SINK THE SHIP have exclusively partnered with www.bringthenoise.com to debut the new music video for “Nail Biter.” The band‘s debut offering, Persevere, is out now via SharpTone Records – you can pick it up or stream here!: https://fanlink.to/SinkTheShip
Colton Ulery (vocals) states: “This is my favourite song on the record, because it‘s so personal. I‘ve lived with depression and anxiety as far back as I can remember. To me there‘s like no rhyme or reason to it (the mental illness). My brain is just defective or something in the ‘happy department,’ haha.
I was questioning to myself whether or not I‘d write about mental health on this record. Then something compelled me to just put it all out there. I‘m glad I did. Mental health is such a big deal in this world, but it‘s one of those topics that humans, for whatever reason feel, that they need to bury within themselves.
We‘re all not okay. We all have problems. Accepting it is just the first step and from there, life if all about sorting yourself out and keeping yourself together.”
SINK THE SHIP erupted into the underground heavy music scene with their energetic, bold and bright post-hardcore and pop-punk infused blend of metalcore in 2012—and since then, they’ve been sailing stronger and stronger with each passing year. Within two years’ time, the band would release their debut effort, Reflections, a riveting—albeit rough around the edges—EP that spoke volumes to the band’s dedication to creating music true to themselves and worth its weight in powerful, emotive passion. With tales of adversity, animosity and inspiration aplenty, SINK THE SHIP are a prominent, powerhouse of a band making monstrous waves in the coming year.
