Hi guys, welcome to VENTS! How have you been?
–Great! How about you?
Can you talk to us more about your latest single “I’m Not Afraid”?
–I’m Not Afraid is a very special song to us and we’re so excited to finally share it with the world.
Did any event in particular inspire you to write this song?
–Just weeks before departing on our first U.K. tour, our guitarist Jared’s father Mark Hara suffered a fatal heart attack. Despite the devastating shock, the tour went ahead and was a great success! Jared wrote the words to I’m Not Afraid just before this tour and the rest of the song came together once we returned home.
How was the film experience?
–The filming of this music video was a very special experience for all of us. We collected a lot of footage to go with our new single and gave creative control to our good friend Robyn (director of Fast Lane and Gotta Wake You Up). He ended up putting together a beautiful collage perfectly illustrating both how and why the song I’m Not Afraid came to be.
How was the recording and writing process?
