Release date: 23 April 2012
When we recorded Please Intervene we recorded sixteen tracks, but we only released twelve. One of the four that didn’t make the album was a re-recording of Lead me on from our first demo.
It had been five years since the album and we’d done a bit of recording that hadn’t been released and kids and other stuff had slowed everything way down, when I suddenly realised “hey, it’s the ten year anniversary of Blink and miss it!”.
I still consider Lead me on to be our first ‘proper’ song. It wasn’t our first song, but it was the first song where we kind of nailed it. Needless to say, Aaron wrote it. So we went back to the unreleased new recording, re-did the bass and vocals, and re-released it to mark the anniversary.
We also did a promo video because in the intervening years youtube had happened. Watch it by clicking play:
