Hard rock band Dark Divine are revealing their crushing new track “Drown” today, accompanied by a cinematic music video. In addition, the band are announcing their signing to Thriller Records.
“As a band, we have always strived to keep our operation moving forward and upward. So, when we received word that we would be moving to Thriller, we were absolutely ecstatic.” The band goes on to say about signing to Thriller Records. “It’s always a good feeling to have people believe in the work you put into something, and this new signing was one of the loudest messages to us that there are people who truly believe in Dark Divine.”
“Drown” is a sensational track that hones in on Dark Divine’s ability to create the feeling of un-breathable tension. Draped in striking controlled screams that ascend into theatrical melodies which grip onto fans, taking the air out of the room for anyone who’s listening. The song’s music video douses viewers in a cinematic storyline making for an anxious watch as water is used in a strategic way.
“We wanted the first music video of the new record to pack a visual punch. New makeup, bigger locations, and more visual impact. As soon as our director Joey Durango sent over the treatment for this video, we knew that both he and the band were on the same page with what “Drown” should look like.” The band states regarding the new music video. “We are definitely proud of the quality of both the video and our performances in the video. We hope everyone enjoys the video as much as we enjoyed making it.”
“One can easily find themselves surrounded by the negative energy that they project. It then may be difficult to identify yourself as the one projecting that energy. It consumes you while it drowns you.” Lead Vocalist Anthony Martinez continues, “there are many who are accustomed to denying their involvement in the negative and try to keep their head above water. Thus, turning a blind eye to the deep ocean of the situations that they had a hand in creating.”
“Drown” can be found on Dark Divine forthcoming debut LP coming later in 2023. This will be a follow-up to the band’s EP, Halloweentown (released via InVogue Records) which garnered 4.5M streams.
