Thousand Below have premiered a new video for their new version of “Chemical.” This version of the track features Sumner Peterson (Dead Lakes) and it can be found on the band’s latest EP “Let Go Of Your Love.”
Bassist Josh Billimoria commented:
“When we wrote the original version of ‘chemical,’ it was one of the first songs we built from scratch with electronic instruments and production instead of coming up with guitar parts and adding the production after. This version takes that idea even farther and strips out all the guitars completely. I spent the first few weeks of quarantine just messing around with sounds and trying to put a new spin on the song but still keep the same vibe.
We got our good friend Sumner Peterson from the band Dead Lakes to sing on the bridge since we absolutely love his voice and the emotion he brings to every track. He even wrote a totally new part for the bridge that takes the song to a whole new level.”
Thousand Below have premiered a new video for their song “171 xo.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Gone In Your Wake.“
James Deberg commented:
“‘171 xo‘ has been a personal favorite of ours since we finished recording ‘Gone In Your Wake‘ and it has grown into one of our favorite songs to play live. We talked to some length about having this song be one of the lead singles, but we ultimately felt the other three songs we chose showcased the diversity of the album better.”
“This song is about the stage in a relationship that sometimes happens after you split up — where it seems things have finally ended once and for all, but you still occasionally see one another. It’s about the hopeless phase of denial that this stage ultimately becomes in which other people have come in between you and the person you love, but you both still have feelings you are trying to suppress from one another.
I wanted to capture the frustration of having someone surface back into your life as only a fraction of the part of your world they used to be, and the frustration that comes from someone you love only making you a priority when other people in their life have hurt them and they wish to feel something safe again.”
“The ‘Killed And Born Again‘ tour that began this February was such an amazing experience and it was the first time we played ‘171 xo‘ live. The song got such a great reaction from the crowd and has such good energy that we felt we had to do a music video for it. We filmed the music video on a day of the KABA tour before the show with some very talented friends of ours and we think it came out great.”
Thousand Below have premiered a new video for their new song “Disassociate.” This track is from the band’s new album “Gone In Your Wake,“ which will be released on October 11.
The group commented:
“‘Disassociate‘ is a song about the common lapse of emotional and mental attachment to your immediate surroundings or present place in life as a result of traumatic experience or depression. It’s about that feeling we know all-too-well where you feel alone in a crowded room, no matter who you’re surrounded by; be it friends, family, or co-workers.
It’s about the frustration of feeling so detached from your current place in the world that you feel you barely cast a shadow in the room at all. We’ve all been through this — we’ve all felt this at some point in time for one reason or the other. We wanted to capture that feeling in a heavier, high tempo, and more chaotic song than we’ve ever written before.”

The band commented:
“‘Chemical‘ is about real affection and attraction towards someone becoming a chemical part of your body and existence. When you lose that person, the chemical imbalance that occurs from not having them in your life shakes up everything in your body and things just go haywire. We wanted the video to show the push and pull nature of this type of relationship/attraction and how much chaos it can put into your life. It can change you into someone you’re not and do almost supernatural things to your state of mind.”
“The track ‘Vein‘ is the one song on the record that focuses mainly on the coping mechanism of drug abuse in my own life as well as how it affected and even defeated many people close to me. Ketamine drug abuse is ultimately what led to the suicide of my best friend.”
“Not only did drug abuse lead to the loss of my friend and harm my own life to a certain degree, but my girlfriend who was living with me at the exact time of the loss relapsed on heroin as a reaction to the suicide. [She] immediately fell out of my life that very month, which only led to the weight on my shoulders that was drug abuse affecting my loved ones.”
