Yorkshire's As Sirens Fall have just released a cinematic masterpiece for their new single, 'We Go Down Together'.
‘We Go Down Together’ is an introduction to a new chapter for As Sirens Fall. With ‘The Hospital Party’ and ‘Where Lost Things Go’ EPs behind them, the band are moving into another regeneration. ‘We Go Down Together’ echoes every sentiment ASF have ever conveyed – to be yourself to a fault, survive and to live in a loving, positive way, no matter what the world is throwing at you.
The video for ‘We Go Down Together’ stars the members of As Sirens Fall and Eloise Kerry. Much like the other videos from As Sirens Fall, it is a standalone, narrative-driven concept. A cinematic and twisted modern take on the Bonnie & Clyde story, mashed up with tones of Natural Born Killers, True Romance and Baz Luhrmann’s Romeo & Juliet, with an extended scene during the video where the music stops and we can really feel who the characters are and what they are going through.
The song was produced, mixed and mastered by Romesh Dodangoda at Longwave Studios (Bring Me The Horizon, Bullet For My Valentine, Twin Atlantic) and the video was shot and edited by Joel Gardner.
"We Go Down Together feels like the perfect song for us to come back with. It feels like it’s been forever, and it feels important that whatever we put out now feels like we are unleashing something a little dangerous into the world.
It’s different enough to excite us and to get the fans perked up, but it’s also kind of the ultimate ‘As Sirens Fall’ song. I wanted to make people move and feel in a way we hadn’t before and I sincerely hope we’ve achieved that here.
This is a song for the weirdos. It’s a song for the people who have tried to fit in and who feel like they didn’t succeed in fitting in. Fuck fitting in. Be you and be a mystery. Be hard to pin down. Don’t pigeonhole yourself. Be whatever you want to be and do whatever you want to do. Love with everything you have and never let them take you alive. I really hope people can find something to get their teeth stuck into with this and that they pull some positive messages from it. I know I have.". - Mikey Lord
As Sirens Fall are heading out around the UK with Sumo Cyco at the end of November, for ten high volume, even higher energy shows. Being their longest UK tour to date, this is an excellent chance to see the band in their natural habitat, so if you're in the South or the North, get along and be part of the experience.
