Attention Rock and Metal mavens; Gabriel and the Apocalypse are launching their long-awaited new single, “Blunt Force Drama,” and its accompanying music video today,August 26, 2022. Songstress Lindy Gabriel’s lyrics and guitarist Jake Lacore’s music were written during the height of the pandemic lockdown. Both felt challenged by our country’s struggles and global struggles.They found and created a sound showcasing a heavier, more musically aggressive side of Gabriel and the Apocalypse. “The music video visuals represent human conditioning and overcoming obstacles.” says vocalist Lindy Gabriel. “Though there is a small storyline, I felt the imagery was most important and what the song called for.” Using bold and fast imagery lets the viewer be led through a visual depiction of a perceived human condition. The storyline vignettes describe how easily fear spreads and how feeling both frightened and powerless challenged every one of us during these last two years. “We watched while the nation’s collective sense of health and safety was being ripped away. We celebrate seeing the resilience of our communities and our county’s perseverance in the face of hardship.” – Jake LaCore, guitarist.
