We haven’t heard new music from the band since they dropped an emotional cover of Linkin Park’s “Faint” back in the spring. The band’s lead singer Matty Mullins made a statement about why they chose the track and what the song means to the band.

“A lot of times, when covering a song, you’re doing it for fun or to showcase your skills as an artist,” Mullins said. “But this specific opportunity was a chance for us to honor a band that has had a profound impact on us.”

“There will never be another Linkin Park and there will never be another Chester Bennington. We are forever grateful for the music they made and we hope this cover will encourage our younger fans to dive into the Linkin Park discography and discover the same inspiration that we did years ago.”

You can listen to the cover below.

Around that same time, they dropped their album Broken and shared the music video for “Heavy Is The Weight” from the record. You can grab your copy of Broken here.

Mullins said they drew inspiration from the feeling of performing to make the video.

“The idea for the video was to capture the vibe and emotion of the song in a live performance setting,” Mullins says. “We rarely do videos that are strictly live performance, but this song was a great opportunity to do so.”

You can check out that video below.
