Metalcore troupe Conquer Divide have shared a video for their new song, ‘Messy’, directed by Brad Golowin.
Guitarist Kristin Sturgis had this to say about it.
“‘Messy’ is song about being in a toxic relationship and wondering how and when it got to that point. I think most of us have been in a similar situation at one time or another. It’s difficult when you’re on the road unable to see your significant other — away for months at a time. But I imagine it’s more difficult for the ones who are left at home. On the road, you’ve at least got your bandmates.
I think the important takeaway to this song is to know your worth, whether that is in friendships, romantic relationships, or work life. It’s easy to get complacent in a toxic environment. You think you’re better off walking on eggshells than being alone. But at some point you wake up and realize it’s taking a toll on your mental health. So there needs to be a fundamental change in your relationship or change in your environment. It’s easier said than done, though.”

At the time of writing, it’s uncertain whether or not the track will feature on a yet-to-be-announced EP or album, or if it’ll remain as a stand alone single.
