To celebrate the upcoming release of Hard Feelings, due out March 23rd via Rise Records, Bless The Fall have released two new music videos: “Wishful Sinking” (02/15) and “Melodramatic” (01/29). Fans can preorder the album here. Band members include Beau Bokan (vocals), Jared Warth (bass & additional vocals), Eric Lambert (lead guitar), and Elliot Gruenberg (guitar).
“Wishful Sinking” shatters records as Bless The Fall’s latest music video produced by Rise. Embarking on the album artwork elements of lucid pinks and blues, inter-dimensional travel is quickly induced throughout the metalcore tempo of the lyrics and music. Abstract compositions of geometric fractals, glitched neon lights, lush plants, and striking tarantulas are contrasted by concert live performance imagery shot by cinematographer Michael Iwamoto.
My favorite drop is right around @3:30MIN; a furied, “I’m dying to let you know; They’re coming for you,” blends into the lyrics, “You’re the shore, I’m the tidal wave; I’m the reason you’re coming up for air; holding on to a memory. You can blame it on wishful sinking. I’d try to save you. But what were you thinking.”
Their first single and MV off Hard Feelings originated with “Melodramatic;” this specific music video was directed by Brendan Barone & Sam Shapiro. Visually, Bless The Fall performs in an abandoned warehouse lit by low-hanging neon bulbs glowing intermittently in red and blue. The room is constantly warped by geometric glitches tracked to the beat of the music. I’m a fan of the emotional delivery of the lyrics, “ If you wanted a war; I guess you got what you came for,” and the stricter delivery of, “You’ll try and you’ll fail; I’ll be the one that prevails.”
Shortly after the debut of Hard Feelings, Bless The Fall, will open for the Black Veil Brides and Asking Alexandria on the Resurrection Tour commencing on April 28th (Jacksonville, FL) until May 19th (Columbus, Ohio).
Ben Bruce of Asking Alexandria anticipates this to be “the greatest tour of the year” and “can’t wait to see you all,” According to LoudWire.
Additionally, Bless The Fall will headline a 2018 European Tour starting June 8th at the Download Festival in Donnington, U.K. until their closing act on June 20th at the Vainstream RockFest in Münster, Germany.
