Today, HM is proud to premiere Theody’s latest single and music video for “Tempest,” off their upcoming album, Smoke and Mirrors. Fueled by unyielding fortitude and relentless tenacity, the hard rock outfit unleashes a new brand of righteous fury with their new track.
A perfect blend of driving production, dark progressions, a trudging groove, and a climbing chorus that bursts through the tension differently each time, the song grapples with the inner-struggles of worth, identity, and weathering the refining fires of doubt — all wrapped in a bold exterior that fans have never heard before.
We spoke with vocalist Lauren Kinder about the track:
“This song is special and personal to me — I was in a pretty low place, feeling misunderstood, unwanted, and ill-equipped for the roles I was in professionally. There were a lot of lies in my head, and I knew I needed to be reminded of the truth about my value and authority.”
“As for the video, we have been dying to work with Joel Burris (Fireflight, Zahna) for years,” said Kinder. “It was hours of being soaked and freezing, but it was totally worth it for the end result!”
