Exclusive: Blessthefall Premiere “Promised Ones”

Arizona metalcore quintet Blessthefall are set to drop their third album, Awakening (Fearless), on October 4, but Revolver is giving you an exclusive sneak preview right now. Check out “Promised Ones” from the new record below and read what frontman Beau Bokan has to say about the track. After you’ve had yourself a listen don’t forget to tell us what you think of it in the comments section.

REVOLVER What’s this song about?
BEAU BOKAN This song is us saying that we’re here to stay. Some people have been saying “Blessthefall is back!”… but the truth is we’ve never gone anywhere. It’s our battle hymn.

Which part of it did you come up with first? And what was the inspiration?
I had the line “We are the promised ones” written in my phone for a while and I just built off of that. My inspiration was the battle that we go through in our lives; the battle to stay relevant and the battle to be one of the best bands in music today.

Was this an easy song to write or record?
Once I sat down with the music and started writing the lyrics and melody it came very, very quickly, and I was stoked on all my ideas. There were a few high harmonies to sing in the song, but I think I nailed ‘em. [Laughs]

What sort of feedback have you gotten on this song so far?
We put out a 30-second clip of this song not too long ago and kids are freaking out. Makes us feel really good that they are stoked on new material. They’ll be blown away by the full track!

    So glad to see that blessthefall hasn’t sold out like most bands today. They’re still blessthefall and I love it :)

  • PoisedMaverick

    Good song, of course, but has a little different edge in their that isn’t truly BTF – not saying it’s bad, just different.
    However, the “breakdown” starting at 2:34 was far too simple and below the capabilities and potential of the band.
    BottomFeeder was better, but not by much.Good job guys. :)

  • Ergwerg

    what solo ? 

  • Pokinatchapunkboi

    I’m so sick of BTF writing in the same key and using all the same lead pieces, and just speeding them up or slowing them down. I learned and knew how to play this song on guitar and bass before it was even finished.
