After the Burial Premiere Official Video for "Collapse"
After The Burial have premiered the official video for “Collapse.” The track comes off their recently released album ‘Dig Deep.’
The album title is a nod to the circumstances surrounding this album, one that found the five-piece moving on without founding member Justin Lowe after his tragic suicide in July. “We coped as well as we could have—we still are,” admits singer Anthony Notarmaso. “Losing someone isn’t easy, and we all dealt with it in our own way. I was angry and sad at the same time. I didn’t know how to feel, and it took time to accept that he really was gone. After the dust settled, we got on the phone to see where we stood. To be honest, we thought about giving up. We asked ourselves if it was right to go on without him, or maybe if it was time to start a new band together. In the end, we felt like we couldn’t let what beat him beat us. That would’ve been even more tragic, and we felt like he wouldn’t have wanted us to stop. I know I wouldn’t have.”
“When you think you don’t have anything left in you, you have to rely on that inner strength,” adds guitar player Trent Hafdahl. “That’s where we are as a band. So many things beyond our control went wrong, but we started to dig deep as brothers.”
'Dig Deep' was recorded at Graphic Nature Audio in New Jersey with producer Will Putney (The Amity Affliction, Upon A Burning Body). The album is the first where the band partnered with a producer. “We had not tried it before,” explains Hafdahl. “It felt like a fresh idea to do something new. We were still running the show obviously, but he brought a good ear for tone and melody. He encouraged us to explore more. To have that perspective was helpful.”
