Ahead of Performances at Blue Ridge Rock Fest & Inkcarceration, THE PHOENIX WITHIN Release New Single "Lacking"

 


Being a musician isn’t always easy. Artists make sacrifices and encounter various obstacles throughout their careers. The Phoenix Within talks about that with their most recent single “Lacking.”

“Lacking by The Phoenix Within was written to be an anthem for underdogs everywhere and anywhere. In this particular case, the underdog is an artist/musician. The song touches on factual aspects which most struggling artists encounter such as the lack of monetary funds, lack of support from friends and record labels, and of course, having to face the fact that most people expect you to give up and fail,” frontman Omar Feliciano explains about the track. “The song becomes a hopeful anthem when the chorus hits and clearly states, ‘I'm willing to march right through this hell.’ In other words, you'll have to take the bad with the good while continuing to put in the hard work in your art and music. In short, believe in yourself, continue learning new things, and do not stop working, because, in the end, your work, music, and art will speak for itself.”

Check out the video for 'Lacking' below:


The song is told from the perspective of a struggling artist, talking about the difficulties that they’re facing as they work towards a career as a musician, but the lyrics gradually work towards bringing a more hopeful message, as the artist depicted in the song decides that they are willing to do whatever it takes to continue pursuing their dream. The anthemic chorus and raw instrumental and vocal performances perfectly portray the passion shown within the lyrics, and the song as a whole continues to display The Phoenix Within’s signature rock sound.

Thursday, September 2nd - Arlene's Grocery in New York City, NY w/All In Due Time & Fernandez

Friday, September 10th - Blue Ridge Rock Festival in Danville, VA

Of course when it comes to music, at least for us, we wanted to record an album with some of the best musicians in metal music and the ones that we listened to when we were kids. We are not saying that this is something special what we are doing, but this means a lot to us and basically we are doing this for ourselves and our closest friends first but also for all the metal fans around the world who we hope are going to like our new music.
