SET IT OFF — singer/lyricist Cody Carson, guitarist Zach DeWall, and drummer Maxx Danziger — have teamed up with vocaloid Hatsune Miku to put a new and forward-thinking spin on Set It Off\’s already genre blending song \”Why Do I.\” The original appears on the trio\’s latest album Elsewhere, out now via Fearless Records. Get it here.

This collaboration fuses Hatsune Miku\’s unique pop style with Set It Off\’s driving pop punk and the end result is a one-of-a-kind sound that all love fans clamoring for more.
\”Set It Off have never been a band that’s fit into a box,\” Danziger explains. \”If there\’s any artist that shares this attitude, it\’s the greatest digital pop star of all time — Hatsune Miku. This collab is something we\’ve been trying to do for a long time and we\’re SO excited that it finally came together. We\’re always trying to break the mold and push the envelope of what\’s possible and expected in the music industry, and this is a huge step forward in that regard.\”
Since forming in Florida in 2008, Set It Off have released four albums, amassed a loyal following, and relocated to L.A., while their Top 10 Spotify tracks alone have racked up 528 million plays. The band\’s full-length debut album Cinematics (2012) embraced their moodier rock side, while later efforts took on an upbeat pop twist that culminated in a darker synergy of those styles on 2019\’s Midnight. 2022\’s Elsewhere is a transitional, moody, and forward-thinking release — one in which they have faced their demons and come out happier and more full of life than ever before.
