Today, HM is proud to premiere the new lyric video for “Lightwork” from Florida-based metalcore-slash-nu-metal outfit Subxero. The song comes from the eponymous EP, the fourth overall release from the band but their third EP.
We spoke with vocalist Jason Xero about the song, a work centered on the uphill battle people face when confronting today’s landscape.
“The title track ‘Lightwork’ tells a story of someone who feels as if he is not from this world and doesn’t belong but was placed here to shine his light in the darkness. He encourages others to shine with him, as well. But, given the current state of the modern world, he gets tired of trying because everyone is cold and nobody wants to listen or cares enough to listen. He decides he just wants to leave this world and go back home to his place in the sky.”
The band formed in 2016 but went through a lineup change in 2017 following creative differences. After pulling together a new group of Florida heavy hitters, the band released their second EP, Blood In, Blood Out.
