Central New Jersey alternative rock outfit Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son has just released its new EP ‘We Go On’ via Telegraph Hill Records.

Of the title track, frontman Bobby Mahoney says, “The track is about the cosmos, space, the universe, life, and death. It wonders about what happens to the energy things leave behind when we can no longer see or experience them. It’s about the luck that we end up on this planet at the same time as others and that our paths cross in the ways they do, when they do, and why they do. I believe the impact of our brief time on this planet will echo long after we are gone. “Like your favorite song, we go on.”

Born in the midst of the pandemic, when the world was shut down and the public was forced to separate, the recording of ‘We Go On’ ironically served to unite them. During times of uncertainty, Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son emphasize sticking together and finding meaning. The themes of camaraderie and optimistic existentialism are paramount to the EP and serve as a common thread throughout the five eclectic tunes.

‘We Go On’ takes the listener on a journey that gives meaning to the last two years. Frontman Bobby Mahoney says, “With the first track, ‘Moth To The Flame,’ it’s asking ‘why am I this way?’ and by title and closing track,’ We Go On’ it’s ‘why is everything this way?’” Though Mahoney is adamant that this is not a pandemic record, he admits, “it is obvious that the state of the world definitely had an effect on these recordings.”

Bobby Mahoney and the Seventh Son has made a name for itself in the vibrant Asbury Park, NJ music scene, sharing the stage with the likes of Frank Turner, Against Me!, and The Gaslight Anthem, opening for Bon Jovi, and jamming with Bruce Springsteen and other notable songwiters at multiple Light Of Day Music Festivals, which benefit Parkinson’s, ALS, and PSP research.
