“Growing up, I was surrounded by visions of Nascar, rock ’n’ roll and being the one who would change everything,” Cain says in a press release. “They make you think it’s all achievable and that if nothing else, you should at least die trying. What they don’t tell you is that you need your neighbor more than your country needs you. I wrote this song as an expression of my frustration with all the things the ‘American Teenager’ is supposed to be but never had any real chance of becoming.”

In addition, Cain has announced new East Coast tour dates. Tickets go on sale April 22 at 10 a.m. local time here.
