"PRESSURES RELEASE CHAOTIC NEW SINGLE “DARK GLOW”"

Hard-hitting Canadian trio PRESSURES has released their energized new video/track for “Dark Glow.” “Dark Glow” is a culmination of explosive instrumentals, piercing screams, and melodic vocals that have created the perfect storm for the group, and will be featured on their forthcoming album/EP. Through lyrics such as, “I tried to be perfect, but you weren’t worth it,” the group emphasizes the feelings of not being good enough, but ultimately finding comfort in who you are.

“‘Dark Glow’ is about going through the emotions of living up to someone else’s expectations but never feeling good enough,” the group shares of the single. “The story in the song develops into a realization of living up to something not meant for you is not worth it.”

“Dark Glow” is a particularly monumental release for the group as it marks their first single since their debut EP Amaliia. During the writing and recording process of their debut, the group suffered the loss of former vocalists Kyle and JD, which has inspired the group to continue releasing and putting an emphasis on the message of their music.

After their loss, the band worked closely with vocal producer Wes Will who was able to provide a key understanding of their sound. Eventually, the group found its final form with Wes joining the group as their lead vocalist and currently consists of Jake Porterfield, Jesse Moreau, Wes Will, and Kyle Adshade. While the coinciding video for “Dark Glow” is simple, it highlights PRESSURES’ effortless charisma with one another and the track’s message as the focal point of the release.

The “Dark Glow” music video was filmed by Doug Meadows, while he also took on the mix of the track. The track was written by Jake Porterfield and Jesse Moreau, and mastered by Tyler Smyth - High Road Publicity

"NEW HEAVY TUNES FROM SPIRITWAKER, SOMBER SKIES, DIE ANOTHER DAY, PRESSURES, AND LONG LIVE THE LIGHTS!"

We hear many stories of struggles bands undergo on their journey to getting their names out there. Canadian metalcore band, Pressures is no different. With the personal losses of two of their vocalists in the midst of recording their debut EP, Amaliia (both who have contributed their stories lyrically), the remaining members of Pressures were inspired to continue to create music and touch down on tough topics. Like honoring what the former members would have wanted.



Their single “Dark Glow” sounds like it is about being in the state of rumination and eventually being fed up while in a relationship from hell, then breaking free from it. The raw emotion in the vocals and instrumentally in the song progression, down to the breakdown.. this is one of those songs you can sing along to if you relate and get your feelings right out! - That Chick Krys

"Pressures Release New Single 'Time Bomb'"

Three-piece Canadian unit PRESSURES has returned with their all-new, hard-hitting video/track for "Time Bomb," their second single of the year following the success of "Dark Glow." The glitched-out track is an explosion of the group's dynamic and intricate instrumentation, highlighting vocalist JD Meeboer's prowess growls, and melodic delivery.

The group shares of "Time Bomb," "The feeling of something toxic in your life pulling you down and clouding your mind, but at the same time feeling guilty and hopeless that this is the only path to take. The song takes you on a journey of what it would feel like to try to break away from a never-ending tug of war within yourself."

Through electrifying visuals that include strobe effects, blurred segments, and clear shots of Meeboer singing, the video for "Time Bomb" symbolizes the central theme of the track and acts as an additional chaotic character to accompany the release.
