Rock band Kid Dad offered audiences the first preview of its new album In A Box this week.
The band debuted the video for the album’s lead single ‘A Prison Unseen‘ Thursday. The video crosses video of the band performing its new single with footage of people in various situations with blindfolds as they deal with different circumstances. The visuals are meant to illustrate the song’s lyrical theme of addressing mental health.
Front man Marius Vieth discussed the song’s lyrical theme and how it ties into the song’s video in a recent video.
“‘A Prison Unseen’ is about loss of control and a lack of self-restraint that can be invisible to the world around you,” he said. “The protagonist puts his threatened mental well-being over his physical body and embraces the possibility of an utter loss of his senses.”
The song’s musical arrangement will appeal to fans of the emo realm with its distinct guitar and drum approach and Vieth’s occasional wailing. It will appeal to fans of similar acts, such as Taking Back Sunday, Finch and The Get Up Kids.
In A Box is scheduled for release Aug. 21 through Long Branch Records.
