Progressive metalcore head-turners INVENT ANIMATE — vocalist Marcus Vik, guitarists Keaton Goldwire and Trey Celaya, drummer Brody Smith, and bassist Caleb Sherraden — released their head-turning fourth album HEAVENER earlier this year via UNFD.

Today, they have shared the visually arresting video for a track of the same name, which does not appear on the original release. The video demands multiple viewings, as it is full of fast-moving, somewhat blurred visuals — offering up a different perspective every time you watch it.

This song has beautiful, shimmering qualities, which show off the band’s deftness with dynamics. It was written as a continuation of the album Heavener, with the intention to encompass the entire feeling of the album.

“In a time of internal panic, having a person that constantly reminds you that they have a place of home, can be crucial when trying to bring someone down to earth again,” states Vik. “The song ‘Heavener’ is about reassurance, it’s about trying to convince your closest person that you see and hear them in their internal and helpless drift.  A lot of love and pain goes into the work of showing the one closest to you that only they can create their own internal heaven, as they are their own ‘Heavener.'”

Goldwire furthers, “We actually had a few ‘B sides’ sitting around but we’re really stubborn in thinking that the next thing we write will always be better than the thing before. Caleb had the idea to make a song titled ‘Heavener’ after the record was done and I got to work trying to make a song that seemed like it encompassed the feeling of the album as a whole. Going into the lyrics, Marcus, too, wrote a song that defined Heavener for him, since it’s not necessarily one idea or thing. We wanted to try our best to wrap everything up into one song as a sort of ‘end credits,’ so to speak.”
