Art of Dying Announce New EP, Release New Track ‘Torn Down’
After releasing the studio album Rise Up in December of last year, Canadian rockers Art of Dying will be unleashing the six-song EP Nevermore digitally on Sept. 2. Check out the lyric video for the new track "Torn Down" above.
"'Torn Down' is about believing in yourself, plain and simple," says vocalist Jonny Hetherington. "Sometimes it's hard to dig deep and find your pilot light in the darkness, but it's there."
He continues, "I came across Amanda and Jonah's (Amanda Todd and Jonah Mowrey) stories on YouTube and they really affected me. In a way, they both inspired this song. Unfortunately we lost Amanda. I hope 'Torn Down' can be a beacon to those who find themselves at the end of their rope.”
Guitarist Tavis Stanley talks about the new EP, saying, "After wrapping up an extremely difficult record with David Bendeth (Bring Me The Horizon, Breaking Benjamin, Of Mice and Men), we have circled back to our roots on Nevermore, working with long time collaborator and producer Mark Holman."
“A lot of the lyrical content on this album is about overcoming adversity,” adds Hetherington. “About taking yourself beyond where you thought you could go… about stepping away from toxic relationships."
Art of Dying will be hitting the road for a headlining tour with Children 18:3 and Letters From the Fire beginning Aug. 31 in Halthorpe, Md. For ticket information, go here.
