Rochester, New York-based, five piece metalcore band, Destroy//Create, are proud to release their new single and music video, “Hang On,” which is due to be released October 18, 2019. “Hang On” is the first release and part one of a two-part single and video series the band is set to release over the next two months. Both tracks were produced by distinguished metalcore guitarist, Justin Deblieck (Ice Nine Kills).
This visually stunning and captivating music video is directed by Josiahx (Ice Nine Kills, Sirens and Sailors, Like Moths To Flames) and tells the story of two intimate individuals, both struggling with similar situations; coping with depression, anxiety and past trauma that has manifested itself into a psychosis. As one character uses art as an outlet to express and
endure her pain, the other takes a more destructive path and turns to drugs and alcohol as a coping method. This video is Destroy//Create’s way of using their art as an opportunity to shed light on the issues of addiction and mental health, which are clearly prevalent in today’s society.
Destroy//Create was formed in 2016 by lead vocalist, Adrian Blackwell, guitarist, Jimmy Gardner, and drummer, Jeff Cole. Shortly after their inception, the trio added Mike Mccann on bass. After about a year of playing together, the 4-piece band decided to add Dylan Borrelli for another layer of guitar and for his abilities to aid in the songwriting process as well as on-stage performances. With the band’s energetic live performances and positive lyrics, Destroy//Create push to bridge together the old school and modern metalcore sound for everyone to enjoy.
Destroy//Create is looking forward to releasing part-two to this entrancing series. In the meantime, check out “Hang On,” and follow the band online:
