Spoken Releases “Falling Apart” Music Video From Upcoming Album

PROMO_HIRES

Spoken has released a music video for their track “Falling Apart” off their upcoming record Breathe Again (out December 11th on Artery Recordings). “Falling Apart” is the 2nd single to be released from the album following the critically acclaimed title track “Breathe Again” (featuring Matty Mullins of Memphis May Fire) which was released earlier this year.

“Falling Apart” was produced by Cameron Mizell and recorded at Chango Studios in Glendale, Arizona. The Video was directed by Sam Link of Collapse Studios and filmed in Columbia, Tennessee at a graveyard for business signs. We were fortunate enough to have Trevor Sarver from The Wedding fill in for the video, which helped us out a lot because he is such a stud and has great hair.

“Falling Apart” is about our past. We all have a one whether we like it or not. If our past currently affects our future, its no longer our past, Its our present which shapes our future. We can’t let our past define us, instead we need to set new goals and ambitions for our lives, free from the insecurities and doubt which cases us to fall apart.Spoken
