HM is proud to premiere Fight the Fade’s new lyric video for the track “Lanterns (in the Dark).” The Tulsa, OK rock outfit formed in February 2009, the band released an EP shortly thereafter, following it up with 2012’s What We Know and 2014’s Second Horizon. (And they had a particularly popular hit with a cover of Adele’s “Set Fire to the Rain.”)

We spoke with vocalist Zene Smith about the new track, the first single from their upcoming album.

“Lanterns (in the Dark) is a song written about taking a chance on someone you love, risking the comfort and security of the light to go bring them out of the darkness they’ve wandered into. Sometimes it’s easy to isolate yourself and push away people that love you, but the love you share will always burn brighter than the darkness and pain of being alone.”

The self-titled album is scheduled for release July 1.
