Boundaries Premiere “Realize And Rebuild” Music Video

Boundaries have premiered a new video for their new song “Realize And Rebuild.” This track is from the band’s new album “Burying Brightness,” which will be released on October 14.

Matthew McDougal commented:

“Most of the record is about one person I sadly watched lose himself. On ‘Realize And Rebuild‘ I’m coming to terms with regretting how our relationship was and how to now move forward. It’s very easy to be like, ‘If only I knew what I know now, it could’ve been better.’ The song is about internally addressing the fact ‘wasted time is just wasted time.’

I could sit around and keep thinking about it, but I found solidarity on my own. I now understand the situation he was in, and I didn’t get it before. I was too young and too naive, addiction is a nightmare and it took him from me.

It’s too late to do anything for that relationship. Looking back I realize when he was calling at three in the morning to talk about nothing, it was his way to look for comfort, of reaching out. I can keep it in mind going forward while trying to not lose and let down more loved ones.”

Frontman Matthew McDougal said the following about the album, which features backing vocals from drummer Tim Sullivan and bassist Nathan Calcagno:

“We utilized their voices for the first time. There’s definitely a new dynamic. We focused on writing some choruses. We made it a little prettier and calmer, changing up the listening experience. We wanted to use all of the tools we have at our disposal on this record. We didn’t leave anything out.”

Guitarist Corey Emond added:

“Our goal is to write exactly the kinds of songs we want to with no barriers. I feel like we did that. We’ve always wanted to have songs with singing, but we were never able to capture it until now. We also have some of the heaviest songs we’ve ever written. It has both extremes.”

An official music video for the effort’s first single, “Heaven’s Broken Heart,” can be found below. McDougal added the following about that:

“‘Heaven’s Broken Heart‘ is one part allegory and one part fantasy. It tells a story of vengeance and punishment from a god that has become too ashamed of life on earth to let it continue. It started as purely a conceptual song and eventually formed into more of a parable on my mood disorders and how suddenly they can surround and darken a person’s world.

The opening line ‘night falls fast’ being a reference to the book of the same name by Kay Redfield Jamison, which details years of research towards understanding how and why we as people commit suicide. Meanwhile lyrics like ‘shale skinned monsters’ make reference to golems and other biblical horrors that are being released on an unknowing populace destined for extinction.”
