“I wrote “Feel Me Now” about a handful of toxic relationships I had to navigate through in my early adulthood. I was going through a major transitional period in my life where I desperately needed to figure out who I was, and more importantly, who I didn’t want to be. Feel Me Now expresses the desperation and heartache of feeling confined in a broken relationship that you know is only hurting both of you. We make mistakes, we cling to a love that is fleeting, and we hurt each other in ways we can never take back. Not from a place of malice, but from a place of fear and unresolved trauma, and a longing for something we know we can’t have.” – Patty Glover, lead vocalist.
If Not For Me have shown significant growth with their latest album, Eulogy which on its first week reached #53 – “Top Current Hard Rock Albums,” #70 – “Top New Artist Albums,” and #173 – “Top Current Independent Albums” on Billboard. The album received widespread praise for its tight musicianship, emotive lyrics, and unrelenting energy.

If Not For Me have no intention of slowing down having shared the stage with bands such Killswitch Engage, Currents, August Burns Red, Ice Nine Kills, Palisades, Attack Attack and more.
