“The video for ‘Terrified’ is pretty much a direct interpretation of the lyrics,” explained singer Dan Marsala. “A story of a husband who is off at war, scared of the fact that he might not ever make it home to his wife and family, and a pregnant wife who is left at home, not knowing if she will ever see her husband alive again. It is an extremely touching subject because there are hundreds of thousands of families in America going through this exact scenario as we speak. It has to be one of the most terrifying situations that any family could ever experience. I think the video is a great representation of the story told in the lyrics and it is our tribute to all the families who suffer through this situation every day.”

Story Of The Year guitarist Ryan Phillips spoke with Australia’s Time Off magazine about the St. Louis group’s third album ‘The Black Swan’, which sees the band strike a balance between the divergent sounds of their first two records. “The main difference between this record and the last one is that some of the songs on it are definitely a lot more similar to songs our first record,” Phillips explained. “On this new record there’s some stuff that’s heavier than anything we’ve ever done – the opening track ‘Choose Your Fate’ is the heaviest song we’ve ever recorded. But at the same time there’s tracks that are a lot like the first record, so this record falls in the middle of ‘Page Avenue’ and ‘In The Wake Of Determination’. We definitely just did things our way and made it happen the way we wanted to we definitely went for an organic raw sound but not to the extreme we went to on the last record. We just found a good medium between the rawness of ‘In The Wake Of Determination’ and the production of ‘Page Avenue’ so we’re in a really good place with that.” The full story at TimeOff.com.au has since been removed.

Australia’s Time Off magazine caught up with Story of the Year guitarist Philip Sneed as the band enjoyed some precious home time before they hit the road again touring the Pacific. “It’s gruelling,” Sneed admits. “We all have families back home and it’s not easy being away for huge amounts of time; you spend a lot of money on the phone late at night in hotels. It definitely has its downs, but it’s a dream come true – we worked very, very hard to get to do this, and continue to work hard, but it’s never easy being away from home, away from your family.” The article at timeoff.com.au has since been removed.
