Adrian Patrick commented:

“Everybody is going through shit—whether macro and socio-economic or with their relationships. We needed to present it all in a bigger picture. At the same time, it’s fun—which is why we came up with this Gawdzillionaire character who’s present in us and all around us. Who controls us from within? Who plays the game we’re a part of? That’s the Gawdzillionaire. We are the type of people who will not give up on the message. It has been instilled in us by our immigrant parents. We’re not going to give up on fighting the good fight.”

You can find a lyric video for “New Way To Hate” from the record below. Patrick added the following about that:

“‘New Way To Hate’ is confronting the divisiveness of our current socio-political landscape in the world. Largely in part to the slanted approach of mainstream media. Fear is the tactic, and unity is the enemy.”

Otherwise Premiere “Exit Wound” Music Video

Otherwise have premiered a new video for their new song “Exit Wound.” This track is expected to appear on the band’s upcoming album.

Singer Adrian Patrick commented:

“I’d be lying if I said I’ve never sat at the end of my bed with a bottle of whiskey in one hand and a pistol in the other. The toll that life can take on you can be unbearable at times…but the beauty is in pushing through it, persevering so that others can draw strength from you. Your fate may already be written, so live your life like you’re gonna die tomorrow… live your life like a fucking Exit Wound.”

Guitarist Ryan Patrick added:

“This life can be a complete mind fuck. I’ve dealt with depression and doubt for many years. ‘Exit Wound,’ to me, represents standing up, dusting the dirt off, and wearing my scars proudly. It is ok to not be ok. It is ok to talk about it. Just don’t give up, and turn the volume way up in the meantime.”</blockquote

Otherwise Pay Tribute To Las Vegas Raiders With New Song “Silver And Black”

Otherwise are paying tribute to the Las Vegas Raiders with a new song titled “Silver And Black.” That track will appear on the band’s upcoming EP “Defiance.” Adrian Patrick commented:

“Growing up in Las Vegas, we never had our own professional sports team. So, for a lot us football fans, the closest thing was our second west coast home: Los Angeles. The Raiders have always been known as the ‘bad boys’ of the NFL and we can totally relate with that, from a rock ‘n’ roll perspective. My first starter brand ball cap was a Raiders hat and anyone who is a huge fan of N.W.A. (like we are), knows how cool that cap made me feel as a kiddo! With all of the illustrious musical artists that call Vegas home, we’d love to be the first to present our new hometown team with their un/official anthem: ‘Silver And Black’. With arms open and horns up, we welcome the Raider Nation to our beloved Sin City… just win, baby!”

Otherwise Premiere “Crossfire” Music Video

Otherwise have premiered a new video for their song “Crossfire.” This track is from their latest album “Defy.”

Adrian Patrick commented:

“One of the hardest things we’ve ever had to do, as performing artists, was cancel our Defy Division Tour. It’s left us wondering how we’ll be able to feed our families, if we’ll still even have a career after this; we know that millions of others across the globe are facing the same dire prospect. Yet it’s not just jobs & money that we are losing… people are fighting for their lives, right now. The whole world has been caught in the Crossfire. We never thought we’d live to see the heartbreaking day when the bright lights & dancing fountains are turned off in the Neon Desert. But we are all in this together so let’s keep our heads down low & hopes up high, for humanity. This pandemic doesn’t discriminate… and neither does rock n roll. Stay safe, stay home, stay strong.”

Otherwise Premiere “Lifted” Music Video

Otherwise have premiered a new video for their song “Lifted.” This track is from the band’s new album “Defy,” which will be released on November 8.

Adrian Patrick said the following about the video:

“Making the video for ‘Lifted’ was perhaps the most fun we’ve ever had filming! The locale was absolutely stunning (thanks to Patten Title Group), the vehicles and girls were drop-dead gorgeous, but the best part was having our family and friends there to celebrate with us; even our mom stopped by for a few! The director and his team did a phenomenal job putting it all together; the final product came out over the top and zany AF, which is exactly what we wanted… We can’t wait for this silly beast to get released so the world can get ‘Lifted’ with us!”

He also added the following about the song:

“[It’s] about getting fucked up, alcohol, and drugs… it got me kicked off tours and banned from festivals. It’s about all of the same shit that got me trouble, and the label thought it was the best single to lead with. It’s fun. I’ve been the guy the song is about. I’ve lived that life. I’ve been there. It’s real.”

Otherwise Premiere New Songs “Lifted” & “Bad Trip”

Otherwise have premiered two new songs, “Lifted” and “Bad Trip.” These tracks are from the band’s new album “Defy,” which will be released on November 8.

Singer Adrian Patrick said the following about the songs:

“[‘Lifted’ is] about getting fucked up…it got me kicked off tours and banned from festivals. It’s about all of the shit that got me trouble. I’ve been the guy the song is about. I’ve lived that life. I’ve been there. It’s real.”

“[‘Bad Trip’] serves as a commentary on the current nebulous state of affairs we find ourselves mired in as a nation…as human beings on this planet.”

He also added the following about the album:

“We grew up in the last era where nineties bands were soul rebels. They stood for something. Since the greatest risks yield the greatest return, why play it safe? In between the last album and now, we changed everything. I had two sons, and it took their births for me to go, ‘Fuck it, we’ve got to shoot for the goddamned stars.'”

“It’s a new chapter all around, and we’re fired up about it. Matt [Good] is the most creative, prolific producer we’ve ever worked with. He’s the kind of guy we’ve always wanted in our corner.”

“When you listen to the record, I hope you go, ‘I did not expect that’. It’s personal. This is my fucking life. There’s no turning back. This band is the future of my family. It means everything to me — and all of us. This is Otherwise.”

Otherwise Premiere “Angry Heart” Music Video

Otherwise have premiered a new video for “Angry Heart,” via Loudwire. This song is from their new album “Sleeping Lions,” which was released today (September 22). The track listing for that can be found at the bottom of this post.

Frontman Adrian Patrick commented:

“The concept for the video of ‘Angry Heart’ is specifically constructed around the lyric line: ‘So who is all bite and who is all bark? The Wolf of Light or the Wolf of Dark?’ I gave our director, Mike Watts, some insight into my own struggles with anger and alcohol, and trying to find a balance between my new life as a family man and my lifelong musical mission. He devised this brilliant, provocative storyline that serves as an analogy for my inner battles… do I follow the overwhelming love for my family and give up on the fire of my passion, or vice versa? Having the entire band act in the video itself helped to capture the authenticity of our plight. The video is a powerfully honest piece and it feels good to be so proud of it.”
