De Amerikaanse melodic hardcore band Koyo heeft een video uitgebracht voor de single “Life’s A Pill”, afkomstig van het debuutalbum “Would You Miss It” dat op 29 september uitkomt via Pure Noise Records.
Zanger Joey Chiaramonte zegt het volgende over het nummer en de video:
Life’s A Pill’ is a model Koyo song. TJ had written that song around the Drives Out East era of the band. I remember recording vocals for a demo version of the song with the help of Marissa from Fleshwater when I was staying in Lowell, MA for a bit, and just feeling something unexplainably cathartic when I had finished laying it out. This song was written about the passing of a family member while I was on my first full US tour, and the ways in which I struggled with that.
Because of the heavy subject matter, I was a little intimidated in terms of how to approach the video. The incredibly talented Eric Richter would be the perfect fit to help create a video that looks how I felt. Narrative took a bit of a back seat as we just wanted to create something abstract. Something visually stunning, yet hard to look at. Haunting, but not scary, and I think he absolutely aced it. Grateful for his talent and friendship, Eric is an inspiring individual.
Koyo live zien kan dit jaar samen met Stick To Your Guns, Get The Shot en End It in onder andere op 4 december in TivoliVredenburg in Utrecht (NL) en op 6 december in Vooruit in Gent (BE).
