This past Friday, Kentucky post-hardcore act Softspoken released a deluxe edition of their debut EP, Pathways. The deluxe edition contains eleven tracks for just $5, and can be currently purchased here via their Bandcamp.
The deluxe edition contains a brand new track called “How We Rise,” and we are happy to be exclusively premiering the new music video for it today. You can find the theatrical video above at the top of this post.
When asked about the song Sam Scheuer said, “Growing up I always felt like I had a target on my back. I was always too short, or too nice, too this, or too that – but never good enough. I felt like I attracted bad luck or was attracted to bad decisions, even when they were made from a place of goodness,” Softspoken vocalist Sam Scheuer shares, “I spent a long time paranoid of how I was judged, and afraid of staying in the same loop of bad decisions or bad luck. But I eventually changed my perception and realized that I could use my ‘curse’ as fuel to rise to a higher place. The message of ‘How We Rise’ comes from that: Take what others say, think, or do to put you down and use it to pull yourself up. Find other people who support you, support them in turn, and that’s how we rise together.”
