,” which was directed by the band’s very own Oli Duncanson.
Watch it here.
The song is out now via Arising Empire.
“‘Alive’ is about acknowledging the demons we have experienced in our lives and actively changing our mindset to banish them to the past and move forward with a fresh outlook on life,” TCIO say. “As a band, we have experienced so much change in recent years that it has sometimes been difficult to remain focused on the path ahead.”
The band continues, “‘Alive’ was an opportunity to throw the rule book out of the window and redefine what we loved about making music and creative content as a band. We talked a lot about what made us fall in love with music in the first place and discussed records that made us feel something — anything from punishing metal records to ’90s pop classics, and everything in between. We set ourselves the challenge of combining elements from as many of these as possible into one track, set ourselves free from the restrictions of our past, and fully embrace the new era of THECITYISOURS.”
The group finishes, “We fully believe that everyone should be able to express themselves in whichever way they wish, regardless of race, gender, creed, sexuality, or any other labels society may try to place on us as. This song has enabled us to find our true selves. ‘Alive’ is an anthem of celebration, that you are perfect just as you are. ‘Alive’ is the re-birth of THECITYISOURS.”
