The March Divide has released three albums and four EPs of original material since 2013. Listen to the singles here.

Jared Putnam, The March Divide’s sole permanent member, is a non-stop workhorse. His upcoming EP “Don’t Let Me Die In Arizona” (August 4th, 2017) represents the fifth EP of original material, along with three full-length albums, that he has issued since 2013.

“I really wanted to deliver something more pop than rock,” Putnam says about “Tired Voice,” the first single from the new batch of songs, now streaming via The Big Takeover. “Lyrically, this song is about the one step forward, two steps back feeling that comes with every music career, over time.”

Thankfully, the new EP is not posthumously titled “I Died In Arizona,” but it came close.

“I was in Arizona for a week and I got sicker than I’ve ever been in my life on that trip.” Putnam also happened to be listening to the final mixes of these new songs at the time. “For the rest of my life, I’m always going to associate these songs with how sick I was that week. I actually remember listening to the mixes and saying out loud, ‘please, don’t let me die in Arizona.’”

Today, Putnam is safely back home in San Antonio, Texas. “Don’t Let Me Die In Arizona” arrives on August 4th, 2017. Jared Putnam of The March Divide is available for interviews. Contact Josh Bloom at Fanatic for more information.
