“As a band, we have always strived to keep our operation moving forward and upward,” the band said. “So when we received word that we would be moving to Thriller, we were absolutely ecstatic.
“It’s always a good feeling to have people believe in the work you put into something, and this new signing was one of the loudest messages to us that there are people who truly believe in Dark Divine.”
The music video for “Drown” douses viewers in a cinematic storyline making for an anxious watch as water is used in a strategic way.
“We wanted the first music video of the new record to pack a visual punch. New makeup, bigger locations and more visual impact. As soon as our director Joey Durango sent over the treatment for this video, we knew that both he and the band were on the same page with what ‘Drown’ should look like,” the band said. “We are definitely proud of the quality of both the video and our performances in the video. We hope everyone enjoys the video as much as we enjoyed making it.”
“One can easily find themselves surrounded by the negative energy that they project. It then may be difficult to identify yourself as the one projecting that energy. It consumes you while it drowns you,” vocalist Anthony Martinez said. “There are many who are accustomed to denying their involvement in the negative and try to keep their head above water. Thus, turning a blind eye to the deep ocean of the situations that they had a hand in creating.”
“Drown” is from Dark Divine’s forthcoming debut LP coming later in 2023. This will be a follow-up to the band’s EP, “Halloweentown” (released via InVogue Records), which has garnered 4.5 million streams.
Dark Divine is touring in support of Until I Wake on its A Tour Inside My Head, alongside labelmates Catch Your Breath. Tickets are now available.
