Balance & Composure are no more, but lead vocalist Jon Simmons remains busy with his solo project Creeks. He's gearing up to open a few dates for Manchester Orchestra later this month into October, and he's also got a new single out today, "For Selfish Reasons." It's a somber, atmospheric acoustic song that actually sounds a bit like Manchester Orchestra, and Jon's impassioned delivery is perfect for this kind of song. "'For Selfish Reasons' is a song about preemptive grief," Jon says. "It is about a feeling of inevitable pain that has almost been teasing you daily. It is a plea for health for somebody you cannot imagine your life without." We're premiering the song's lyric video, and you can check that out below.
