Nov. 18 — Independent hard rock band As Within, So Without is offering audiences another preview of its new record.
The band premiered its new single, ‘Like The Wind‘ and its companion video Wednesday. song and its video are the second from the band’s forthcoming album, Salvation, which is scheduled for release Jan. 12. The band premiered the album’s lead single, ‘My Revelation‘ and its companion video last month.
The musical arrangement featured in ‘Like The Wind’ is stylistically similar to that of ‘My Revelation’ in that both songs boast a distinct metalcore style arrangement. At the same time though, ‘Like The Wind’ presents more similarity to works from the likes of Ice Nine Kills and As I Lay Dying while ‘My Revelation’ bears more influence from the likes of Killswitch Engage.
The lyrical theme featured in ‘Like The Wind’ focuses on the emotional and mental impact of a child from a broken home.
The band addressed that theme and the song’s video treatment in a prepared statement.
“Our new single ‘Like The Wind’ explores the feelings and trauma of one of your parents or parent figures leaving you at a young age,” the statement reads. “The lyrical content is very personal to some of the members of our band and the message of this song is something we’re very proud of.
The statement adds, “As for the music video we felt that the set/location needed to get across the point of a broken home and we feel like we crushed all of our goals with this song and music video.”
Expanding on the comments of the video, the video features the band performing its single in the setting of a home with a variety of video and editing effects. Along with that footage, the video also features a couple fighting and one of the couple leaving, the child sitting alone as the incident happens.
