See This Through Release “On My Own” Music Video

Rock quartet See This Through are releasing their new music video titled, “On My Own“. The new emotional, heart-felt video comes from the outfit’s title track, off their 2016 debut EP. The song describes a dark time in vocalist, Nick Blohm‘s life, saying:

“‘On My Own’ contains the most honest lyrics that I’ve ever written. It’s a result of many life-changing events and it took a long time for me to sort my thoughts to deal with all that happened. The song is incredibly personal for me. We all shared a vision for the video, as it’s just as personal for everyone in the band as it is for me. It needed to be dark and full of emotion. It needed to be a bit claustrophobic. It needed to tell a story, just like the song. I think we accomplished that.”

See This Through will be opening up for SeetherSkilletAll That RemainsPuddle of Mudd, and Otherwise on June 11th @ The Bear’s Big Growl in South Bend, Indiana. You can purchase their “On My Own” EP on iTunes.

About See This Through:

See This Through is more than just a name to the modern rock quartet from South Bend, IN. “It’s about never stopping,” says guitarist and lead vocalist Nick Blohm, “it’s about going after something that you never thought you could accomplish.”

It’s this mentality that brought Chad Ellsworth (lead guitarist) and Nick together in 2014 in what would become See This Through. “Ever since I heard [Nick’s] solo stuff, I was captivated by each and every song I heard him play,” explains Chad, “I said to myself, ‘I wish I was up there playing music with this guy.’ And now, a couple of years later, here we are.” After a few months of working and writing material, Steve Howell stepped in on drums, followed by Tyler Curran on bass guitar, to complete the lineup.
Within a year of playing together, the group set out to record its debut EP. After months of writing, rehearsing, and pre-production, they hit the studio in early 2016 to produce “On My Own”. Combining meaningful lyrics with powerful vocals, thick guitars and driving percussion, “On My Own” embodies the notion of moving forward and never giving up. This theme echoes throughout their songs as they touch on subjects of inadequacy, self-actualization, and redemption.

The year 2016 proved to be an exciting challenge for See This Through as they turned heads in each venue they performed in. With their long-term sights set upon the national market, they’re making it a point to take on the Midwest, city by city, throughout 2017. As to their thoughts on what the future holds for them, Nick sums it up by stating, “With our work ethic, I can’t say exactly where we’re going to be… but I can tell you we’re going to like where we’re at.”

BLACKTOP MOJO RELEASES OFFICIAL VIDEO FOR “WHERE THE WIND BLOWS” OFF OF NEW LP ‘BURN THE SHIPS’

Seamlessly blending melody with adrenaline fueled, heavy rock and roll, Blacktop Mojo draws in everyone from old metal heads to people whose radio dials have never left top 40 stations. With soaring, gritty vocals and impeccably blended heavy guitar grooves set around a raucous southern stomp, Blacktop Mojo’s live shows are sure to leave fans’ screaming at the top of their lungs with metal horns in the air.

It was a blast making this video. We got to do it with a bunch of our friends from our home town of Palestine, TX in the bar where we played our first show. It basically turned into a two day party and the fun we had really comes through in the video. – Blacktop Mojo

Formed in the final weeks of 2012, Blacktop Mojo began cutting their teeth in the numerous country venues that Texas has to offer, but the guys never quite felt like they belonged. With each song they wrote, the vocals got less twangy and the sound from the amps became more gravelly and distorted until the guys had found their own unique blend of heavy southern rock. Through touring, the band has played with many national acts such as Bon JoviSammy HagarAaron LewisDaryl “DMC’ McDanielsCandleboxDrowning PoolPuddle Of MuddSmile Empty SoulAudiotopsy, and Whiskey Myers.

After running the highways for two years in support of their debut album, I Am(2014), in July of this year the band loaded their gear in the van and made a trip to Sound Emporium Studios in Nashville, as well as FAME Studios in Muscle Shoals, AL to make their sophomore effort entitled, Burn The Ships. In addition to the producer of the band’s first record, Philip Mosley, the band brought in co-producer, Jimmy Johnson of the legendary Muscle Shoals Sound studios as well as his long time engineer, Steve Melton (Lynyrd SkynyrdThe Rolling StonesBob Seger) to bring a seasoned sonic quality to their brand of raw, grungy rock. Burn The Ships was released March 10th of 2017 garnering critical acclaim in both US and European press outlets including Team Rock’s Classic Rock Magazine, who is quoted as saying “Blacktop Mojo might just be America’s next big rock band.”

Blacktop Mojo Release Title Track Off of Upcoming LP, ‘Burn The Ships’

Blacktop Mojo have released the second and title single off their 2017 LP, Burn The Ships. Order via Bandcamp.

“We all quit our jobs at about the same time to make this record and play as much as possible—that was our all in, no going back moment. It reminded me of a story we heard from the 1500s about a Spanish explorer that sailed to conquer a territory. Once they landed on the beach, he burned all the ships so all his men knew one thing was clear, there’s no going back. That’s what that song is about, and that’s the story of our lives at the point of the record being created.” – Blacktop Mojo
