Melodic hardcore dreamers WE STRUCK GOLD premiere new single “Giving Up On Giving In”

Have you found yourself questioning as to why we as a social collective conform so effortlessly, what our purpose is, are we in control of our lives or simply floating through the plains of a perceived existence? Are our dreams our own construct or the design of a different entity? Do we own our thoughts or are they conspired and planted? These are the very questions that WE STRUCK GOLD have delved into since their last release of To Conquer Fear // All Life Is Divine. The Bristol based metalcore / melodic hardcore act joins us today for the official premiere of the song “Giving Up On Giving In”, and we’re pleased to give you the first airing of the video above and the band’s special commentary about the content behind its lyrics, explained in detail below.

“Dwelling on what are we, why are we, where are we, on life itself, that’s all of us who inhabit this big bad world, we have chosen to reinvent ourselves.” – comments the band.

“Being immersed in the dreamlike state we found ourselves in when asking those very questions, we concluded that we are the architects of our own destiny. How we interpret reality, the dimension we occupy, perceive what we see or hear what we hear, where is here? Who are you, who am I, am I not you and you not me? Are we we or are you me? You are you because I am me, I am me because you are you. We are we, we are We Struck Gold.

Bare witness as your truth unfolds. Perceive it, visualise it, live it. Our music is our message, our being is our dream.”

Asked about the content behind the new track, they continue: “The false sense of self is truly alive. The harrowing voice, urging on a resentment of accomplishment; feeding off the fear of failure. It is often believed that we are the fabricators of our own cynicism of failure, yet all it takes is one step back to consider… is that voice truly ours?”

“This is a battle that we each share in our own lives. Giving Up On Giving In marks the beginning of our war, waged on self doubt for the reclamation of desire and purpose. The strategy – total aggression. Ruinous rhythm guitars dictate the stomping ground, while intense vigour seeps through every beat of the drums. Every line captures the frustration and relentlessness of an issue that we as a band can all relate to.”

Lyrics:

Doubt me
I’m not giving up, giving up
All eyes on me, I don’t give a f**k, give it up,

Watch me
As I live it up, live it up,
Without your doubt there’s no reason to give a f**k

Pull me under
If my mind’s still stuck in my way, I’ll have whatever it takes just to feel
Nothing

I’ll have whatever it takes not to feel

I’ve never felt so unheard
With every word, with every word
Step back and hear everything
Giving up on giving in

Doubt me
I’m not giving up, giving up,
All eyes on me, I don’t give a f**k, give it up,
Watch me
As I live it up, live it up,
I’ll clear a path, I’m not leaving it down to luck

You better give in or give up,

We Struck Gold

You stay consumed in watching me,
You’ll be a distant f**king memory,
You stay consumed in watching me,
You’ll be a distant memory

I’ve never felt so unheard
With every word, with every word
Step back and hear everything
Giving up on giving in

Doubt me, cast me out and watch as I’m
Giving up on giving in

Now you can hear me sing,
I’m giving up on giving in,

I’ve never felt so unheard
With every word, with every word
Step back and hear everything
Giving up on giving in
(Doubt me)
I’ve never felt so unheard
(Cast me out)
Giving up on giving in
(Doubt me)
Step back and hear everything
(Cast me out)
I’m giving up on giving in
