Gears’ New Single Takes On Humans’ Hypocrisy With New Single

Independent hard rock band Gears is taking on humans’ hypocrisy as it relates to religion with its latest single.

The band debuted its new single, ‘So What‘ Feb. 25 along with the song’s companion lyric video through Skope Magazine. The video places the song’s lyrics over imagery of the band performing live as the song plays over.

The musical arrangement featured in Gears’ new single is a heavy nu-metal style work that lends itself stylistically to works from the likes of Skindred and Sevendust. The song was produced by Corey Lowery (Saint Asonia, Steromud, Stuck Mojo) and mastered by Paul Logus.

The lyrical theme that accompanies the fiery arrangement addresses the irony of people who claim to be so pious yet are the first to judge others.

Front man Trip Six addressed the song’s lyrical theme in a prepared statement.

“When we wrote ‘So What?’ two years ago, it was coming from my personal view on how religion has in many ways become its own sort of animal; overriding the concept of love, compassion, family,” he said. “How we’ve gone from loving one another to judging each other and even fighting them based on the religion one practices or doesn’t. Family should be the religion, not the other way around. Of course, anyone who listens to the track can interpret as they wish however, that’s my take.”

The debut of Gears’ new single comes less than four months after the band premiered its cover of Deftones’ hit song ‘Bored.’

Saint Asonia Debuts ‘Ghost’ Video

Hard rock super group Saint Asonia debuted the video for its single ‘Ghost‘ this week.

The band, which features in its lineup, Staind guitarist/co-founder Mike Mushok and Three Day Grace front man Adam Gontier, debuted the new fan-made video for the single. The song is featured in the band’s 2019 album Flawed Design.

One part lyric video, one part montage, and one pat music video, the production in whole lets the band’s fans show their appreciation for the song.

Gontier talked about the video’s creation in a recent interview.

“We invited our fans to show us what the song means to them and we wanted to work with them to create the visual to go along with it,” said Gontier. “I’ve actually never done something like this in the past. It’s been a great process, and the video turned out awesome.”

Gontier also addressed the lyrical theme featured in ‘Ghost.’

“It’s about losing someone in your life — whether it be to death, drugs, or sickness. It’s about trying to put the pieces back together after going through something unbearable,” he said. “Sonically, it’s got a different feel. It’s not just a straightforward song written around a specific riff. It’s probably one of my favorite songs we’ve ever written as a band.”

The song’s featured musical arrangement is a heavy, melodic hard rock composition that will appeal to fans of bands, such as Three Days Grace, Finger Eleven, and Breaking Benjamin.
