Epic XVIII is back at it again with their new single “Make it Right.” Their first release since their album “EPIC 18” in May, “Make it Right" sticks true to the band's ska style with an energetic horn line and upbeat tempo that will get even the heaviest of those Dr. Martens jumping around.

“Make it Right" was collaboratively written by guitar player Austin Chavarin and baritone saxophonist and lead singer Adam Marquez. Chavarin is responsible for the infectious horn riff, while Marquez provided the lyrics and bridge for the song. Often referred to as “the Dad song" by bandmates, the lyrics for “Make it Right" were written in effort to show Marquez's 4 kids that attitude is everything.

This single inspires audience members to take a step back and reflect on their perspective on life and decisions they make. When faced with adversity and struggling times, how do you react, respond and resolve your situation? With the chorus singing in harmony “Keeping your head up!” and “Don't quit when you get stuck!” it is easy to get the sense that Epic XVIII wants nothing more than to show their listeners that the power of their attitude is in their hands, so, “Make it Right!”

Following the release of the “Make it Right” single, Epic XVIII plans on releasing their second studio album in “II” coming out October 18th. "Make It Right" will be available for streaming and download on September 20th.


Make It Right by EPIC XVIII (194171673580)

If all you ever do is spend time thinking about how you’ll fail
Then why is it a surprise that your work seems to no avail
If you know you can’t then you won’t and you might as well not even start
Or at least until you’ve done some work and given yourself a change of heart
The bottomless pit of failure is easy to go down
If you’re thinking of what won’t work your thoughts will just keep going round and round

If you take the time to realize that our view in life is our gift
You see struggle fall away while you are hanging on the riff
Taking the right we’re given to own the thoughts that are in our head
And realize the paradise that we live in long before we’re dead
The constant growth of happiness requires full attention
And always being mindful of the goal as aforementioned
You must be like the water as someone once said
grow like a river going with the flow at every bend

And Life keeps going….

Keeping your head up
Is some of the best advice you’ll ever get
Don’t quit when you get stuck
Just stop and find another way to look at it
You have to know what you can do
And do your best to follow through
It’s your attitude so make it right

It's easy to see all of life's obstacles
But take it from me surpassing them is possible
On the way you’ll scrape your knees
And life keeps going
