There has been no escaping Foreign Pain this week in the build up to the release of their debut album “Death Of Divinity” via Good Fight Records with the band unveiling a trio of inside the lyrics videos and so it should come as no surprise that the band who feature in their ranks former The Ghost Inside guitarist Aaron Brooks have dropped a music video for “South Of Life” from the album to celebrate it’s release day.
On “South of Life”, vocalist Andrew Doyle had this to say: “This song was one of the earliest we wrote as a band, and I would argue probably the heaviest. There wasn’t really a doubt in my mind that it would end up as the last song on the record even though we liked to throw it on the front end of sets when we first wrote it. ‘South of Life’ was written about the chaos and trauma of physical, mental, and sexual abuse, and the cyclical nature of that abuse. Witnessing the events at the center of this song is what encouraged me to get myself into therapy to address some of my own demons, something I’m a big advocate for. People fear tearing open these old wounds to let them heal the proper way, and I think that fear can turn us into people we never thought we could be.”
