Kart Race Day!

Our guys are awesome kart racers, didn’t you know? This video blog is kind of old, but I still enjoy it a lot every time I watch it. The Fray’s members are racing karts; I hope you enjoy it as much as I do when I watch it!

Isaac is the best doing that, well, it seems,

Acoustic Performance of Little House

Little House is an awesome song in all the ways possible, right? The lyrics are very meaningful (it’s by The Fray, that’s something normal), the rhythm is pretty awesome, and Isaac’s aggressive voice fits with the lyrics and rhythm perfectly. But something that’s really “frayntastic” is the acoustic version of this song. It’s not an official one, but they played the song acoustic live in a Video Blog a long time ago, I think 2007. Hope you enjoy the awesome performance by the guys: 

The story of The Fighter

Hello! What’s up? Today, I’m going to tell you the story behind another Fray song: The Fighter. First of all, the song was released in 2012, and belongs to the album: Scars & Stories. This song is kind of peculiar, just saying. And that’s because the song is probably the unique Fray song which was first started by seeing a picture.
The song was written by both Isaac Slade and Joe King, as usual. As Isaac Slade adds, he saw a picture of a boxing fight in a newspaper, and from there it all came. In the picture, there was a boxer fallen in the fight, and a girl surprised of seeing his man fallen and another boxer, which was like: “I didn’t mean to kill him”. After that, Isaac put on the piano the picture and started writing the song. Anyway, he started writing the song as if the boxer was fighting with his doubts; as Isaac says: “It’s a scary thing to face your doubts, especially in a relationship”. Then, Isaac also adds this: “I think it’s just like if you don’t face death, you can’t really live. If you don’t face divorce, you can’t really stay married. It’s not an ‘I do’, and then you’re set. It’s an ‘I do’, everyday. And when those doubts come in you can’t stuff them, you can cram them, ignore them, but they’re like hungry dogs in the basement clamoring to get out. So what I meant to communicate was that doubts are ok. Struggling in a relationship is ok. Wondering if there’s somebody better is ok. Because then you choose to stay, instead of shrugging your shoulders, saying it’s good enough. If you carry those doubts secretly hidden in the corner of your chest, they’ll kill you. They’ll kill everything, man. But if you kind of bring them out in the open and talk about them and sort through them and figure out where they’re coming from and face them, it’s scary sometimes; sometimes the marriage ends or the relationship ends, but sometimes you stay married for the rest of your life and it’s real”. These are the words of Isaac Slade who said that in an interview. 
        To conclude, the song has a quote which really reflects what Slade said: “What breaks your bones is not the load you’re carrying, what breaks you down is all in how you carry it”, and Joe King added also some things about that: “we all have something that we’re inevitable going to be carrying with us, but how you carry it is the difference. I think that if you carry it in front of you or behind you or if you’re carrying everything, the point of how you’re actually carrying your load is all the difference. I have stuff that I’m carrying that I’ll carry the rest of my life. Not that they’re bad, but I have them here. They’re almost like good things now that I’m carrying with me from the destruction”. This was also said in the same interview as Isaac’s last paragraph, but this was said by Joe. 

Well, I guess there’s not anything more to say about this song. Here you can watch a video for the song posted in The Fray’s channel, I don’t know if it’s considered official or not anyway…

Love Don't Die Official Music Video

Hello guys! Friday at 3AM ET “The Fray” released the official video for their brand new single “Love Don’t Die”. Maybe you know this, but Candice Accola is starring in the video (she is engaged to Joe King and acts in The Vampire Diaries). In my opinion, the video was totally awesome, and I really enjoyed it. What did you think about it? I’m going to post here the official video and another video of “Behind the Scenes” :) 

Also I have two news more to tell you; first one: The Fray has delayed the date of releasing Helios, now it’ll be released February 25th; and the second one: they also did a Live Chat again the same day of the releasing of the official video for Love Don’t Die (December 6rd
