Be Well, the Baltimore hardcore quintet, unleashes emotionally charged anthems with their latest tracks “A Tap I Can’t Turn Off” and “Without A Compass,” exploring themes of inner turmoil and redemption, alongside an exciting lineup of upcoming US and Germany tour dates.

Be Well, the Baltimore hardcore quintet comprised of seasoned veterans from bands like Battery, Bane, Darkest Hour, and Fairweather, is back with a thunderous roar, dropping two new tracks that are nothing short of emotionally charged anthems. Produced by the esteemed Brian McTernan (known for his work with Turnstile, Thrice, and Hot Water Music), "A Tap I Can't Turn Off" and "Without A Compass" hit with the force of a sonic hurricane, exploring themes of inner turmoil, self-doubt, and the relentless pursuit of redemption.

Frontman Brian McTernan delves deep into the raw emotions behind each track, revealing that "A Tap I Can't Turn Off" is a poignant reflection on the fear of letting down those who have supported him unconditionally, while "Without A Compass" serves as a raw admission of feeling lost and broken, yet hopeful for eventual healing and resolution.

Both songs are a testament to Be Well's ability to blend melodic hardcore with introspective lyricism, delivering a cathartic listening experience that resonates with authenticity and vulnerability. Stream these powerful tracks on YouTube and all major platforms to immerse yourself in Be Well's sonic journey.

But the excitement doesn't stop there. Be Well is set to embark on a series of headline and support appearances across the US and Germany throughout May and June, sharing stages with punk luminaries Hot Water Music and I Am The Avalanche. With their dynamic live performances and unapologetically honest songwriting, Be Well promises an unforgettable experience for fans old and new.

Formed in 2019 by Brian McTernan, Be Well emerged as a collaborative effort among friends and colleagues in the punk and hardcore scene, marking McTernan's transition from behind the soundboard to center stage. Following their acclaimed debut album, "The Weight and the Cost," Be Well returns with "Hello Sun," a six-song EP that continues to explore themes of struggle and resilience with newfound clarity and perspective.

As Be Well continues to evolve and expand their sonic landscape, fans can expect more groundbreaking music on the horizon. Keep an eye out for updates and announcements as Be Well continues to carve their path in the world of hardcore music.
