Trapt, ‘Living in the Eye of the Storm’ – Exclusive Video Premiere
Trapt are back with a brand new album, 'Reborn,' and Loudwire is proud to team up with the band to premiere the video for their new single 'Living in the Eye of the Storm' (watch below).
Led by frontman Chris Taylor Brown, Trapt have been going strong for more than 15 years, hitting it big with their mammoth single 'Headstrong' in 2002. Now, with 'Reborn,' Trapt are heating radio up with the first single 'Bring It,' and hope to do the same with 'Living in the Eye of the Storm,' and powerful track that deals with inner turmoil.
"When I wrote the lyrics to this song, I was going through a lot of hardships, personal struggles, and it was affecting the way I was treating other people and myself," Brown tells us. "I remember looking around at what was going on in the world and thinking that there must be a lot of other people going through some of the same inner battles that I was. There are a lot that we take for granted that we really only notice when things are falling apart. It puts things in perspective, when you are sitting there in the eye of the storm, where it's calm, but everything around you is coming apart at the seams. It was hard to want to venture out and do what I needed to do. But, in the end, through writing songs like these, it helped me see what was happening in my life and it helped me turn a few things around that needed fixing. I'm hoping this song does that for a few more people."
The video, which is has a military theme, pays tribute to the members of the Armed Forces who fight to defend their country. Brown explains, "For the video, I wanted to really give a shout out to the armed forces. Those people are out protecting freedom at the expense of their lives and their families lives, far away from home, so that we can sleep soundly at night. I respect that so much. I think a lot of people take their freedom for granted and I also think there are a lot of people that don't live in a free world, like the one we live in and hate seeing the kind of freedom that we have. I just wanted to show a little appreciation for the sacrifice that our armed forces take part in to keep those enemies at bay."
