As Canadian outfit Vesuvius releases new single "This House Is Not A Home," today we're bringing you an exclusive premiere of the track's lyric video - check it out below! Vesuvius' Benjamin Cooligan also comments on the new song:
"'This House is Not a Home' serves as a first installment of a vast excursion spanning many personal experiences and viewpoints. The lyrics are an excerpt from a writing crafted during the darkest period of my life.
"The recording process was by far the most emotional that we as musicians have faced to date. Hopefully the message we have come to share can apply personally to each and every one of you."
The driving concept behind Vesuvius (often stylized VSUVS) is to be hard-working, driven musicians who hunger to perfect and share their craft. The convocation of Vesuvis didn't occur overnight - the band's lineup had seen many a crowd and shared many a stage before discovering the unique chemistry behind its current guise.
Billy, Robin, Taylor, and Benjamin have all composed and performed both music and other art forms for multiple years under different identities; most notably, the four had shared the stage among two other bandmates under the name Of Burning Empires since the spring of 2012. When said act found little progress within those years, the four grew hungry, longing for sustainability and took on a new name and form.
Now reborn, long merciless days and long sleepless nights are devoted towards honing the sound and message Vesuvius has set out to achieve. For more info on Vesuvius, head over to the band's Facebook profile here. More...
