Montreal’s SAWYER PATH is releasing the latest video for the track ‘Through The Lies’ off their 2018 album ‘Toxic Temptation’.
Sawyer Path, a band whose name comes from the character Tom Sawyer who was a wise and rebel teenager that was always looking for adventure. He understood that freedom was the principal gift of life and used this to realize his dreams. The band supports this philosophical thought that you can gain success through the freedom of doing what you love. We all have different paths in life, but it doesn’t mean that you are any less if you don’t follow the same tendencies as the majority. “Don’t go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail.“ (Ralph Waldo Emerson)
Sawyer Path was a rebirth of Sean Mackay (vocals) and Alex Samson(bass/vocals) when they teamed up with drummer Pete Richard in June 2009. Since Sean and Alex used to be in a punk rock band before, the arrival of Pete drastically changed the sound of the band.
Focused on writing catchy, alternative metalcore with heavy breakdowns and melodic riffs, they have worked together since 2009 and have released two EP’s and three LP’s. Over the years their sound has matured including the two new guitarists they gained as of their last release. SAWYER PATH explains the recent album:
“Our closest fans were pretty stoked by our new material. The two new guitarists have been working together for 15 years so they have quite a chemistry. That changed the sound of the band a bit, but it’s not too drastic and people love it so we’re very proud of this one.”
With relatable lyrical themes including relationships, addictions, failures, and achievements, SAWYER PATH makes an effort to inject their songs with feeling and passion. ‘Through The Lies’ is about a toxic relationship, and the band explains the video behind it:
“The video gives the audience a claustrophobic atmosphere with a dark tone. There is also a blue light on the left and a red light on the right to represent the contrast of love/hate like our album cover. We wanted the fans to feel a tormented sensation with the heavy riffs and dark lyrics, explaining a toxic relationship with someone you need to break away from.”
Melodic and groovy, ‘Through The Lies’ is recommended for fans of Bullet For My Valentine, Papa Roach, and I Prevail
