UK metal band SHVPES have shared a video for their track “Skin & Bones.”
The song is lifted from the band’s debut full length album, PAIN. JOY. ECSTASY. DESPAIR., out now via Search And Destory/Spinefarm.
“This song is about maintaining your integrity when you’re surrounded by people who are trying to diminish it,” explains front-man Griffin Dickinson. “It’s taken from my time at school, where it seemed that being in any way different to the ‘norm’ meant you were ostracised and ridiculed for your differences. This song is both in recognition of how much it got to me, plus a reminder to never let that mentality take hold of me again.”
“The video represents someone who feels like an alien in their surroundings, alone & encircled by people who take them as some sort of gimmick, but they do their own thing regardless.”
You can watch the video below.
