Metalcore heavyweights-in-the-making TheCityIsOurs have just released a video for their song ‘Don’t Wait For Me’, the new choice of single from their upcoming album, ‘Low’.
Directed by Oli Duncanson, the video is almost completely consumed in teal, with plenty of choreography courtesy of Laura Howes and Tom Connelly.
Guitarist/vocalist Mikey Page had this to say about the track.
“‘Don’t Wait For Me’ was written about a relationship that was incredibly toxic. We wanted to highlight the effects that relationships of this nature can have. Toxicity in these scenarios is horrible for all those involved, but there is still a general stigma that often men are at fault within these relationships or they should just ‘suck it up’ and get on with it, and even though it isn’t widely spoken about, we’re just as vulnerable… We wanted to juxtapose the lyrical message with the music, to symbolise this stigma. On the surface, this track has a feel-good vibe, but if you dig deeper, you’ll uncover something far more vulnerable.”

The band’s debut studio album, ‘Low’, is set for self-release on August 2nd 2019.
