Seven Years of Silence is the forthcoming album by Austin, Texas-based alternative singer-songwriter 1st Base Runner aka Tim Husmann. Break Even is the latest single from it, arriving together with a video created by acclaimed director Matt Mahurin (Tom Waits, Peter Gabriel, Alice in Chains).

1st Base Runner offers a darker approach to his refined indie rock, pulling influence from post punk, contemporary electronica and post rock.

The artist comments: "This song is about the expectations other people place upon us in life. This could and should include life partners, parents, and authoritarian figures in general. It is written from the perspective of an adolescent trying to find meaning in the world. It attempts to reconcile the void between what is often given as advice and the underlying truths of what it means to be human and to be at peace with one's existence. This is also intertwined with other people's interpretations of a vengeful creator and the pitfalls of projecting anger on the behalf of a deity. The instrumental sections of the song are intended to carry the listener away and into the deeper chasms of meaning and purpose."

Seven Years of Silence will be out July 30th, 2021.
