Invent Animate have premiered a new double feature music video featuring the songs from their newly released EP “The Sun Sleeps, As If It Never Was.“ You can watch that below:
Drummer Trey Celaya commented:
“‘The Sun Sleeps, As If It Never Was‘ is a story of two interconnected perspectives of addiction, the afflicted, and the innocent. The afflicted is increasingly consumed by his vices, distracted, and secretive, and ultimately distorts his connection with his loved one, leaving only fractured memories in place of the love they once had.
These lyrics are based on a true story surrounding my family’s history with addiction, and with these songs, I wanted to bring to light how subtle the signs are and how severe the damage can be when these dark secrets stay buried. The importance of perspective has been my biggest takeaway from all of this turmoil, and sadly, most addicts fall into addiction with a spirit of naivety, thinking it will cost them nothing.
If you are the afflicted, consider the cost of losing everything you love and hold dear. If you are the innocent, consider the cost of enabling your loved ones. It is not loving, and it is not too late for recovery.”
