Columbus, OH rock outfit Ever Burning Bright is premiering their newest music video for “Stay After Me” on HM today. The band, a four-piece with sounds reminiscent of Paramore or Flyleaf, wrote the song as a blessing to their fans who struggle with behavioral health issues, including depression. The video was directed by Alex and Brady Doepker over at Dead Shark Productions.

Guitarist Aaron Dill wrote in to HM about the song:

“We wrote ‘Stay After Me’ to encourage those struggling with anxiety and depression. The song was inspired by 1 Peter 5:8 which says, ‘Be alert and on your guard, for your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour,’ an enemy that shows itself in the form of depression, anxiety, doubt, loneliness, worry and feelings of worthlessness. A force that makes you feel like you are alone, being hunted down by your own subconscious.

“This song was written as a battle cry against that darkness that seeks to overtake us and keep us in its control. Your struggles don’t define you. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness can never extinguish it.”

EBB was formed in early 2014 and has been moving steadily on to people’s radars. The band released their debut EP, Against All Odds, soon after their formation. “Stay After Me” is their first radio-intended rock single.
