"Already Dead", the new video from kings of Pennsylvania hardcore WISDOM IN CHAINS, can be seen below. The song is taken from the band's seventh studio album, "Nothing In Nature Respects Weakness", which will be available worldwide on July 20 via Fast Break! Records. The disc was recorded, mixed, and mastered by Rich Rescigno at Mountain Side Studio in Tobyhanna, Pennsylvania.
"The album title 'Nothing In Nature Respects Weakness' was taken from a piece of advice given to me by an older family member of mine," explains vocalist Mad Joe Black. "It's a reminder that when you feel like giving up, you have to keep pushing forward. Nature will not pity you. Life will not pity you. So, make yourself so you can fight through the inevitable struggles. As a band, we've dealt with personal struggles over the last few years and even currently. It's definitely embedded in the music and lyrics on this album."
WISDOM IN CHAINS' music is powerful, but the band's message is even more powerful. These 13 hard-hitting hardcore anthems shed light on current social issues including fear ("The Boy And The Cave"), violence ("Duck Down Stay Down"), empowerment ("Life Lessons"), depression ("Better Than I Was"), suicide ("Palisades Cliff"), substance abuse ("Truce"), personal boundaries ("Ultimatum"), and being consumed by technology ("Slow Drown"). In addition, MADBALL's Freddy Cricien splits vocal duties on the track "Someday" and Davin Bernard of KINGDOM breaks out a vicious verse attack on "Slow Drown".
