"Don't Be Afraid" is a unique take on the band's life on the road, and journey as an up-and-coming artist. Spiritual Rez has been recording and touring extensively for 9 years and has affirmed what it takes to bring it to the top: Not have any fear.
Travelling so much for music can take an unbelievable toll on relationships, morale, creativity and more but: "Don't Be Afraid" tells us that moving up slowly isn't a negative - it should be a strength that we as a group have such support in our Spiritual Rez Family to make it this far, and this long. The video showcases many of the people and places we go that have taken us in and lifted us up - Which is why we do what we do: To bring you good people uplifting music.
Apocalypse Whenever is more true to who we are as a band than anything else we've produced. By including the jam sections that we perform live, it showcases the bands ability to play with energy; building and dropping the intensity.
Over the course of four albums, we've honed our ability to self-produce content. This album is the closest we've come to capturing the true vibe of Spiritual Rez. Being hands on and in control of every element of the production, we have the freedom to create the art we want. From the writing all the way to the mixing it's our vision. We love that.
While writing and conceptualizing the record, we locked ourselves in a room and created as a group. Our intention was to produce a record that was interesting from beginning to end. Musically, thematically, conceptually and tonally we wanted to create a cohesive piece of art that took the audience on a journey through the modern era. Apocalypse Whenever is intended to inspire listeners not to fear the end times or the drastic changes in society. Instead, we want to encourage the them to enjoy the precious time we have on this earth without worrying about tomorrow. We're confident that we achieved our goal and people will enjoy this record for years to come.
