The Warriors have premiered a new video for their new song “The Painful Truth.” This track features Parkway Drive’s Winston McCall and it will appear on the band’s new album “Monomyth“ (out December 13).
The Warriors commented:
“‘The Painful Truth‘ was the first song written and recorded for ‘Monomyth‘. We wanted to throw all convention out the window and push the boundaries of our creativity in every respect, while still honoring the ‘old’ Warriors sound. In a sense, this song was the foundation upon which the rest of the album was built.
In this early stage of the writing process, we had every intention of recording and releasing this music ourselves, free of any external influence or expectations. We’re so grateful that Pure Noise ultimately raised their hand to help us with this release. They gave us all the freedom we needed to make this happen.”
“Lyrically, the song addresses the need to burn our egos to the ground and to rise up with a full heart—to unshackle ourselves and to have the courage to fulfill our dreams. Climb that mountain, read that book, write that song, reconnect. Exercise patience, compassion, civility and love. Ultimately, it comes down to the old aphorism, ‘Know Thyself.’ Reject the ‘beautiful lie’. Suffer the ‘painful truth’ in order to make personal transformation. Never forget how powerful you really are.”
