Michigan-based metal act Upon Wings has teamed up with Revolver to premiere the music video for their song, ‘You Are My Weapon,’ which features guest vocals from Dark New Day’s Brett Hestla. The video can be seen below.
Frontwoman Anne Autumn Erickson says the track is ‘About having faith that someone you lost is still with you, giving you strength in this world. You Are My Weapon is really a victorious song. It’s about love and hope and healing, and I think it’s something everyone has experienced. This song really changed over time, and I like the fact it had a mind of its own.’
She added: ‘The video was shot over a few months, so it took a while. I think the outcome of the video tells the story of the song.’
‘You Are My Weapon’ was mastered by Glenn Brown (Kid Rock), produced by Kevin Jardine (Uplift Productions) and mixed by Corey Lowery (Eye Empire). The track features vocals by Anne Autumn Erickson, guitars by Kevin Jardine, and drums by Peter Tzaferis. The cover art for ‘You Are My Weapon’ was designed by Steve Pierce of Balefire Art, who has worked with Motionless in White, A Day to Remember, Pierce the Veil, Blessthefall and more.
‘You Are My Weapon’ comes off the project’s latest EP, “Afterlife” which was released March 5th. 2013 via Sword Of The Spirit Records LLC. The CD features guest vocals and production from Brett Hestla [ex-Creed, Dark New Day].
