Oakland's Trails & Ways release the follow-up to their 2015 album Pathology on October 7. The 11 track Own It LP is available exclusively through their current Kickstarter. Following the band's previously released songs "My Things" and "Happiness", Trails & Ways shared another Own It jam this week titled "Get Loud". As they've noted before, Own It arrives after a period of change for T&W, including two members departing the band. Keith Brower Brown elaborated on the nexus of "Get Loud":
Our Brazil tour capped a year of destruction that made me face up to my vanity and closedness. This song is the catharsis I felt in dropping my guard, owning my flaws, and finding the deep confidence and desire to rock out.

Trails & Ways "Get Loud" Lyrics
it's my turn to check-in how to begin to start every part of me's moving can't take it apart
I'm fossilizing I wanna leave tough art all I feel is the motion can't take it apart
I'm done trying to polish up who's perfect, perfect, perfect after all? how could I get tight with you without my flaws?
I'm in the shower I'm gonna come out clean let's do some slick behavior lather rinse repeat
I love support groups I like attention cheap could you make selflessness feel easier for me?
I'm done trying to fool you twice who's perfect, perfect, perfect after all? how could I get tight with you without my flaws?
would you let me get loud with you? would you let me break out with you?
I've turned a corner I'm gonna prove past doubt before you think I'm hopeless you should feel it out
