It’s been four years since we played a live show and want to pick up right where we left off. We can’t wait to see your sweaty faces in the crowd!”

Yesterday, Blessthefall revealed the music video for their brand new song “Wake the Dead.” The track, released via Rise Records, is the band’s new piece of material in five years. In a social media post for the video, the band promised that there is “more to come.”
“To all the fans – we’ve seen you and heard you over the last five years,” said Bokan. “We’re back and this one’s for you. ‘Wake the Dead’ has all the elements that define our band. We took our time writing it but didn’t overthink. We wanted the first song to melt your faces from the beginning and drag you to the end without slowing down. We hope you love it as much as we do.”
Blessthefall released their sixth studio album Hard Feelings in March of 2018.
