Vocalist Clinton Watts comments, “Georgia is a song about Innocence lost in an unwilling and ignorant way. This is the literal meaning of the song to me, but it has a broader platonic meaning; to which almost anyone can relate. Speaking up and moving on is the bigger message that we, as a band, want people to take from this song. Being afraid to speak up about injustices is just half the battle many face throughout their lives.”
He adds, “This song wrote itself, and was and always will be a release for me personally. The title Georgia is a name derived from 2 personal coinciding events in my life which I choose to keep between me and close friends, as I want the song to be relatable to anyone that’s had a tragic past. Coming to terms about one’s past is tough but seriously uplifting once shared with those closest to you. This song is encouragement for those who need the push and the ears to listen. If this song’s message helps only 1 person, then I know speaking up truly has merit. You should speak up and know you’ll be stronger for doing so. Don’t be afraid to share what haunts you. You will grow from this!”
Guitarist JP Sings explains, “Georgia has a very special place in all of our hearts. So, creating visuals that could carry the emotional weight of the song proved to be a back and forth amongst band members!”
“Having our music video premiered in the USA through Ghost Cult Magazine is super rad! We cannot Express how grateful we are for an opportunity to showcase our music to their market and fans. It’s definitely made our day! Thank you for supporting Rock, Metal, Punk, Hardcore and Indie music from around the world; and giving us a shot to showcase.”
