“It’s important to know yourself and take pride in who you are–flaws and all–but sometimes this pride can be so stubborn that we are unwilling to change the behaviors that we know hurt ourselves and push people away. We develop this false sense of attachment to our problems or vices, viewing them as inherent parts of our nature when they don’t have to be. It’s a self-fulfilling prophecy, and I’ve had to learn the hard way that you can’t help change people who don’t want to change. “In Your Ways” is a lament to the loved ones in my life, be they family, friends, or partners, who I’ve given up on in this regard to protect my own mental health.” – Greg Marquis
“In Your Ways” follows the band’s release of their first single, “On Your Laurels.”
Since their formation, Actor Observer from Boston, Massachusets, has become a well-respected musical force throughout New England. Their dynamic sound and electric live performance are charged with a visceral sincerity and vulnerability that many audience members find refreshing in the current age of post-hardcore. The band’s debut, Pareidolia, is a genre-spanning LP exploring the personal empowerment and crippling insecurity of realizing that our reality is often only limited by our own perception. The record was produced by Kevin Dye (Gates, Owel, Vasudeva).
