Vesta Collide‘s new record, New Obsession, is one that metalcore fans (we included) are absolutely enamored with. The band just premiered a music video for the third track on the record, “I Can’t Sleep.” You can check out the brand new music video, along with a brief explanation of it by the band, right here!
Why did you choose to do a music video for “I Can’t Sleep”?
We chose to do a video for “I Can’t Sleep” because we feel it’s a very strong song and a good representation of what to expect from New Obsession.
What do you hope fans get out of the song?
We hope that fans can relate to the song in someway, as it is lyrically universal. It’s dark and something everyone can relate to at some point in their lives because there is always a point where you don’t feel good enough or want something that you can’t have.
What’s the most meaningful lyric in this song (to you) and why?
The most meaningful lyric from “I Can’t Sleep” to me is a very simple line that asks, “Am I dead to you?” Because sometimes you just feel like a ghost to the ones that mean everything to you.
