Letters From the Fire, ‘Zombies in the Sun’ – Exclusive Lyric Video Premiere
Letters From the Fire are a band to keep an eye on as the fall gets underway. The group is promoting their self-titled EP and they've teamed with Loudwire to bring you the exclusive premiere of their new lyric video for the single 'Zombies in the Sun.'
Frontman Elliot Weber says of the song, “The track 'Zombies in the Sun' was actually written the second day I was in the studio with Mike Keller (guitars). Honestly, you never know what to expect when writing with a complete stranger, which at that time I hardly knew Mike or any of the guys at all. Mike was showing me some recordings and new ideas in which he tracked previously, and that intro riff to 'Zombies in the Sun' awakened some very strong feelings I've experienced, and instantly caught my attention. The emotions and thoughts which ran through my mind, I quickly found myself writing them down instantly about personal encounters I've endured with close friends and loved ones who were addicted to heroin."
Weber continues, "I began writing metaphorically, acknowledging ones struggle with the drug, but soon found myself very angry in thought. I'm sure many can relate, seeing a kind, honest soul be taken away, and have such poison dilute their reality. It truly effects everyone around them, and users are completely unaware yet aware at times what they're doing. My friends and loved ones turned into completely different people, doing things I'd never thought they do, and in some instances, the addiction took their lives. 'Zombies in the Sun' is a song that's a call to action, cause I'm sick of losing good people to addiction. I'm expressing to all who struggle with this disease, to wake up, come back to reality and resurrect their souls."
Letters From the Fire have a full fall ahead of them. They're currently finishing a trek with Nonpoint, Eyes Set to Kill and Righteous Vendetta and will hop onto a tour with Pop Evil, with Within Reason, Bad Seed Rising and New Medicine also spending some time on the run. Their tour dates can be found below.
