Denver metalcore band, Under Auburn Skies have released the official music video for their single “Afraid.” The track, which features guest vocals from Ronnie Canizaro of Born Of Osiris is taken from the band’s second EP, Invention of Reasoning, which was released last year. Watch the video now below.
The band’s Oscar Morales said of the song, “Having Ronnie was very entertaining to say the least haha. When we originally sent him the lyrics and melody, he wasn’t a big fan of just copying the original melody of the pre-chorus so he gave it his own spin and it definitely helped make the lead up to the second chorus/solo a lot more climatic. It was also nice to just know that when I reached out to his manager, EJ Shannon, he originally told us that if Ronnie liked the song, he would do a feature, if not, then we wouldn’t hear back from them. So just knowing Ronnie liked the song was an exciting feeling; Considering I’ve been listening to them since the release of The New Reign, it was a little surreal to have someone like him be featured in one of our songs!”
He adds, “As far as the lyrics pertaining to the song Afraid; It gets some influence from the game series Resident Evil but also a general realization that the planet is collapsing and we as humans are too selfish to realize that and take any sort of a gathered effort to fix it. When so much is falling around us, we still have our personal agendas that tend to take priority over the well being of our planet and society.”
Keep an eye out for more from Under Auburn Skies this year, as the band works on a new record and plans to hit the road again this summer and fall.
