\'Thoughts and Prayers\' is the Nostalgic Alt-Rock and Pop Grunge We Want The Chad Sipes Stereo have been together for more than 10 years. Their alt-rock and pop-grunge sound is reminiscent of the 90's giving the listener a sense of nostalgia with every listen. Their new album, 'Thoughts and Prayers,' is a poignant one with a Weezer Energy and Green Day vibe.

'Thoughts and Prayers' is Chad Sipes way of confronting a taboo topic, though an important one to tackle. Based on the theme of the opioid crisis, 'Thoughts and Prayers' takes on every aspect of the relationship we as a society have with pills; everything from parenting styles in "Every Single Kid" and "Therapy" to addiction in "Relapse" and "New Prescription."

“It felt like the time to say something,” shares Chad. “With this album, I decided to explore a narrative about the opioid crisis we face here in America. I am by no means an expert—I don’t want anyone to feel bad about taking medication—but I see something dangerous and very widespread.”

Thoughts and Prayers is a career milestone album on many levels. Besides representing an ambitious artistic feat, the album showcases a band at the height of its powers 12 years in, and it’s a testament to the quartet’s longevity. Chad says: “I’m really proud of this record. We left no stone unturned, and made the album I've always wanted to make. I have never felt this way before, and I am so excited for people to hear it.”
