The new video for Disturbed’s latest single “A Reason To Fight” is likely to resonate with many.
Embedded below, the video provides an emotional visual for those fighting substance addiction and how it affects those around them.
In a statement on the song, frontman David Draiman said, “The message behind ‘A Reason To Fight’ is a personal one. We’ve all seen people that we care about fall victim to addiction. Dan [Donegan] sent me a rough idea for the song and it hit home particularly hard.
In his own statement, Donegan said, “I know people who’ve battled addiction and have seen it in their face—the shame they have—feeling they’ve let themselves and others down. We wanted to write a song with a positive message for people in that situation to stay hopeful and not give up the fight, as challenging as it may be. It’s an everyday struggle, but there can also be a light at the end of the tunnel.”
“A Reason To Fight” can be found on Disturbed’s seventh studio album, Evolution, which comes out October 19. It’s currently available for pre-order here.
