Southern California rock band Takers Leavers have premiered their new music video recently. You can check out the video for their song “Fist To Wall” below. The song is from the band’s upcoming new album Break & Bloom which is due out on September 7th.
Vocalist/guitarist David Baqi commented:
‘Fist to Wall’ – This was the first song we wrote together for this EP. It is heavily inspired by the popular anime, Fullmetal Alchemist. From themes including: letting go, taboo, coping with loss/anger, and facing consequences, “Fist to Wall” is a desperate attempt to regain what one has lost, no matter the cost. A very important theme in Fullmetal is the idea of “equivalent exchange”, to gain something, you must first sacrifice something. In desperate times, we are pushed to great extremes, even practicing techniques that we know are harmful. The line “don’t look for answers in all of the wrong places” summarizes this pretty well.
