Upside Down is set to release on October 7th, 2016 through Equal Vision Records. The album was recorded in Los Angeles, CA with producers Brandon Paddock (Panic! At The Disco, Avril Lavigne, Pentatonix), Erik Ron (Saosin, Panic! At The Disco) and Mike Green (5 Seconds of Summer, All Time Low, Cassadee Pope). It was chosen as one of the “Most Anticipated Albums of 2016” by Alternative Press Magazine and is now available for pre-order by visiting http://setitoffband.com/.
Set It Off recently released a lyric video for “Life Afraid" - view the video on Vevo or view the video on YouTube. The band previously released the song and music video for “Something New” which was co-written with Alex Gaskarth of All Time Low. Watch the music video for “Something New” here.
In a joint statement, the band says, "We are all extremely excited to be releasing our new record Upside Down, and for the world to finally hear what we’ve been working so hard on for the past year. We are anxious for fans to hear our new songs, as they are our most mature work to date. We’ve challenged ourselves to break down genre walls – pulling influences from pop, hip-hop and R&B. Brace yourself – this is Set It Off at the pinnacle of our careers.”
