Hard rock super group Saint Asonia premiered the video for its latest single this week.
The band debuted the video for its new single, ‘Devastate‘ Thursday. The single is the third from the band’s EP, Extrovert, which was released last year through Spinefarm Records. The record also produced the singles, ‘Above It All‘ and ‘Blinding Lights.’
The video for the band’s new single is a relatively straight forward presentation. It features the band performing its new single on a sound stage. The soundstage is dressed up to look like a live stage setting, so as to reflect what the band looks like on stage.
The musical arrangement featured in the band’s new single is a heavy, thick melodic hard rock composition. The overall instrumentation creates a sound and style that is easily comparable to works from the likes of The Veer Union, Otherwise, and A Killer’s Confession. The addition of front man Adam Gontier’s vocals adds in the comparison to work from his past band, Three Days Grace. The whole is a sound and style that will fully engage and entertain audiences.
The lyrical theme that accompanies the song is a commentary about the self destructive people that make life miserable for themselves and others around them.
Gontier talked about the theme in a prepared statement.
“It’s a song I wrote about those people in our lives that always seem to leave a trail of destruction behind them,” Gontier said. “I feel like we’ve all got, or had, someone in our lives that was just evil. Not caring about anything but themselves, and turning everything they touch into darkness. ‘Devastate’ is about that.”
