The Number Twelve Looks Like You Debut “Raised And Erased” Music Video


The Number Twelve Looks Like You have debuted a music video for their new single, “Raised And Erased“. This track finds Eric Nally of Foxy Shazam fame guesting and is taken from the band’s new album, “Wild Gods“, out September 20th. The Number Twelve Looks Like You vocalist Jesse Korman had the following to say of the track:

“Our days are numbered. For our next single I wanted to revisit that time tested message, about time itself, and how we use it. It’s a story we’ve all heard before, and most likely ignored. For many of us, no matter how much we see the signs, we remain in denial, and continue to waste our lives repeating the same patterns time and time again until we’ve been emotionally or physically… erased. I wanted to touch on the aspirational aspect of that, and the fact that anyone has the ability to get out of a cycle of mediocrity and waste.

When writing the song I drew inspiration from countless places, including many historic figures. Larger than life icons who became immortal in our imaginations, Martin Luther King, Walt Disney, Steve Jobs, so many others. People who came from nothing and changed the world. Of course, we’ve all heard these names and struggle to see a part of ourselves in them. But we are in them. We all have to start somewhere.

I grew up quite poor in Jersey City, NJ, my mother an immigrant and my father dying young. We came from almost nothing. I was bullied and bitter and knew I didn’t want the same life as everyone else. The expectations taken for granted were suffocating and uninspiring, ‘do well in school, do what everyone else does, get a job.’ I just didn’t want it. I dropped out of high school when I was 16 and started a band at 17.

That journey has taken me across the world and changed my life in ways I never could have imagined. I met SO many friends along the way, people that mirrored those long dead icons of the past but were living and breathing, pushing forward right now.”
