New Years Day Launch Video For “Half Black Heart”


New Years Day have served up the title track to their next studio album, “Half Black Heart“. A March 01st release date currently stands for the record itself. Vocalist Ash Costello commented of the song itself:

“‘Half Black Heart‘ is my anthem! The concept behind it is simple yet powerful – no one is purely one thing. Nobody is so flawless that they have the right to pass judgment on someone else’s flaws. We all exist as a mix of good and bad, innocence and guilt, a bit angelic and a bit devilish.

The message is rooted in the idea that ‘he who is without sin can cast the first stone,’ meaning that no one is in a position to judge because everyone makes mistakes. I don’t believe in the idea of a flawless human being, and this song is my way of addressing those who may expect perfection from me. Essentially, it’s a declaration that neither I nor anyone else will ever be perfect.”
