Emo/punk band Jack The Envious are gearing up for the release of their new EP Bleeding Honesty this fall, but today you can watch the music video for the first single “Walk in the Dark.” Premiering with Substream Magazine, the track’s contemplative, introspective lyrics counter an upbeat chorus that will surely become “the voice in your head.”
“Walk In The Dark” is about chasing your dreams against all challenges and that isn’t just a cliché sentiment for these guys. Founding members Nir Perlman and Guy “Chuck” Checkarov met while serving in the Israeli army and bonded over their love for early 2000’s emo and Linkin Park (because what’s one without the other?).
“This song was mainly based on the constant struggle we have inside ourselves everyday, that fight between doing what you feel is right and what’s expected of you,” says vocalist/guitarist Nir Perlman.
After the release of their debut record Pull You Down, the band packed up and made the move to London to pursue music full-time. They began touring extensively in the UK, releasing the In Your Own Way EP which featured their unique take on the songs “Wonderwall” and “Feel Good Inc.”
Jack The Envious has always been fiercely DIY and their new record Bleeding Honesty is no exception. Produced by the band themselves, the title reflects their desire to release their most intimate and lyrically honest music to date.
Bleeding Honesty will be released on November 2nd.
