REVOLVER What’s this song about?
BEAU BOKAN This song is us saying that we’re here to stay. Some people have been saying “Blessthefall is back!”… but the truth is we’ve never gone anywhere. It’s our battle hymn.
Which part of it did you come up with first? And what was the inspiration?
I had the line “We are the promised ones” written in my phone for a while and I just built off of that. My inspiration was the battle that we go through in our lives; the battle to stay relevant and the battle to be one of the best bands in music today.
“We are the promised ones”这句话写在我手机里已经挺久了所以就直接用了。我的灵感来自我们生活中的各种斗争；让乐队保持有意义的斗争，以及成为现在最棒乐队的斗争。
Was this an easy song to write or record?
Once I sat down with the music and started writing the lyrics and melody it came very, very quickly, and I was stoked on all my ideas. There were a few high harmonies to sing in the song, but I think I nailed ‘em. [Laughs]
What sort of feedback have you gotten on this song so far?
We put out a 30-second clip of this song not too long ago and kids are freaking out. Makes us feel really good that they are stoked on new material. They’ll be blown away by the full track!
