Owls & Aliens Addresses Self-Defeatism With New Single

Aug. 13 — Independent hard rock band Owls & Aliens wants its audiences to take the weight of the world from their shoulders.

The band delivers that message through its new single, ‘You Can’t Save Everyone.’ The band premiered its new single, Thursday through v13.net. Its premiere comes more than a year after the premiere of the band’s then latest single, ‘Mercy.’

The musical arrangement featured in ‘You Can’t Save Everyone’ is an up-tempo metalcore style composition. The guitars against the balance of screams and clean vocals makes the work comparable to songs from the likes of Underoath.

According to vocalist Dustin Carter, the song’s lyrical theme is a reminder that people cannot blame themselves for others’ failures.

“You see such beauty, potential, and value in a person and they don’t see it in themselves,” said Carter. “A situation where you’ve drained yourself attempting to lift someone up who isn’t yet willing to try. A breaking point to let them sink or swim. You’ve done all you can. So try not to beat yourself up about it.”

That theme was expanded on by a prepared statement from the band, explaining the song’s background.

“This song hits us heavy in our hearts as we shot this music video the day after our drummer’s mom was diagnosed with advanced Stage IV cancer and on that actual day she had emergency surgery to save her life,” the statement reads. “We almost didn’t shoot the video, but mom was adamant that we do it while we had the opportunity. Shortly thereafter, Dustin’s father was also diagnosed with cancer. This song is dedicated to both of them and everyone else battling cancer and goes out to anyone that understands the hopeless feeling of not being able to save someone you love.”
