Brazilian metalcore band APRIL 21ST have revealed a new music video and single for the song “Healing My Wounds“.

Make sure to check out the new music video for “Healing My Wounds” below.
“This song tells a story in first person, the moment when someone is unable to visualize the solution for their problems and they go into deep depression” says guitarist Herbert. “The chorus is an inner voice screaming that it is necessary to be strong to continue, and that nobody can help you except for yourself. In the video, we are representing this ongoing fight between someone’s mind and their demons, as an actual fight in a boxing ring. The message is simple though; we have to keep fighting and believe in ourselves no matter how difficult a situation seems to be.”
Courage is Born From Fear by APRIL 21ST is a bold part of a large metalcore mural, showing us the landscape of our lives. The band does not just write songs, they craft concepts too. One might notice a metamorphosis as the music evolves track to track, often themed similarly with emblematic depictions of depression or the power of lies, but it is the structure of the vocal itself that brings the listener to profound satisfaction. The tracks on this EP are innovative and they clearly place the band on the map at the center of the metalcore genre.
