About the track, Meade had this to say:
“Stoner Fantasy” is a grungy reflection of a carefree attitude. I love the deeper idea behind the chorus lyrics: ‘They wanna change me, they’re only lookin’ at the wrong thing.’ The song is filled with simple ideas that can pull different emotions out of different folks. The solo is hectically epic and the vocal register at the end is really challenging. It feels good to rip this one live.

More from Austin Meade:
Thanks to his metal and classic-rock-loving dad, Meade got to see bands like Judas Priest and he worshipped Whitesnake. In junior high, he related to the intense emo-rock of Paramore and Fall Out Boy, and the power of songwriters like John Mayer. Yet, with gratitude to plainspoken but deep heartland songwriters like Tom Petty, and cutting his teeth touring in the Texas and Oklahoma Red Dirt scene, Meade’s music overflows with wide-open soulfulness. He was a drummer for years, even teaching to pay the bills, but Meade found his true voice when he began playing guitar as a teen in his pastor father’s church. Those experiences lend both a gravitas and rebelliousness to Meade’s songs and self.

Now the frontman of his band and slinging guitar licks with expert precision, his music rolled out with two releases in 2014, his first EP Long Ways To Go followed by his first full-length album Chief Of The Sinners. His next EP Heartbreak Coming came in 2016 with a couple of singles to announce his commencement on the Texas Music Chart, followed by his second full-length album Waves in 2019. In 2021, Meade introduced his third LP Black Sheep including the hit tracks “Happier Alone,” “Cave In,” “Dopamine Drop,” and “Deja Vu.” Meade released his fourth LP Abstract Art Of An Unstable Mind in the Fall of 2022, further showcasing his ability to seamlessly blend genres into a groovy yet piercingly fresh sound of rock ‘n’ roll.
