Nu-metal revivalists Lionfight are teaming up with AP to bring you a new song titled “Black,” which was produced by singer Akash Hans and mixed by Nick Scott (Blessthefall, Crown the Empire, Asking Alexandria). Check out the lyric video below, and look out for more music from the band this spring.
“I recently tried to find an ex-girlfriend I had dated years ago to see how she was doing,” says Akash Hans. “When I couldn't find her anywhere online, I reached out to her sister to see how the family was doing. The news I received from her was pretty disturbing. It turns out that same innocent girl I once dated is now homeless under a bridge somewhere in Illinois, addicted to Heroin. Any day now, her family could receive a call to find out that she is dead. Sadly, she isn’t the only one. In the last two years, the members of lionfight have lost multiple friends to Heroin. Most of them losing their lives on the first try. The song, “Black,” is our musical representation of this vile drug flowing through the veins of our lost friends. It takes place in the mind of an outsider who is witnessing the user get high. This song is a very personal one to us.”
