Hard rock band Gears recently released the video for its new single.

The band debuted the video for ‘Tango Yankee’ on April 6 at tattoo.com.  The song features guest vocals from Sevendust front man Lajon Witherspoon. Witherspoon also took time to appear in the song’s companion video.

Gears drummer Jimmy Wooten said in a recent interview that the song is effectively a tribute to America’s military and emergency service personnel.

“With ‘Tango Yankee,’ we just really wanted to write something dedicated to several members of our families that have served in the military, law enforcement and first response,” Wooten said.  “We really wanted this to be special, so getting one of our favorite vocalists from one of our favorite bands was very exciting and made this track just that — special.  Lajon came in and absolutely crushed the track vocally.  I really love the way it turned out.  Trip [Six] — Gears front man — and LJ complimented each other so well. Put that together with Clint’s epic solo, and of course Corey [Lowery] at the helm, this really turned out something spectacular.  I believe that the thought behind the song is something that most Americans can relate to, as many of of have or have had loved ones who serve.  Maybe even a little something that can get us all past all of our political disagreements unify, recognize the sacrifice and just say a simple ‘Thank You’ to all those who fight for our freedom, protect us and keep us safe.”

GEARS Debuts ‘End This’ Lyric Video

Up-and-coming hard rock outfit GEARS unveiled its latest video this week.

The Florida-based hard rock act unveiled the lyric video for its song ‘End This.’  The video is the third from the band’s new EP Pride Comes Before The Fall. It follows the release of the videos for the critically acclaimed ‘Face Down’ and ‘Take Away.’  Both songs also are included in the band’s new EP.  The video, crafted by Cody Doyle of CB Entertainment, is meant to illustrate the song’s content, which focuses on the unrest brought across America in recent months by the killing of young Black men by police officers.  As drummer Jimmy Wooten explains, “People have strong opinions and beliefs regarding violence in our streets, more specifically concentrated around police brutality.  ‘End This,’ lyrically, is a look into both sides of it, the police that we put our trust in to make difficult decisions in a split second and the victims of the brutality, who could be on either side.  In the middle, we have the media.  Depending on which news source you’re getting your news from, will decide which political agenda you’re being fed.  We need to stop letting the media influence us to perpetuate the war of any racial or political agenda.  Simply put, we need to END THIS.”

The new video outlines that belief as it sets the song’s lyrics against footage of the violence that has ravaged America as a result of those killings.  The footage in question is placed inside different newspapers, whose names are directly put out there as part of the video.  Their names are used to illustrate the impact of the media and its biases.

Pride Comes Before The Fall was written by Corey Lowery (Stuck Mojo, Stereomud, Dark New Day) and GEARS.  The record was also mixed and engineered by Lowery.  It was mastered by Rodney Mills Masterhouse.  More information on GEARS’ new video and EP is available online now along with all of the band’s latest news at:
