Aug. 5 — The wait for the new single and video from A Killer’s Confession is over.
The band premiered its new song, ‘Tell Your Soul‘ and its video late Thursday night, more than a week after the announcement was made that the two were coming. The single features guest vocals from Chad Gray (Hellyeah, Mudvayne) alongside front man Waylon Reavis.
The musical arrangement featured in ‘Tell Your Soul’ is a melodic hard rock composition. The juxtaposition of the deeply contemplative mood in the song’s verses and more fiery approach to its chorus creates plenty of appeal.
Reavis spoke positively of the new single and collaboration during a recent interview.
“This song was an amazing collaboration between Sahaj Ticotin (Ra), Chad Gray, and myself,” said Reavis. “It was an honor to work with such true professional artists on such a powerful song. I hope everyone can feel the raw emotion and are moved just like I am when they listen.”
Gray shared Reavis’ appreciation for the song and its video.
“Waylon has wanted to do a song with me for a very long time, and earlier this year, we tried, but the song just didn’t fit either one of us,” he said. “So we went back to the drawing board with Sahaj Ticotin. The song really spoke to me, so we went for it. Everything just seems to fall into place. I’m really excited about this release.”
Added Gray, “My boy Wombat absolutely killed the video. I’m stoked for this song to drop. It’s a nice prelude to some more solo stuff I have on the way. I can’t wait for you all to hear this. Enjoy.”
Gray’s collaboration with AKC is just his latest. He worked with fellow rocker Hyro The Hero last year on his song, ‘Fight.’
The lyrical theme featured in the song matches that contemplative nature. Reavis talked about the song’s lyrical theme during the noted interview.
“This song is about forgiveness and acceptance of one’s own shortcomings,” he said. “I want to thank Chad and Sahaj for being such great friends and recording this song with me. Wombat absolutely crushed this video. Amazing talent all the way around!”
The video for ‘Tell Your Soul’ presents Reavis and Gray in dimly lit home settings as they perform their respective parts to the song. Meanwhile, the song plays over while footage of an unidentified figure in a sheet is occasionally shown dancing as if it was a spirit.
‘Tell Your Soul’ and its video, are just the latest from the band’s forthcoming album, Remember. The album’s release date is under consideration. The album produced the single, ‘Trapped Inside‘ and its companion video April 29. The premiere of the song and its video came less than a month after the premiere of AKC’s then latest single, ‘Light to Darkness‘ and its video.
