In Dying Arms Premieres Powerful and Controversial Video
In Dying Arms is delivering a powerful message with their new video for "Blackwater". The song itself shows the struggle of suicidal thoughts and feeling like one is dealing with life by themselves. The band wanted to stay true to the meaning of the song with the video and show fans that they are not alone. Vocalist Orion Stephens explains, "The Blackwater music video is about suicide contemplation with this character who has hit rock bottom and believes this is his only way out. In this video, we wanted it to look as real as possible with a very grim realistic setting. The conclusion of the video is the character finding his self worth as he watches the sun rising after his long night of failed suicide attempts." Stephens continues with a message for fans, "We spent a lot of time on this video and hope it hits home for a lot of viewers that can relate to this message. Stay strong."
The band also celebrated a milestone anniversary. September 10th marked the ten year anniversary of In Dying Arms.
