NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE, USA, July 7, 2022 / — The “secret” is out. Nashville Group Suitable for rivals announced the release of their explosive new single “Secret” on July 22 via Freak Machine Records. Written by lead singer Renee Phoenix and her bandmate Thomas Amason, the new single is the latest in a series of releases scheduled through December 2022.

“Secret,” beginning with a snare drum and electric guitar battle, reveals the music industry’s “man behind the curtain.” With her signature gravelly growl, Phoenix offers a warning in the chorus: “I know your secret / No, I won’t keep it.” The biting guitar before the chorus howls in warning. Fit For Rivals has all the teeth to back their bark as they call out the two-faced front of the music industry.

“Sick like a dog
Bone of contention
A sharp tongue
With bad intentions
Can’t you see you’re all the same?
live on someone’s name
In the name of Jesus, you better pray”

“The song is about knowing too much about what’s behind the curtain in the music industry. Kind of like The Wizard of Oz. It’s ambiguous enough that you can relate that to other parts about your life, not just exclusively about my experience. That’s the kind of lyrics I like to write,” Phoenix says.

Ready to dominate the world, Fit For Rivals has announced that they will be releasing new music with highly anticipated collaborations through the end of the year.

“Secret” is available for PRE-REGISTER HERE.
