The Almost (Underoath) Premiere “Chokehold” Music Video

The Almost, the band featuring Underoath’s Aaron Gillespie, have premiered a new video for their new song “Chokehold.” This track is from the group’s new album “Fear Caller,” which will be released on October 18.

Gillepsie said the following about the new song:

“It’s a story of my childhood that really comes apart in the bridge discussing my father. The song essentially explains how I got to be the way I am. I need the chokehold to succeed. It’s one of my favorite songs I’ve ever written.”

He also talked about the new album:

“It’s where I am as a person. I’m continually striving to be more honest in terms of my feelings, my music, and how I deal with things. I’m talking about each subject as a vignette. The stories are individual experiences. It’s truly the most honest I’ve ever been in songs.”

He also added that the desert helped inspire the record:

“I have a romantic affinity for the desert. There are so many untold stories and hidden truths. The beginning of our thoughts and existence as a people happened out there. For me, it was a cathartic experience. It’s something I’ve never done. I needed to get out there with the ghosts and see what would happen.”
