Wear Your Wounds

Wear Your Wounds Premiere “Rust On The Gates Of Heaven” Music Video


Wear Your Wounds, the collective spearheaded by Converge vocalist Jake Bannon, have unveiled the below Max Moore directed (Code Orange, Knocked Loose) music video for the title track to their new album, “Rust On The Gates Of Heaven“.

The band also feature Cave In‘s Adam McGrath, The Red Chord‘s Mike McKenzie, Twitching TonguesSean Martin and Chris Maggio (ex-Trap Them). A July 12th has been set for this new record on Deathwish Inc. with pre-orders for it now live at this location.

Bannon himself views the record as the band coming into its own, offering “In some ways ‘Rust On The Gates Of Heaven‘ is the first proper Wear Your Wounds album.”

He continued:

“Since this lineup of the band was assembled, so much has happened within all of our lives. We weave much of that into this album, consciously and unconsciously. Specifically, the song ‘Rust On The Gates Of Heaven‘ is about personal pain and accepting it for what it is. That theme surfaces within much of the album — how it may paralyze us, but can also set us free.

I like to think that every piece of creativity we put out into the world in reaction to it has the potential to make a pinhole into what we perceive as impenetrable darkness. The sum of those tiny holes can bring light and perspective to one’s life.

Maybe the noise we made here can be a beacon to others and help them in some way. Whether it by personally connecting with them or motivating them to put their own voice into the world. It’s all a positive if it leads you to a way out of whatever you may be in.”
