FACT and Alternative Press Magazine are exclusively bringing you the new live performance music video for Tonight. The track is a great starter song for new fans, as Tonight is essentially the essence of the band condensed into just over a minute. The band expertly displays their effortless ability to mix blast beat-laden metalcore and pop-punk influenced harmonies—a skill that is evident throughout FACT’s new album Burundanga, which drops on its new release date of June 4, 2013 via Good Fight Music. Take a look at the new video for Tonight at this location.
FACT vocalist/guitarist Adam Graham states,
“The video was shot when we did a (sold out) headline show at a venue called The Pipeline in London in March this year after our UK tour with Your Demise. It was rad.”
“The track Tonight was recorded in Florida with Elvis Baskette (as was the rest of the album), and it’s probably one of my favourite songs on the record. Lyrically, Tonight is a song about realising the moment you’re in and seizing the opportunities that that moment presents. Not wanting to sound pretentious or anything, but it’s about that moment of epiphany when you realise that you’re the one who controls your own destiny. It’s a positive message – it’s about takings control and taking responsibility. It fits into the lyrical theme of the album as a whole because a lot of Burundanga is about being able to take the positives out of loss and regret – everyone has dark stuff happen to them, but it’s all about being able to pick out the specks of light in those dark times, and Tonight is all about doing that right now.”
FACT has another video up for viewing, this time for the track Pink Rolex, exclusively available on their Facebook page. Check it out at this location.
Burundanga is a digital-only release and will be available from iTunes, Amazon and all your favorite digital music retailers.
With the band’s last two records charting in the Top 10 in their native Japan, the band has continued to enhance their burgeoning reputation with intensive touring both on home turf and across the United States and Europe – touring which has seen them play on the main stage at festivals such as Sonisphere (UK) and Summer Sonic (Japan) as well as forge a hardcore following with a series of club tours alongside established international touring acts Your Demise, Iwrestledabearonce, Senses Fail and Memphis May Fire amongst many others. At the present, FACT has sold roughly 260,000 albums worldwide.
