Art of Dying: Jonny Hetherington (Vocals), Tavis Stanley (Guitar), Cale Gontier (Bass), and Cody Watkins (Drums) is one of those bands that has not only broken out but has grabbed the music scene by the balls. The Vancouver Hard Rock band has been hard at it, touring and putting out music non-stop, including a new video release for the song “Torn Down”. So, how did Art Of Dying manage to make a video during their busy 2016 tour? While on the road, they brought along director Davo Paul. The footage includes on and off stage tour life of the band.
“Torn Down” was inspired by a true story, which Jonny Hetherington describes as “a teenage girl, Amanda Todd, who lived near me in Vancouver. She was targeted by a sexual predator online and eventually committed suicide. It’s a very sad story that she told personally through a self-made YouTube video. Her story affected the community deeply and it hit me hard when I discovered it. I hope the lyrics in “Torn Down” will help others who are going through what seem like hopeless struggles – see a light at the end of the tunnel.”
Art Of Dying is giving fans a chance to be part of the new full-length album, which is scheduled to drop in 2017. So how can you be part of Art of Dying music? Check out their Pledge Music page.
