Evolution Series: #13 “Present Tense”
About the Episode
Episode Release Date: March 22nd, 2021
It’s Evolution BAYBAY! It’s that time again to go fully in depth with a song’s live history and talk about the versions that make a song stand out over time.
This episode we’ll evolve with Present Tense! You guys voted for it, and we’ve been wanting to do this one for a while, so get ready as we dig into every crevice of the song. We’ll start by talking about No Code‘s impact, or lack thereof, and how potentially the #10 track off a record that didn’t really land could get overlooked.
But it’s one that the band seemed to always feel, even to the point that Ed was using it as a healing process for himself. We’ll work through the years to find out the exact moment, and boy is there ever one, where Present Tense finally broke through and became that crowd favorite it was always meant to be.
