As independent bands climb the ladders of their industry, they're often told to come up with a story to tell. For Rightfully Accused, finding a story is not the problem. Rather, which story to tell, is the more perplexing question for this group.
This is no longer the simple story of a bunch of young boys who set out with a common vision of attaining musical success, certainly it started out that way, but over the years those boys have grown into young men. Young men who've been through dozens of trials individually and as a group, but continued to stand tall.
This is now the story of a group of Americans who can relate to every worker who has fought to keep their livelihood alive, only to lose everything to circumstances beyond their control. It is the story of a generation who grew up in a land of promise, now dazed by the truths of a world that radically changed just as they were coming into their own. It's the story of every broken hearted soul who has ever loved someone, or something they couldn't have. It's the story of every frustrated, torn, confused, broken soul out there. But it's also a story of perseverance, an unwillingness to bend or break under the pressure that the world continues to relentlessly barrage us all with. It's a story of affirmative action in the face of adversity. This is also a story of a group who believe that perhaps the trials were necessary to help each person find themselves, to humble a selfish culture that needed to realize its hidden strengths. This is a story of passion, pain, strength , love, and growth.
Through a unique sound that blends various characteristics of rock, pop, dance, R&B and more, Rightfully Accused's newest album, "Western Air - Elements of the New American Dream" takes on the daunting task of trying to articulate the multi-faceted emotional complexity that surges through the hearts, minds, and souls of the modern American.
