half•alive RELEASE NEW SINGLE “HOT TEA” ALONG WITH THE MUSIC VIDEO

Long Beach based trio half•alive release their new single “Hot Tea” along with the music video via RCA Records. “Hot Tea” is co-produced by David Pramik (Lauv, Illenium, LANY) and OJIVOLTA (Kanye West, Jon Bellion, Halsey). The video is directed by half•alive’s Josh Taylor and choreographed by JA Collective. The band is excited to announce the 1st part of their new album Give Me Your Shoulders, Pt. 1 will be released in February 2022.

About “Hot Tea,” Josh Taylor from half•alive says, ““Hot Tea” is a deep longing to be touched by life. A desperate desire to love someone with sacred, caring hands & be loved in return by people & God & her creation. We shot this video on tour, representing that desperate longing with plastic- a material that is nearly invisible, yet air tight. That was the feeling for me at least. Plastic is a thin filament that prevents pure exposure to the raw ingredients of life. An artificial, translucent barrier to the heart that i will claw at until there is nothing left.”

About Give Me Your Shoulders, Pt. 1, Josh Taylor says, “We’ve never before explored the topic of love in our songs. This album is unexplored territory in that regard. It’s vulnerable. Exposing my shoulders to whoever will stop & listen. Many of the songs are about the cry for love’s hand around my heart. In one breath it’s about a person & about God. To ache for the comfort of another. To hide in the corner of their shoulder & know I am safe.

Give Me Your Shoulders is Love. To give what you cannot carry. To accept another’s burden without condition. To yoke yourself with the author of Love & find rest for your soul.” 

In support of the new album, halfalive will be hitting the road on their headlining “Give Me Your Shoulders (TOUR)” which will take them across North America as well as the UK and Europe. For the full list of tour dates see below and to purchase tickets go HERE.
