Take The Fall (@takethefallnc)
Hey all, Tyler here. I wanted to take a little time and thank every single person who took the time to check out our new video for Secrets. We are beyond humbled and honored at the amount of messages, comments, support and views (2,200 and counting on day 1) that we've received.
A little backstory on Secrets: Ashley and I wrote this song shortly after releasing our first EP in March 2013. We sat down with the intention of writing a song honestly explaining why we are doing this crazy thing that we have poured our lives into for the last 4 years. Immediately upon writing the first acoustic draft of it, it was special to me. It's undergone several rewrites over the course of time, but has always been a staple song to us. When we sat down to discuss a video, we wanted something that would capture the passion and energy behind both the song and our band. A tribute, if you will, to every long night, every party, every sunrise in the middle of nowhere, and every single fan, friend, and family member we've made along the way. We are not, nor have we ever claimed to be a revolutionary band. We're not here to change the game, we're here to run naked across the field until tackled by the authorities.
I digress... There are some incredible people that we need to thank, who helped us in realizing our vision for this video, beginning with @alexwolfdoes our incredibly talented director/producer. I've personally known Alex most of my life, and there is no one I trust more when it comes to bringing our music to life. @dbgetv has been kind enough to release and promote the video for us, and they do more single handedly than anyone I know for the development of indie bands.
I could go on and on, and surely most have stopped reading by now but my point is this: all of this is pointless without you. This song and video are incredibly special to us, and we are so incredibly fortunate to have an amazing family to share it with. So, this one goes out to all of you. To the fans, friends, bands, venues, and the backseat believers:
We'll see you all in Charlotte tomorrow night. -T "We've got a good thing going and it's time to let them know."
