Dateline : Los Angeles, California

Coming out of the creative epicenter that IS Southern California, the group COCKEYED OPTIMIST prepares a major new chapter in their creative existence. With the release of the title track from their upcoming album 'INTO THE NIGHT', the band makes a bold musical & lyrical statement to who they are & what makes them tick.

"I feel that "Into the Night" is the first time in a long time that one of our songs represents my thoughts and feelings 100%", states lead singer/songwriter Cynda Renae, "The riffs, the lyrical content...everything about that song speaks to me. I've often thought recently about the lack of togetherness we are experiencing as a people and how closed off we make ourselves. But if there is one thing I've learned in my dark times, it is that the relationships with people you love and care about that make life worth living."

The band, getting comparisons to the best of such female fronted acts as EVANESCENSE & PARAMORE, feels that this is their best & most potent work.

"I believe it is this deep connection I feel to the song that made me very particular during the writing process", continues Renae, "I wasn't the most open to some ideas that were presented. You could say I let my connection cloud my vision of what the song could be. But once just accepted everything and finally saw the big picture I realized we made all the right choices. It's very exciting to have this song out in world for people to hear!"

Joined by Guitarist/Writer Sean Pierce Johnson & Drummer Nick Stone, the band has distilled years of observation & deep thought into the lyrics & musical development on the new album.

Johnson tells us "For me, "Into the Night" is a perfect example of a "new chapter". It's been several years since we released a record and we've learned so much about ourselves during that time. Now, with this album, I feel like we have our best material and our best shot at showing the world who we are and what we are about. We lived our motto: through the darkness, hope emerges. We left our holes and came out into the world stronger and more resilient. This is a very exciting time."

The band has secured the guidance & expertise of INDIEPOWER, the powerhouse marketing & promotion network led by 45+ year industry innovator Jay Warsinske. Jay has been on the cutting edge of breaking bands & developing new music since the golden 70's birth of alternative & hard rock as we know it today. His voluminous credits include helping to launch & break such artists as U2, Metallica, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Nirvana, Sublime & many others.

"I'm happy to finally release the song "Into the Night", the first song from the album of the same title", adds Cynda, "This is the first song we used a 7-string guitar on so it's a bit heavier in tone. We decided with this our first full length album, to release the songs one at a time over the next two years. This will enable us to keep putting out new music, since our last EP "All That You Were" was released in 2013. I'm especially excited to finally have Nick on a record."

The album is being scheduled for release later this year through THE ORCHARD/SONY & INDIEPOWER, promoting on the final WARPED TOUR, IES the INDIE ENTERTAINMENT SUMMIT, & marquee events throughout the year. The band's website is www.CockeyedOptimist.net.

Renae explains the plan "We hope to create a music video for each song as well. The concept of the "Into the Night" music video is that the three of us have gone our separate ways, but not in a good way. The lyrics "What has become of us? We're only into us," sum up the way we live in 2018. We've all become islands that shut reality out. To counteract this, "Into the Night" means that despite our fears, we need to live in the real world with real connections to others and nature."
