-influenced alternative band  has officially released their new single “” across all music platforms along with a lyric video for the thought-provoking song, with lyrics such as “Locked up and I don’t know why, captive and I’m hardly me/I bet you’ve never seen a world like this, a new reality.” The lyric video for “” has already garnered over 47,000 total views in a week.

 “‘’ is a song that crosses into new territory both stylistically and subject-wise,” shares the band. “In a divided country/world, it’s always helpful to look at conflict from the opposing POV and ask ‘Why?’.”
