Futurepunk group The Plague is proud to premiere the new lyric video for “Will You Ever Know Me,” a new, somber track about vocalist David Adam Monroe’s relationship with his father. We spoke with Monroe about the track:

“‘Will You Ever Know Me’ is a very personal song about my relationship with my father. He was diagnosed with cancer at a time when our relationship was not at a strong point. The song is about grieving the loss of a relationship, when part of you wants to keep hope alive.”

The band’s debut album, Hope for the Future, is out on Oct. 13 on Recover Records, the label started and ran by frontman Monroe. He was previously a member of Third Estate, a group who toured on Warped Tour from 2002-2006.
