Punk Troubadour Gab De La Vega Unveils His Latest Single “Off My Chest”

From his forthcoming studio album 'Life Burns'

Gab De La Vega unveils his latest single and music video, “Off My Chest,” taken from the upcoming fourth studio album, Life Burns, set for release on March 1, 2024. This marks his collaboration with SBÄM Records, overseeing the worldwide release of Life Burns, in partnership with labels like Sell The Heart Records (United States), Epidemic Records, Motorcity Produzioni, and Overdrive (all in Italy).

“Off My Chest” introduces listeners to a more powerful full-band sound, pushing boundaries with dynamic drum beats and fierce guitar riffs, influenced by Gab De La Vega’s hardcore and punk roots. This transformation is further enhanced by his studio collaboration with long-time friend and bandmate Simone Piccinelli from The Open Cages. De La Vega’s resonant voice skillfully conveys the song’s emotive lyrics, showcasing his signature expressiveness.

“Off My Chest” is the first single off my upcoming fourth album “Life Burns”, which is coming out March 1st 2024. This album is dense in meaning and this song makes no exception. It is actually one of the most meaningful of the whole album. It is a very personal song but I think it can resonate with the listeners, I’m sure some people out there would easily relate if they had similar experiences growing up.

The way interactions shape the way we are, especially in the formative years, is often under-looked. It took me a while to understand that some features of my personality exist and to face them openly, to be outspoken and verbal about them felt immediately redemptive and even liberating during the writing of the lyrics.

As a seasoned performer, Gab De La Vega’s journey has spanned across Europe, including the UK, the US East Coast, Canada, and South America, sharing stages with prominent artists such as Frank Turner, Against Me!, Laura Jane Grace, PUP, Chuck Ragan, Joey Cape and more. In 2022 he appeared with his band at Frank Turner’s Lost Evenings Festival in Berlin, at the British singer-songwriter’s invitation and he recently embarked on the “Road to the Next Chapter Tour” in 2023, bridging the gap between his third record, “Beyond Space And Time,” and the upcoming album.
