New Orleans rock band Secondborn is proud to premiere their new music video for “For the Sake of Safety” here with HM. The song comes from the band’s upcoming full-length, set to hit stores and streams later this year. That full-length will follow sophomore EP Symbols, which came out in 2015.

We spoke with guitarist Patrick Trumps about the song:

“‘The Sake of Safety’ is one of our favorite songs to play live. We wanted to find a way to share that energy and love of the song with everyone. (For the video) we set up cameras at every show in July so we could get as much footage of the song being performed on stage and our drummer, Lee, put it all together. We really hope it makes people want to come out to a show and rock with us!”

You can find the band at their website or on Facebook.

PR in the Time of Pandemic

No one knows artists better than Amy Sciarretto, industry veteran and President of Atom Splitter PR. So when the world hit pause and artists had to call an audible, there is no one better to talk to about how those bands are pivoting in a new reality. Sciarretto talks to us from her own home in New Jersey about how the pandemic is affecting artists, their process of undergoing transition, and how it's going to change music – maybe in great and unexpected ways.

After years of introspection and coming-of-age, Ever Eden has embraced their own struggles, as haunting as it may feel, to create a community that's turned out to be much larger than the band itself.
