The official music video for the dead and the soon to be! produced by Derek Kovacevic.

Some live life to the fullest, while some live life just to die. The clocks always ticking. How wisely do most use that finite time? Is it fulfilling? Did you do something meaningful? The walking dead roam the earth. Wasting your time means you might as well be dead already.
We are very proud to present the official video for “The Dead and The Soon To Be”, from our 2023 sophomore album “From The Ashes”. Ever since its conception, this has been one of our favourite tracks and a live staple for us. We were thrilled to have had the opportunity to capture the essence of this track with an official video, with help from our good friend Derek Kovacevic. Derek is a wicked videographer and lent his talents to lead with filming and editing this video for us. We are objectively a more serious type of band based on our subject matter and the energy of our music, but we decided to turn the tables with a comedic and light hearted video representation. The song itself is about life being short and unfortunate, and most people throwing it away before it’s too late. However, we took the optimistic approach with this video to look at the other side of the lens, where we should still enjoy all the little things because life is short and unfair. Hence us running around in hospital gowns being as silly as possible. This video was created in Kamloops, as a last minute decision during our cross Canada tour in September. And as you could imagine, we had a lot of interesting looks and reactions, being 5 grown men running around town in hospital gowns. We even had the RCMP called on us a few times, which we sadly didn’t get to include in the video. But either way, we couldn’t be happier with the process and how this video turned out, and we are excited to show everyone a different side of us.

Some live life to the fullest, while some live life just to die. The clocks always ticking. How wisely do most use that finite time? Is it fulfilling? Did you do something meaningful? The walking dead roam the earth. Wasting your time means you might as well be dead already.

Lyrics:
Enter the void of a broken world
From the birth of life and the birth of death
Exist, just to suffer and suffer to gain
Your shallow shell in this mortal game

This mortal game

The clock’s a bomb, ticking each year
We follow orders, consumed by fear
Sheep that barely scrape by to waste time
Dying to wake up, wake up to die

Enjoy the bitter taste
Of a short and unfair life
Only broken eyes can see
The dead and the soon to be

You’ve already passed and you don’t know it yet
If you live for no reason than you’re already dead
Then when your time comes, you’ll remain the same
You only wake up when you claw at your own grave

Mortal grave

Enjoy the bitter taste
Of a short and unfair life
Only broken eyes can see
The dead and the soon to be

Rinse and repeat, a mindless cycle
The day-to-day life of withering away
Nothing to achieve, the dream is hopeless
Open up your eyes just to close them one day

Enjoy the bitter taste
Of a short and unfair life
Only broken eyes can see
The dead and the soon to be
