“The song was inspired by life,” said Nokio. “Everyone will probably take something different away from it but overall it’s about wanting to get back to that perfect place in life.”
Describing the song as “new metal soul” because of its eclectic, hard-hitting grooves and soulful melodic vocals and harmonies, Black Angel Down attributes its unique sound to its diverse music lineup, which also features a special guest appearance by Tao of Dru Hill.
“The creative energy and professionalism of this band is way beyond anything I’ve been involved in before,” said co-founder and bassist Kevin Baker. “That’s why we can’t wait to perform our new material for our fans.”
