Today’s track of the day is a heartbreakingly beautiful one! New Jersey’s Youth In Revolt have released the lyric video to new single Not Giving Up. The track is the second to be taken from their forthcoming debut album The Broken, following the premiere of the title track last month.
If you’re a fan of Sleeping With Sirens, it is very very likely you’ll love this! And if you’re not, it’s still 99% likely you’ll love this! Not Giving Up is a special track that holds deep meaning as bassist/screamer Kenny Torres told Rock Sound ahead of the premiere of the track; “Not Giving Up” is a very personal song to me actually. Right before we started recording this song I woke up to a call that my ex-girlfriend had died and we weren’t on the best of terms so it fucked me up hard. There were so many things I wish I could’ve apologized for and things I wish I could’ve said.
“To this day I’ll always feel responsible in some way because words have an impact on people and you say hurtful words to people when you’re immature and don’t know how to handle a breakup. It really makes you wonder and say ‘what if I didn’t say that’ or ‘what if I said this instead and didn’t stress this person out’.
“This song was about our relationship and how everything was just fucked up, and how I wish I could’ve been a better person.”
