“We are very pleased to have ‘Strength of the Mind’ finally released,” said singer Jesse Leach. “It is a big moment to have this be the first listen to the album. The video visually captures a bit of the anxiety and chaos that the song touches on lyrically. It is almost a bit surreal and dream-like with the camera effects, called ‘whacking’ It is always a pleasure to work with McFarland and Pecci, as they are both artists who give it their all with no shortcuts. Watching Mike work the camera live, while Ian paces around and directs, is a very involving and creatively satisfying experience.”
Leach furthered, “We are all also very excited to have the pleasure of being on the cover of Revolver dressed as a characters from Star Wars! We had a total blast dressing up and trying not to laugh the entire time. It is such a fun cover and represents who we are as people. I am just very grateful to see the beginnings of an album cycle that I feel will define a whole new chapter for us.”
