Having toured with the likes of Black Veil Brides, Alesana, and Escape the Fate, horror-inspired alt-rockers Get Scared are dropping their debut album Best Kind of Mess (Universal Motown) on July 12. Until then, the band is happy to share a new song, "Whore," just with us. As soon as we heard the title, we liked it. Then we listened to it, and we liked it even more. Crank up the volume, blast this shit, and read below what guitarist Johnny B has to say about the track.

REVOLVER It almost seems silly to ask, but what is "Whore" about?
Johnny B The song is about those people that try to get what they can out of you. We're basically calling them out, saying, "I know what you are." We're not necessarily calling out promiscuous women, but just bad people in general.

Which part of it did you come up with first? What was the inspiration?
As with most of our songs, it starts out with one riff.  In this case, I remember we were in the studio and we had a drum beat down and we found a riff and it felt very rockin’, so  we made vocals to fit to it. We wanted something with sass or anger and we thought, Let's just fucking get pissed off and call people out. It fit the song, the feeling and the riffs, so it accidentally came together as what it is.

Was this an easy song to write?
Yeah, it was probably one of the easiest songs we've done cause it came together really easily--just a good rock song that easily came together--and we were all stoked on it…so hell yeah!

What sort of feedback have you gotten on this song so far?
Really, really positive feedback--it's actually my mom's favorite song, which I think is funny. In our group of friends, it's one of people's favorite songs. People always say we should write more songs like that. People like it when artists call people out in their lyrics--we've gotten really good feedback from the song.
