Malevolence Release New Video Featuring Bryan Garris From Knocked Loose
If you’re in need of an explosive hardcore kick up the arse, Sheffield bruisers Malevolence have got you covered with the new video for Keep Your Distance. And, because they aren’t already aggy enough, it features Knocked Loose frontman Bryan Garris.
Explaining the meaning behind the song, the band say it’s about doing what it takes to move onward and upward.
“Keep Your Distance encompasses the difficulty in making the decision to cut off those around you that bring nothing positive to your life,” they say. “It was written about positive aggression; having the strength to remove and liberate yourself from any negative influence that you see fit — a sentiment that we believe everyone can relate to.”
The video itself was captured when the band toured with Knocked Loose at the end of last year, when Bryan’s contribution was still fresh out of the box. It was the perfect opportunity to “collect as much crazy footage as we could”.
“Since the song is short and sweet, we wanted a high energy video that would truly capture the vibe and chaotic nature of our live performances,” they explain. “Bryan hit the studio to record his part a day or two before the tour started and jumped on stage to sing it with us every night with immediate effect.”
The track is taken from Malevolence’s new EP, The Other Side, out April 24. Get your copy here.
