Friday, November 17, 2023 – Wind Walkers, the genre-defying visionaries, are thrilled to announce the release of their groundbreaking album “What If I Break?”. Continuing to break boundaries and forge their own path in the alternative music scene, Wind Walkers have swiftly gained acclaim, with “What If I Break?” emerging as one of the standout albums of the year. Fans can stream the recent release HERE.
The album release is accompanied by the release of their latest single “The Overlook”. With the incendiary new single, Wind Walkers unleash a sonic inferno through its fiery composition that encapsulates the band’s artistic fervor. Fans can watch “The Overlook” HERE or at the link below.
Speaking on today’s single release, vocalist Trevor Borg shares:
“This song is a bit different than the others on the album in the sense that I didn’t necessarily write the lyrics from personal experience. I’ve always wanted to challenge myself and write a song about a story I loved, and if the name isn’t a dead give away, I wrote this song about my favorite novel “The Shining”. The overlook is about the character Jack and his struggles to be a better version of himself and provide for his family. All while facing consequences of past mistakes as well as battling his vices, and literal possession from spirits in a haunted hotel.”
Lifting the curtain behind the record, Trevor continues:
“Lyrically, What if I Break is a very introspective album. I wrote about very real experiences in my life these past few years. This album touches on love and death, connections with others as well as connections with myself. And the pressures that I felt trying to maintain those connections while chasing a dream I’ve had since childhood. These songs are on the verge of being uncomfortably honest, and I couldn’t imagine doing it any other way.”
Authenticity is the heartbeat of “What If I Break?”, as it dives into the depths of human experience, navigating themes of love, loss, and self-discovery. Seamlessly blending powerful instrumentals with hauntingly honest vocals, each track unfolds as a compelling narrative that showcases a spectrum of raw emotions and cathartic expression. With this latest release, Wind Walkers have made their triumphant return, claiming their status as dynamic trailblazers.
“What If I Break?”, produced by the highly regarded Nick Matzkows (known for his work with Attack Attack, Until I Wake, Conquer Divide) and revered Jon Eberhard (I Prevail, Skillet, The Ghost Inside), promises to redefine the boundaries of post-hardcore and alternative metal. With their daring approach, Wind Walkers effortlessly blend the commanding force of modern metal with the irresistible charisma of pop, crafting a sound that is both emotionally charged and undeniably catchy.
