Jan. 21 — Independent hard rock band Ignescent is taking audiences back to the 90s with its new single and video.
The band premiered its new single, ‘Remnant‘ and its companion video Friday. The single is featured in the band’s forthcoming EP, Ascension, which is scheduled for release March 4. The song immediately takes audiences back to the late 90s and lends itself to comparison to works from Korn in its verses. The more melodic choruses meanwhile lend themselves to comparison to works from the likes of Evanescence. The duality of the whole makes for an interesting contrast that will engage and entertain audience.
The band said in a prepared statement, that despite the song’s heavy musical arrangement, its lyrical theme delivers a positive message.
“‘Remnant’ is about us being blessed beyond measure despite our failures and weaknesses and despite going through tragedy and hardships,” the statement reads. “It’s about perseverance and saying to the world even when we are brokenhearted and suffering we won’t give up and we will keep going,” vocalist Jennifer Benson says. “We will come up stronger despite adversity. It’s an encouragement to others to do the same and to not lose hope and to not give in to fear. I hope this song makes people feel inspired and to rock out!”
