The Chad Sipes Stereo Says ‘There’s a Pill For That’ in Brand New Album, Thoughts and Prayers

By Daniel Warren Hill

The Chad Sipes Stereo have just unveiled their brand new EP, Thoughts and Prayers, the band’s first release since their 2019 EP, Dig. Enlisting the help of producer Dave Wheeler of Limousine Beach, The Chad Sipes Stereo have compiled 10 songs focusing on America’s obsession with pills, tackling the problems and the promises accompanying the industry from a variety of perspectives including overmedication, the joy of feeling healthy again, and addiction.

The Chad Sipes Stereo is a seasoned indie alt rock quartet that fans of band influences like Weezer, Green Day, and Foo Fighters will enjoy; their grunge guitar sound blends with elements to retain the band’s edgy nature while incorporating a modern luster. Throughout Thoughts and Prayers, listeners are guided along a narrative spanning from melancholy, darkness, and gloom to moments of anthemic sunshine and euphoria; a narrative supported both lyrically and musically.

Our selection from the Thoughts and Prayers, “Therapy” contains a quirky intro and verse section and a heavy chorus as The Chad Sipes Stereo contemplates the seconds counting by and whether or not drug therapy is a viable alternative to talking it through. Check it out below, and find it on the Alchemical Records Multigenre Mixture playlist on Spotify.
