Concord, NH-based Letting Go is proud to premiere the music video for their newest single, “Ropeswing,” here on HM. The metalcore quartet previously released an EP, Lost Time, before heading out on a couple headlining United States runs, garnering a backing and solid fan base.

Since then, the band has entered the studio with Jay Maas to record their debut full-length album, Something to Me. “Ropeswing” comes from said album. Letting Go worked with Burke Cullinane to help bring to life the ideas behind the meaning of the song.

We spoke with vocalist Aric Leighton about the new single:

“Ropeswing is a song about hitting your lowest point and thinking that there’s no way out except to end it all. In the video, we really wanted to capture that anyone can have these thoughts, even just going through the motions of their everyday life. Always remember to check in on your friends and family; anyone could be going through something you know nothing about.”

You can pick up the new album from the band’s Big Cartel website.
