Italian post hardcore band If I Die Today, is primed to carve their narrative once again with the premiere of a new video for the single “Autumn (Sadness)“. A potent mix of introspective lyricism and raw energy, the band, which has been rocking stages all over Italy since the release of their 2022 album, “The Abyss in Silence,” proudly presents their new music video, whose release coincides with their debut performance at the Venezia Hardcore Fest, one of Europe’s premier DIY/Alternative punk/hardcore festivals.

The band, whose line-up recently experienced a change with Mana taking over drumming duties from founding member Dudu, has been actively promoting “The Abyss in Silence” through live performances and is simultaneously working on creating new music for a forthcoming EP, slated for early 2024.

“‘Autumn‘ is a song intending to describe the stages of grief’s depression and the steps throughout which any hope is left, until the consciousness that what once was will be no more,” explained the band.

The single delves deep into emotional realms, capturing the essence of vain hope, loss, and the struggle of acceptance. The main character of the video, portrayed as the subconscious of a young child, navigates through various stages of grief, showcasing the pain and struggle of dealing with despair and denial, anger, negotiation, and the arduous path towards acceptance.

“Autumn (Sadness)” lyrics:

like a thief in the night

his eyes full of emptiness
to make us understand we are nothing

my heart is full
of cold bones
my head is full of never-ending storms
I’m afraid this will never end
this will never end
I’m afraid this will never end
this will never end

We went down the abyss in silence

And I bled myself dry
trying to forget the pain

the moment when it was all over
the instant you disappeared
will live inside of me


“We went down the abyss in silence”

(loosely inspired by the poem “Verrà la morte e avrà I tuoi occhi” by Cesare Pavese – 1951)
