden, Catch that rising light, Now I’m glowing, Can’t stop shining, I’m golden, I’m golden.
The new single follows Attaboy’s first new single in four years, “Makin’ Moves.” Together with Attaboy’s sixth full-length album WILD features the Parade.com-premiered anti-apathy track “Waking Up,” the songs are hitting dance floors, fitness centers and workout playlists along with concert venues across the country.
Bringing its new music, fan favorites, and hopeful messages to multiple states this fall, Attaboy’s 2023 schedule continues with events in Michigan, Indiana, Pennsylvania, and Tennessee. While the band’s assemblies and youth conference events are generally closed to the public (these dates can be found at here, concerts open to the public can be found on the band’s website at here.
With more new music to come, all the latest Attaboy tour and album information can be found on their website and socials, including Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, TikTok, Apple Music, Spotify and YouTube.
Witnessing a ubiquitous longing for authentic social and spiritual connection, Attaboy’s music and message is reaching skeptical ears—feet moving to the beat, voices finding belonging in the harmony and hearts opening, blooming simply through the invitation to hope for something more.
During its school assemblies, the band uniquely combines its energic and relevant music with a positive message for students, sharing personal experiences of taking a stand for what is right and encouraging students to make their own decisions. Topics they cover include not judging others based on appearance, rejecting the negative labels placed by others, making wise decisions and not letting the past define the future.
