North Lewisburg, Ohio's very own I, Apollo have graced us with a brand new lyric video for their song "Surface," off their latest release, the Stranded EP.
Fresh off a tour in direct support of I Set My Friends On Fire, the self-proclaimed "Millennium Falcon of Metalcore" has collaborated with Corbin Thomas of wellcan media to bring this song, and the album work done by none other than the highly-respected Dan Mumford (A Day To Remember, Parkway Drive, Tear Out The Heart, The Devil Wears Prada, etc).
Check it out below!
"Surface" is wonderfully heavy from the get-go, with a rhythm that pummels listeners senseless followed by a dark, richly mournful chorus, showcasing vocalist Brendyn Moxley's versatility with aplomb. The lyrics of the song deal with the layers of the Governor, a character from the popular AMC show The Walking Dead. Through his evil deeds, he's brought upon himself an unimaginably terrible fate. The video attempts to depict the wide-reaching ideas relative to this evil. Moxley puts it very simply in saying "If you're a Walking Dead fan, the metaphors are strong in this one."
I, Apollo released the Stranded EP back in March, and can be purchased on iTunes and Amazon. The band has been active in supporting it ever since, and with more tours and material yet to be announced, now is as prime a time as any to follow these guys on their various social media so as to be prepared for their next moves. This summer has been very eventful for the band, and only big things are in store for them. As always, stay tuned for more menacing metalcore awesomeness!
