After the release of their debut album Full Blast Fuckery in 2013, Wilson signed to Razor & Tie back in February. A few months later they release their sophomore album Right To Rise, and today they release the music video for the title track which was directed in part by the well-bearded vocalist Chad Nicefield.
Said Wilson on the music video, which was shot in their hometown of Detroit, MI:
“When we wrote the song we wanted to tell a story about the area of the world we live in. After traveling so much the past few years we realize the magnifying glass that the media has put on Detroit has damaged not only our city’s image but more importantly our peoples’ image. We all struggle with life’s weight no matter where we live in this world…our peoples’ story is not unlike the millions of other people out there put against the wall daily, cast aside as underdogs and thought of as “already dead”. It’s through the struggle to survive in those conditions that we create our strengths.”
Wilson has been out with Trivium and Tremonti since September on the The HardDrive Live tour, which wraps up in a few days.
