Conquer Divide Return With New Single “Chemicals”

Conquer Divide have officially returned with a new single titled “Chemicals.” You can find a video for that track below:

Guitarist Kristen Sturgis told Revolver the following:

“We know everyone’s been dying to hear what we’ve been up to, and the short answer is that we had just taken a bit of a break to focus on our personal lives. We had a lot of time to reflect on what direction we wanted to go in next. I think, collectively, our musical tastes have all evolved. We still wanted to feel heavy and anthemic, but it was important for us to step outside of our comfort zone moving forward.”

“‘Chemicals‘ is about addiction from the perspective of an artist. More often than not, addiction can get swept under the rug or is almost encouraged in some circumstances by the people who are the closest to the the person who is addicted. Sometimes, being on the road can be the absolute worst place for an artist struggling with addiction, yet they are encouraged to keep going.

Those around them don’t always see or read the signs and we end up losing so many talented musicians to overdoses or mental health issues that frequently accompany addiction. This happens everywhere, from rock and metal music to the highest echelons of pop. This song talks about how you can turn a blind eye, but at the end of the day, that makes you part of the problem.”

“For the music video, we wanted to show that through textures. You see the artist performing at the top of their game, but there is clearly something going on beneath the surface. They are going through the motions, but they are a shell of their former selves where the addiction has taken over to the point it’s impossible to ignore visually. But others choose to pretend everything is normal.

Our director Jeb Hardwick did an awesome job with that, and I can’t speak highly enough of his work and work ethic. This was our first video in front of a green screen and it was a really cool experience. Since we all have to fly to a central location when we got together — as we are scattered across the U.S. and Canada — we were very lucky to be able to film it before the pandemic hit.”

Vocalist Kiarely Castillo added:

“Sometimes the public or even some who are in the inner circle may love a ‘good storyline’ more than anything else, like someone’s well-being. For example, with the line, ‘Sell my soul, tie it up and hope it don’t make a sound,’ it’s a reference to my image selling, but my soul is irrelevant because everyone cares about image first.

I was inspired by Max Bemis, who wrote several amazing albums for Say Anything and recently resigned because he felt like fans only liked him when he was unwell and no one liked his music when he was sober. There are many ways to interpret this song. The most important thing is that fans connect to it and it helps them in whatever way works for them. What it means to me is different from what it means to other people and I feel like that’s the whole point.”

Conquer Divide Premiere “What’s Left Inside” Music Video

Conquer Divide have premiered a new video for their song “What’s Left Inside,” via Revolver. This song is from their self-titled debut, which is available now.

Kristen Waters said the following:

“‘What’s Left Inside‘ is a song about the broken relationship I had growing up with my father. He was verbally abusive, and super hard on me growing up. He would commonly insinuate directly or indirectly that I wasn’t good enough or wouldn’t make it, wouldn’t graduate college, etc. And we still have a messed up relationship to this day.

The song is essentially 15 years of pent-up anger I got out in about 10 minutes. It’s actually the fastest song I ever wrote. Needless to say, I graduated college and made it farther than he did with music (he was a drummer in a band at my age). The song is cathartic for me and turning a negative situation into something positive.”
