Disciples Of Verity Debuts ‘Lying To Myself’ Lyric Video

Hard rock super group Disciples of Verity is preparing to release its debut album Pragmatic Sanction this year.

In anticipation of the album’s release, the band debuted more new music from the record early this month.  The band debuted the lyric video for the song ‘Lying To Myself’ Dec. 27 through PureGrainAudio and Jan. 7 through its official YouTube channel.  The song features a guest appearance from Phil Demmel (Machine Head, Vio-lence) on lead guitar.

The arrangement at the center of ‘Lying To Myself’ is a melodic hard rock composition that likens itself to works from the likes of Sevendust and The Veer Union.  The song’s lyrical content seemingly focuses on a person dealing with an inner battle with him/her-self as a result of a conflict with someone else.

‘Lying To Myself’ is available to stream and download here.  The single is the second song to come from Pragmatic Sanction.  The band debuted the album’s lead single ‘Worthy‘ Aug. 22.  The song features a guest appearance by Jeff Loomis (Nevermore, Arch Enemy) on guitar.

Loomis and Demmel are just two of the big names who make guest appearances on Pragmatic Sanction.  The list of special guest musicians featured on the album includes, but is not limited to the likes of Morgan Rose (Sevendust), Tara McLeod (Kitty) and solo artist Joe Gareri.
