Providence, RI quintet, Kingsmen, have dropped bombastic new single and accompanying music video – “Trial By Fire” today via Sharptone Records. Exhibiting a slight stylistic shift from the band’s previous output, the new track exhibits arena-conquering riffing and a phenomenally catchy-but-powerful vocal, courtesy of the clean stylings of frontman Tanner Guimond.
Speaking on “Trial By Fire”, Kingsmen frontman Tanner Guimond shares:
“Trial By Fire” was created after we took a full band trip to Gettysburg the day before entering the studio. In December 2020, the world and especially our country seemed extremely divided and tense. Learning about our history and understanding what our past generations of brave men and women endured gave us hope for our future. With that hope, we had an idea. We wanted to create a son that speaks about tension and how tough times can lead to a better future if we can all find a way to come together.
“The music video is full of colors of Red & Blue. We did this to subconsciously highlight that no matter what side of the political/social o economic spectrum you belong to; we all need to merge and come together to create a better future.”
