The second track the world gets to hear off Jacob Bannon's upcoming album under his Wear Your Wounds project is the opening self-titled track which possesses every quality needed to win you over from the first listen.
Wear Your Wounds' debut album is created by a band comprised of guest musicians Kurt Ballou (Converge), Mike McKenzie (The Red Chord, Stomach Earth, Unraveller), Chris Maggio (Sleigh Bells, Trap Them, Coliseum), and Sean Martin (Hatebreed, Cage, Kid Cudi, Twitching Tongues), who alongside Bannon are all pushing their creative limits several steps forward. For this album the band cites among its influences the likes of Pink Floyd, Swans, The Cure, as well as some a little more unexpected choices like Sparklehorse and Songs: Ohia.
Jacob Bannon had to say about the following song and its new video: "The song is about the psychological effects of negative experiences, and ultimately not allowing them to define who you are and wish to be. I feel that most people can likely relate to that message in some way. The video is a recreation of the album cover and other visuals in the album. The character creates a ladder to ascend to the sky. Looking for answers, hoping for a metaphorical confrontation in some way. The character also wears a mirror, being a literal reflection of the world that surrounds."
The video was directed by one of the best, Max Moore. Play it below...
