As you should already be aware of by now, Southern California-based hardcore punks Stay Wild are three weeks away from releasing a brand new EP, livelearnlove, through Panic State Records (street date: June 24th).
Today, we’re stoked to premier the a brand new video from that very album. It’s for a track called “Victim/Champion,” and you can check the video out below.
Here’s what the band has to say about the song:
“It’s strange how often I personally think of this song. Not in a conceited manner, but as reassurement for myself. It reminds me that I have control over my life, helps me stay motivated and keeps me from getting hung up on my mistakes and uncertainty. Everyone experiences their own hardships in life. Failure, hopelessness, depression, anxiety, stress and so on. Sometimes it’s hard to live without understanding who you are, why you’re here, why you do what you do and what you will go on to do.Victim/Champion is about positivity and hope, enduring those tribulations and adapting to what you’re left with. If an experience completely shatters you, try to build a better you with the pieces and let it remind you that can always overcome adversity. It’s not always easy, but what options do you have?”
The livelearnlove EP is the follow up to Stay Wild’s last EP, Pacemaker. If you like what you hear, stay tuned for livelearnlove pre-order details as they become available, and check out the band’s upcoming tour dates below the video.
