Revolution Saints has unveiled the video for its latest single.
The band debuted the video for its new single ‘Freedom’ Friday. The song is taken from the band’s forthcoming sophomore album Light in the Dark, which is currently scheduled to be released Oct. 13 via Frontiers Music Srl. Pre-orders are available now via Frontiers Records Srl, Amazon, iTunes and Google Play.
The song’s video is a hybrid presentation that mixes footage of the band’s live performances with lyrics and the song itself for an experience that stands solidly on its own merits. Musically speaking, the song throws back to the power rock compositions of the late 80s and early 90s from the likes of Def Leppard and so many others.
Drummer and singer Deen Castronovo said of the song’s lyrics that they were born during his recovery from addiction at the Betty Ford Clinic in June 2015.
“They’re just a powerful reminder of where my head and heart were at the time,” Castronovo said. “It was the last song that Doug [Aldrich], (producer/songwriter) Alessandro Del Vecchio and I wrote and recorded. The whole lyric came to me in about 10 minutes. When I was at Hazelden Betty Ford, we would journal after each day to reflect on what we were feeling throughout the day. At the end of each day, I’d written the words “FREEDOM, COMING MY WAY.” It was the first thing that hit me and thought it’d be a great chorus for a song. So when Doug brought the song idea in, his music just fit too perfectly. I moved some things around and the entire lyric fit into the song! It was totally effortless.”
“The inspiration came when Deen and I were listening to what we had so far for the record and we wanted to write something different that we hadn’t done yet,” Aldrich said. One day Deen sent me a MP3 of him jamming on guitar. There were a bunch of parts going and I thought, ‘how cool is that? Deeno C throwing down!!’ I can just see Deen jammin’ and I didn’t expect that. I picked up the guitar and tried to play some stuff in the same tempo with the vibe he had. Basically on accident, I found a riff that I thought could be OK. When we all got to Milano, me, Deen and Alessandro talked about some ideas. We started talking about a jungle beat type of song, and I remembered the riff. The three of us did a rough demo and sent it off for label approval. Jack’s bass is super creative and fresh. Alessandro’s keyboards and production are stunning, and I love how it turned out. The lyric is very inspirational. I’m so impressed with Deen on this record! Let’s go! Freedom for all!”
