It’s taken us three EPs and over half a decade to finally create the album we’ve always wanted. This is Telltale,” the band shares. “If there is one major takeaway from the record, it’s that escaping into the isolation of your vices isn’t a solution to the feeling of disconnection.

About the new single, they add: “This track is for anyone who enjoys a late-night drive while they reflect and self-deprecate about every past relationship they’ve had.”

The album will be available, in addition to the limited to 150 vinyl, exclusively at

About Telltale

Hailing from Richmond, Virginia, Telltale is a dynamic quartet— composed of John Carteret (vocals), Bryce Marshall (guitar), Tim Fogg (bass), and Travis Slack (drums)— known for their emotive lyrics, infectious melodies, and an unwavering commitment to sharing the stories that shape their lives.

The band has released a string of EPs over their career— Good Intentions (2017), Timeless Youth (2019), and Lie Your Way Out (2022)— utilizing those songs to master their craft and hone into their sound. Fan favorite “Rose”, from Timeless Youth, has amassed almost 8 million listens on Spotify while Lie Your Way Out’s Slowburn” sparked conversation about climate change and the abundance of wildfires.

With the release of “Otherside” in December, Telltale teased the next era of their music which takes a step forward into dealing with reality in a yearningly powerful way. It’s an all encompassing single that proves the band has grown in sound and style exponentially and should get listeners excited for what is to come. The music video, directed by Chase Warren, is an immersive dive into the complexities of chasing an unknown side of reality and gives an extra dimension to the song’s meaning. “Otherside” has been added to editorial playlists such as Spotify’sAll New Rock” and has garnered thousands of listens.

Telltale’s live performances have helped cultivate a continuously exciting and personable experience as they have had the pleasure of sharing the stage with other standout bands in the scene such as Holding Absence, Knuckle Puck, and Trash Boat. 2023 has been quite the year for touring as they coheadlined a full U.S. tour with label-mates Sundressed and supported The Home Team on select dates of their spring tour. The band also made a trip abroad with a UK tour and an appearance at 2000 Trees, an independent rock festival.

Through their music, Telltale invites you to join them on a journey through the highs and lows of life, where every song is a page turned in the book of their collective experiences.
