Speaking on the new single, The Midnight say, “Since we’ve begun touring, our music has continued to be influenced by communal, live experiences. This is something we’ve missed for the last two years. We wanted to write a song that was about having a collective experience with other people and singing something raw at the top of our lungs. This song, when you sing it together, becomes more than the sum of its parts The song started with the track idea for the verses, and Tyler had the lyrics which he had produced himself to a house track, but it wasn’t until we got the call and response chorus that the song took on the life of a metal anthem.”
“Change Your Heart Or Die” comes hot off the heels of an extensive tour across North America. The Midnight’s recent video for “Good In Red (Live)” featured a robust five-piece band, dazzling stage setup, and an impassioned vocal performance from Lyle filmed at multiple stops along the tour.
