Watch: Blessthefall go under in new ‘Wishful Sinking’ video

Blessthefall are back with a brand new music video for their latest single. On Wednesday (Oct. 10), the Phoenix-founded band unleashed the second music video for “Wishful Sinking.” Originally released in February with a different corresponding visual, the new clip finds inspiration from the song’s subject matter and lyrics which make references to drowning and getting caught in the undertow.

The four-and-a-half-minute clip primarily features the band in what looks to be a small and dark room filled with water. As the group begins to play the track in the confined space, the water begins to rise submerging the band members, and their instruments, throughout the video. At one point, each member is seen briefly under the purple current or throwing themselves into the purple abyss.

“Wishful Sinking” is the band’s first song to be written with the help of the record’s producer, Tyler Smyth. The track is featured on Blessthefall’s recently released record, Hard Feelings. Hard Feelings was released in March via Rise Records. The album, the band’s sixth studio album, peaked at the No. 54 spot on the Billboard 200 chart and at the No. 5 spot on Billboard’s Top Alternative Albums chart.

Hard Feelings is the act’s last album to feature longtime drummer Matt Traynor. Traynor announced his departure from the band in August of 2018, citing family as his main reason for leaving the band he had been a part of since its inception. Traynor made his departure official following the group’s Hard Feelings headlining tour with The Word Alive.

Blessthefall unleash video for new single ‘Wishful Sinking’

Several weeks after confirming a new album with its first single, Blessthefall have returned with another new song from the record. On Wednesday (Feb. 14), the Arizona-founded band unleashed “Wishful Sinking,” the second single off their upcoming album, Hard Feelings.

“‘Wishful Sinking’ is one of the first songs we wrote for this album,” frontman Beau Bokan explains about the new song. “It’s got all the familiar Blessthefall vibes that any old school fan will recognize immediately. We wanted to do what we do best while finding a fresh sound. I think it’s one of the more dynamic songs vocally and musically. It takes you on a ride that ignites the whole album.”

“Wishful Sinking” will join previously released single “Melodramatic” on the band’s impending new album, Hard Feelings. Hard Feelings is set to be released on March 23 through Rise Records. Pre-orders for the new album can be found on the band’s website.

Last month, Blessthefall confirmed the release of their sixth studio album as well as their decision to leave their longtime home of Fearless Records for Rise Records. According to an interview back in January, Bokan admitted that signing with Rise Records helped rejuvenate the band that has been in the music business for nine years and five studio albums.

In support of the new album’s release, Blessthefall are currently on tour with Of Mice and Men, Cane Hill, and Fire from the Gods. Tonight, the bands will perform at the Corona Theatre in Montreal, Quebec. The complete list of remaining tour dates can be found here.
