To celebrate the announcement, the band dropped a stunning music video for the album’s debut track, “Low,” which lyrically is a reminder for anyone who needs to feel good in a relationship and worth love. The video for “Low” is a colorful representation of the band’s energetic live performance and was directed by the talented Brian Cox. As explained by guitarist Micket Woodle, “‘Low’ is about liking or wanting someone–or being with someone–and just wanting it to work.” On the upcoming release of Damned Soul, RIVALS shared this statement:
“For this album we wanted to show a darker side of who we were, show everyone what our demons looked like. We wanted to make sure that no matter what, you could see right through us.”
