Keighley natives As Sirens Fall are delighted to announce their first new single in almost a year, and they’ve enlisted the help of a very special guest to join them. “In My Mind” will feature the vocal talents of Skindred frontman Benji Webbe, who is an old friend of the band. Benji’s help was enlisted by As Sirens Fall guitarist Adam Doveston to help them produce a truly special track, and In My Mind is the result. The song is an anthem for the disillusioned, metaphorically standing up for those in society who need the help most, whether from depression, illness or the struggles of every day life.
“This is actually an older song of ours. When we got together to begin writing together after THE HOSPITAL PARTY, we dug this old thing back up and brought it back to life. I’m so glad we did.”
“The video is absolute insanity. I cannot believe we pulled something like this off.”
“We shot enough footage to make a short film. Fitting this into a 4 minute music video was an absolute nightmare. I can’t wait to see what people think of what we’ve been up to.”
“It was awesome working with Benji. He’s super friendly and professional and when he added his vocal parts in, he helped us bring this song to life. His presence in the video is amazing. The guy is a rock n roll machine.”
“We wanted to represent how hard it is for people to talk about mental health, and not only that it is hard – but that people are often pushed into not acknowledging it at all.”
“It’s been a hard year for the people in this band, but it feels really good to come back with something that we’re all so proud of and excited about.”
“We left the black and whites of THE HOSPITAL PARTY behind. We decided to introduce way more colour into the whole image of the band. It felt like a step forward.”
In My Mind will be released on all Download and Streaming platforms on the 17th of November. A music video for the track will also be revealed in the coming weeks.
