Michigan Celtic punks The Tosspints recently released their newest album “Have You Been Drinking?” last month through East Grand Record Company. The band just published a new music video for their song, “Soldiers Heart”, which appears on the new release. Here’s what singer/songwriter Don Zuzula had to say about the track,
I chose the song because it’s a reoccurring theme in the album, and the video is based heavily on the day in the life of a vet with PTSD, the constant reminders, the flashbacks, the feeling like you don’t fit into society anymore. The alcohol is actually a symptom of the disorder, myself and a number of my friends with the disorder really struggle with most of the things that were presented in the video. The depression and the longing for going back to the last time in your life that you felt like you fit in, the combat lifestyle where everything really was black and white and you were driven by survival instinct rather than normal, rational thought and emotion, there is even an inability to have positive emotions after a while due to physical changes in the parts of the brain that create those things. I think I managed to touch on all of it.
