Just last week I wrote about Death To New Years, the latest EP from The World Is A Beautiful Place & I Am No Longer Afraid To Die, and I noted that the Connecticut Band have been working on their second LP Harmlessness. Well we now have the first single from their sophomore effort, entitled 'January 10th, 2014', and it's a big track with an even bigger message.
In their own words:
'January 10th, 2014' is about retaliation against predators. The character in the song, Diana, is based on the story of a woman from Ciudad Juarez, Mexico who avenged unprosecuted and largely ignored sexual assaults being committed by bus drivers on their routes. The video replaces the real life Diana with Dianic Wiccans who protect themselves using hexes and their own spirituality. The male character in the video is a predator, and therefore must be destroyed.
