Famous Last Words recently released a lyric video for their new single “The Judged.” The single is off of their sophomore record, The Incubus, which is due out on September 30th!
Not to mention, last month they released another single for that album entitled “Pretty in Porcelain.” This record deals with a difficult subject matter according to Vocalist JT Tollas, “All of our full length albums have told stories that tackle extremely difficult situations. The Incubus tackles the issue of sexual and domestic abuse. I felt it was important to step forward really bring this relentless issue to light”
Check out the video below!
In the video, the band introduces us to the main character of their story, Christine. Christine is a stay-at-home “Susie Homemaker” of the 1950’s She is trying to determine why she is having constant blackouts and horrible nightmares. This all happening while trying to still care for her family. According to the group, Christine represents anyone who has ever been abused and the story depicts problems we still have in our society today.
This is a very interesting topic with two powerful singles that pick apart their subject matter and really dive into it. This is a problem we deal with in our society and Famous Last Words has taken the torch on the issue. Music and change can come hand in hand, just ask Joan Baez. Please check out this single and even give the whole record a listen. I’m sure you will walk away a better person.
