New Live video of Hold On from The Brevet captures a depth of emotion and spirit

July 28, 2016

  The Brevet have released a one take Live Video of them performing their track Hold On acoustically and it is a musical gem. Aric Chase Damn comments about the song, “I wrote this when trying to figure out if I still wanted to pursue this career. There is a line in it that says ‘Hold on to me’ and most people assume that’s meant in a romantic way. It’s meant to mean hold on to the pieces that make you you and don’t get swayed by all of the other distractions.” We have all had those moments where we re-evaluate where we are and what we are doing and this song captures the vulnerability of those moments and how it brings clarity through the emotional connection. It is a beautiful track with lyrics that draw you and lift your spirit. Check out the video here: Damn comments in the interview with Pop Matters, “It’s funny. We had actually planned for a entirely different video with our director and good friend Sarah Wilson Thacker. It was suppose [Read More]

Their album The Rising might have had them break new ground but their latest release, Voices has given them the attention that they truly deserve. The EP is produced & co-written by Drowning Pool drummer Mike Luce (with the exception of “You’re Nothing” which was co-written with Luce and Ill Nino guitarist Ahrue Luster). Frontman Matthew Whiteman comments,  “Voices consists of the best music we have created as a band. We did so many different things in the studio that altered the RTR sound this time around. One of them was the vocal effects. We were able to capture a very heavy machine like vocal tone that adds another layer to the sound.”  Red Tide Rising are setting out on tour with Sevendust and Crobot.
