Unleash The Archers Share “Acoustipex” Playthrough Video

Unleash The Archers have shared a playthrough video for an acoustic version of their song “Apex.” The updated take on the song, which is called “Acoustipex,” will serve as the title track of a new two-song EP that will be included with the fifth anniversary deluxe edition of their 2017 album “Apex.” That effort will be released on November 18.

Singer Brittney Slayes commented:

“We are so excited to share ‘Acoustipex’ with you all; it’s a moody acoustic take on the title track from Apex and we hope you enjoy listening to it as much as we enjoyed creating it! It’s got a bit of a country vibe, but we added some symphonic elements as well to stay true to the synth theme of the record.

The music video was a challenge because we all live in different cities now, but we had a great time coming up with a concept we think you might appreciate. For those of you that have seen our acoustic version of ‘Apex’ on YouTube from CTV, you will understand where our inspiration came from lol 😉 Make sure to get your pre-orders for the EP in now before they’re all gone, and let us know what you think!”

To start, we are going to replace the five shows that were cancelled in September (Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit, Pittsburgh and Rochester) and are super excited to add some additional dates in Canada and the surrounding U.S. as well.

Unleash The Archers Premiere “Legacy” Lyric Video

Unleash The Archers have premiered a lyric video for their song “Legacy.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Abyss.”

Brittney Slayes commented:

“This song means a lot to us as a band, it’s pretty different from everything that we’ve done before and really set the tone for the sonic exploration that is Abyss. When Andrew first brought the intro riff to us we immediately loved it, but we were a little hesitant as we felt our fans might not understand why we were choosing to include this style of track on the album. The hesitation was momentary though, as we all very quickly decided it was too cool not to continue writing, and luckily it seems like our fans have fallen in love with it as well. It’s quite theatrical, and yet somehow very simplistic as well.”

“When it came time to choose the next song for a music video, ‘Legacy’ was the resounding winner, but we wanted to do something a bit more than the traditional lyric video. The band all agreed that this is the kind of track that you put on when you’re commuting, when you’re wandering through the city just vibin’, when you’re on that long bus ride or skytrain ride staring out the window at the world passing by… So that’s what this video is. It’s you hanging out in our heads as we walk the streets of Vancouver, traveling towards something, or away from something, but always moving forward. We hope ‘Legacy’ can be your soundtrack to those everyday moments in life, when you’ve finally put the phone away to really look around and enjoy the beauty of the world that surrounds you. We genuinely hope it can be a small light in this seemingly never ending darkness, even just for a moment.”

Unleash The Archers Premiere “Faster Than Light” Video

Unleash The Archers have premiered a new video for their song “Faster Than Light.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Abyss.”

Brittney Slayes commented:

“Being that this song is about racing off into the far corners of space, we thought it would be a fun idea to actually race each other in the music video to see which one of us was truly ‘Faster Than Light’! Of course we had to have some fun with it though, and added a little bit of excitement into the mix. Our director mentioned an older Stephen King novel called The Long Walk as inspiration for a way to spice up the video and we all agreed it would be hilarious! Check out the plot synopsis on Wikipedia if you haven’t read it already… This track has turned into a favourite of the band and we knew it had to be a single the moment the finished product was in our hands. It’s fast, fun, and is going to be an absolute blast to play live!”
