Bangalore, India-based metalheads Final Surrender are proud to premiere the new lyric video for their song, “Tear Down the Walls.” The song comes from the band’s Nothing but Void EP, released early in 2017. The lyric video features live footage shot and captured by Plinther Mendoza, directed by the band’s own Joseph Samuel and James Stephenus. “This was the most natural video we’ve shot so far,” Stephenus, guitarist for the band, said about the show filmed for the video. “It was great to play to an awesome Bangalore crowd.”

Samuel, vocalist, also spoke about the song:

“The song is about coming to terms with how Trump is building a wall in Mexico. Just kidding! ‘Tear Down the Walls’ is a song about coming to terms with our selfish frailties we experience in the relationships we share with the people around us.”

The band is currently signed to Rottweiler Records.
