Prepare to be impressed! Infectious pop hooks, exhilarating vocals, hair-raising riffs, and unforgettable melodies are only a fraction of what listeners should expect to hear on A LIGHT DIVIDED's upcoming full-length release, Choose Your Own Adventure, releasing to the masses on October 5, 2018. Chock full of catchy, memorable anthems that poise A LIGHT DIVIDED to be the next big pop/metal crossover, Choose Your Own Adventure is an essential listen. Choose Your Own Adventure is available for pre-order now in physical and digital formats.
A LIGHT DIVIDED features the breathtaking, powerhouse pipes of frontwoman Jaycee Clark, plus instrumentation from drummer Adam Smith, bassist Mike Underwood and guitarists Doug Weichbrodt and Colt Crevar. As proven by their work ethic and determination to succeed coupled with their high-intensity live show, A LIGHT DIVIDED have amassed a growing underground army of dedicated fans. Their unique blend of rock and metal with pop sensibility has landed them opportunities to perform on the Vans Warped Tour and with national acts such as In This Moment, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and Crowbar.
Get your very first taste of Choose Your Own Adventure with the hooky, high-energy new single and electrifying music video for "Fear of Heights", directed and filmed by Justin Reich of Antimatter Studios. The video was originally premiered by Alternative Press and can be viewed via the AltPress Facebook page or via YouTube here:
"As someone who constantly battles with anxiety and self-image concerns, "Fear of Heights" deals with being afraid to get out of your own way when it comes to relationships," says vocalist Jaycee Clark. "It's scary being vulnerable enough to let someone into your inner crazy because what if they don't like what they find? But for the right person, you realize you have to open up and face those fears or you risk losing everything."
As made evident on "Fear of Heights", A LIGHT DIVIDED's undeniable songwriting prowess is accented by Choose Your Own Adventure's lyrical content. The band explores personal, relevant topics - ranging from relationships to mental health - inspired by their own lives and losses. At the age that important decisions they make now could impact the development of the rest of their lives, all five members of A LIGHT DIVIDED put their own experiences to paper on Choose Your Own Adventure, creating a relatable experience for listeners.
"We underwent a lot of major changes since our last record so, it was really important for Choose Your Own Adventure to reflect all of that growth," says Jaycee. "We constantly pushed ourselves to step further and further outside our comfort zone and ultimately created a record I couldn't be more proud of. Lyrically, Choose Your Own Adventure deals with topics like frustration, mental health, loss, betrayal, relationships, hope and continuing to fight for what you love despite those challenges. I think everyone has had those experiences at some point and I hope these songs can help someone to see the light in those dark times."
Choose Your Own Adventure was produced by Kile Odell (Motionless In White, Cane Hill) and Joshua Landry (Letters From The Fire, Motionless In White).
New Noise Magazine called the band's last album, Mirrors, "...one of the most dynamic, diverse and important genre-blended alternative rock albums of the year," but A LIGHT DIVIDED take the potency to a whole new level on Choose Your Own Adventure.
