The Color Morale release “Prey For Me” music video

September 02 2014, 11:03 AM EDT By Brian Kraus

Former AP cover co-stars The Color Morale have premiered a music video for "Prey For Me" from Hold On Pain Ends, their new studio album released today on Fearless Records. It's also streaming in full on AltPress.

"The music video for 'Prey For Me' consists of harsh and aggressive subject matter like eating disorders, drug abuse, self-harm, and suicide. I spent our entire album cycle communicating with kids and adults alike on how our previous video and album affected them emotionally before we wrote this record. There wasn't one day while I was on tour that I didn't encounter kids with self-harm wounds and self-sabotage stories," explains vocalist Garret Rapp.

"It saddens me that there are closed-minded critics that will see something like the video for 'Prey For Me' as "cliché" or "generic."  The reality is that I relate and connect to the people buried in self-sabotage like I have been. The reality is also that I have been handed countless letters and shared countless stories while tears fell. That's who this video and this record is for, specifically, people that need reminders that they aren't alone in their fight. We all have voices, and this music video was another chance to use them and connect. It's a reminder we don't have to remain victim to ourselves—we are capable of greater."

You can order the album on the band's official site.
