Hard rock super group Firstborne debuted the video for its latest single this week.

The band debuted the lyric video for its new single ‘Cut The Strings‘ Monday. The song is the latest single from the band’s self-titled EP, which was released this spring. The band debuted the record’s lead single ‘Roll The Dice‘ and its lyric video in August.

The video places the song’s lyrics over an ever-changing backdrop that uses imagery, such as a chess board, a burning city, and a skeleton dressed in a tuxedo and connected to strings like a puppet. Meanwhile, the song plays over the video, whose visualizations are used to help illustrate the message in the song’s lyrical content.

Front man Girish Pradham addressed the song’s lyrical message in a prepared statement.

“Every time there’s a force that challenges the most fundamental right of a human being – Freedom – music has always served as the voice of the common person,” he said.  “The special existence of humans in the world has music right in the heart of it.”

The musical arrangement that accompanies the song’s straight forward commentary in its lyrical content will appeal to a wide range of listeners. Its guitar arrangement harkens back to the rock sounds of the late 80s and early 90s. The time keeping from Chris Adler (ex-Lamb of God) is xpertly handled while bassist James LoMenzo adds his own touch to the song.

FirstBorne Encourages Listeners To Seize The Day With Its New Single, Video

Hard rock super group Firstborne debuted the video for its latest single over the weekend.

The band — Chris Adler (ex-Lamb of God), James LoMenzo (ex-Megadeth), Girish Pradhan (Girish and the Chronicles), and “Myrone” — debuted the lyric video for its new single ‘Roll The Dice‘ Friday.  The song is featured in the band’s debut self-titled EP, which was released this past Spring.

The video incorporates the song’s lyrics into a series of visual effects while the song plays over the video.  Because the imagery flashes very quickly throughout, those who are susceptible to seizures are cautioned against watching the video, but only listening to the song.

The song’s musical arrangement is certain to appeal to a wide range of listeners.  It crosses a punk element with a straight-forward guitar rock approach for a distinct whole.  Adler’s time keeping is simple here, but that is a good thing.  It shows that he is just as talented in keeping standard time as he is with more complex polyrhythmic patterns.

LoMenzo’s work on bass works well with Adler’s time keeping to flesh out the song’s rhythm section.  Meanwhile “Myrone” shines on guitar  while Pradhan’s vocals are sharp and tight in their own way.

Adler talked about the song’s musical arrangement in a recent interview.

“’Roll the Dice’ shows Firstborne turning another unexpected turn musically that I could not have done before,” said Adler. “It’s the perfect song to drive fast with the windows down air drumming on your wheel.”

Additionally, Adler addressed the song’s lyrical theme during his interview.

“Somewhat ironically, it speaks to how those memorable moments can turn to tragedy,” he said. “We only go around this thing once and as Elvis Costello — and, bizarrely, the Meatmen — best said it back in the day, ‘Accidents will happen, you don’t know when, accidents are waiting around the bend.’ Enjoy what you have left.”

LoMenzo added to Adler’s statement, noting, “‘Roll The Dice’ is an energetic snapshot of what Firstborne is all about,” he said. “Shutting out self-doubt, shutting down fear and just going for it!”
