STATION Debut New Song 'A Matter Of Time'; Album Out Nov 1

New York-based melodic rock band Station will independently release its third studio album, Stained Glass, on Station Music on Nov. 1.
The unsigned band — comprising singer Patrick Kearney, guitarist/keyboardist Chris Lane, bassist Emi Asta and drummer Tony Baptist — saw its sophomore album, More Than the Moon, land on Billboard’s Heatseekers Albums chart and has opened for the likes of Pat Benatar, Poison’s Bret Michaels, Motley Crue’s Vince Neil and Stryper.
Lead single “A Matter of Time” deals with romanticizing goals in life, such as meeting the right person at the right time. Musically, it has a “bluesy rock aesthetic,” according to Kearney. And as the first track on the album, he sees it as a gateway song for listeners who may not be familiar with Station.
“It’s a great kickoff point because it’s very middle of the road in terms of our sound,” he says. “Anyone listening to it for the first time will be like, ‘Okay, I get it — this is a rock band that’s rockin’.”
As for the song’s meaning, he adds, “It’s about not being able to recognize authenticity because you have had a fantasy for so long. In the video [for the song], we personified the fantasy as this really attractive girl, something that you chased after, but you romanticized it. So when reality kicks in, it’s kind of like, ‘Wait a minute, I can’t tell if this is real or not.’ ”
