    Nations Afire: I Am an Army- This is the official music video for "I am an army" from Nations Afire's debut record "The Ghosts We Will Become" due out summer 2012.

    Nations Afire are a four piece band that features current and former members of some of the most influential punk and hardcore bands from the past decade. Guitarist Chris Chasse has an impressive resume that includes a tenure with Rise Against (Siren Song of the Counter Culture '04 and The Sufferer & the Witness '06). Vocalist/guitarist Nik Hill and bassist Brett Rasmussen are both long standing members of the Orange County hardcore outfit Ignite and drummer Todd Hennig was the percussive force behind Death By Stereo for three albums.
    Bassist Brett Rasmussen explains the bands excitement in making their own video. "I think we have all done just about everything there is to do in regards to being in a band like; writing, recording, producing, playing live, touring and so forth, but none of us had ever made a full production video ourselves. It was a welcomed challenge and to be honest, ended up being a lot of fun!" The band called on another friend, editor Tim Lunsford, to handle the cutting of the video. We were sitting there with Tim for about an hour and he finally said "Are you guys gonna really sit here for the next 8 hours and watch me do this...get outta here, I will send you the first cut tonight" We all laughed, then left. "I really think every band should direct their own video at least once, it creates a sense of pride for the product and puts even a bigger fingerprint on your work" Rasmussen said after the completion of the video.
    Nations Afire have some local shows booked in Southern California in May/June and are in the process of booking a European tour for August.

    "I AM AN ARMY" lyrics

    Red light, catch the wheels traction
    Ignition line cuts me out too soon
    With no shame as I feel your back turn
    Under the heat of a killing moon

    And there you are, you move with such disarm
    No other one is calling

    I am an army, coming through
    I am a zombie, over you
    I can't believe it, I want it so bad
    I am an army, coming through
    I am a zombie, over you
    And if you want me, I'm yours to have

    Did you say, did you say you're sorry
    For all things that you couldn't be
    I never shy from a confrontation
    I'll never lie for the things I need

    And there we are, unearth this hallowed ground
    No other holds a candle, or fans the flame

    I am an army, coming through
    I am a zombie, over you
    I can't believe it, I want it so bad
    I am an army, coming through
    I am a zombie, over you
    And if you want me, I'm yours to have

    My senses awaken, the wanting to hear
    My own name for the first time, your sweet serenade
    I will rise with the sun and I'll fall with the sea
    Only you can replace the missing part of me

    I am an army, coming through
    I am a zombie, over you
    I can't believe it, I want it so bad
    I am an army, coming through
    I am a zombie, over you
    And if you want me, I'm yours to have

    I am an army
    I am a zombie
    I can't believe it
    It's all I am Show less
