With Covid-19 postponing their tour with Smile Empty Soul, Orlando Hard Rock band New Dilemma have released a lyric video for their single, “Don’t Lose Control“. The track, a dark modern rock banger featuring a blistering solo from renowned guitar virtuoso Bobby Keller, is all about staying true to yourself in tough situation. “Don’t lose control is about not losing yourself in a relationship and becoming somebody you don’t want to be,” explains vocalist Joey Factor, “I have been that person I don’t want to be and it’s not pretty.“
The band, which formed on Halloween night in 2017, finds their signature dark rock sound by mixing the past and the present. “We have no preconceived ideas of exactly what we want the sound to be, we just chase what we want to hear by using past influence with modern technique and digital sounds.“
This formula has proven successful, with New Dilemma’s 2020 “Is Your Story Over” (Pavement Entertainment) charting all the way to #27 on the Billboard Mainstream Rock Radio Charts and #10 on Foundations Rock Radio Charts, alongside some of today’s biggest names!
The EP, Produced and Mixed by Ben Johnson and Mastered by Machine The Producer (Lamb of God, Clutch, Fallout Boy), features some of the band’s most introspective and personal songwriting to date. “Our words are real moments that I have personally been through and I fans they can feel that.” Factor explains. In fact, New Dilemma itself exists as a personal promise fulfilled, “My special needs daughter is the reason New Dilemma exists.” says Factor, “After being a single dad to a special needs child for most of my adult life, my daughter said “Go show the world what you got, Dad“, and that’s what I’m doing.“
New Dilemma is currently working on new music while rescheduling their tour with Smile Empty Soul for fall of 2021.
