2 Shadows & The Veer Union Team Up For “Marionette”

 



Hotly Tipped Vancouver based metal juggernauts 2 Shadows have teamed up with The Veer Union for the release of their haunting, heavy, and melodic new single "Marionette'' on Rock Shop Records. The song features a relentless barrage of chugging guitars with a propulsive drum line, and is a lyrical rant against conformity and letting other people dictate how someone should live their life – by blindly following the rules. It’s a call-to-arms to not let outside influences pull the strings of your destiny.



Glen Bridden of 2 Shadows says “Marionette’ was a really enjoyable song to write - on the surface it has a great beat and puppet metaphors. Conceptually it's a rant about how people so often feel this obligation to do all these things that seem “right” to be successful, all the while without really knowing why you are doing them. It's what it feels like to be stuck in the middle of the blind leading the blind and being manipulated. The song is a call for people to stand out and stand up for who they are without letting their integrity be stolen out from under them”.



Crispin Earl of The Veer Union adds "It was great collaborating with 2 Shadows on “Marionette” - not only did I have the privilege of producing and co-writing this song with the band, but I have had a front row seat in seeing this band grow from the ground up! I personally think “Marionette” is a song that has the potential to really put 2 Shadows on the map, and I’m excited to see what’s in store for this band in the future".




In talking about the video, Ryan Ramsdell of The Veer Union explains “In the ‘Marionette’ video, we aimed to maintain a connection with the themes of weightlessness and suspension while also visualizing some of the powerful influences steering our world's current course. It was exciting to work with 2 Shadows as they always bring it when performing live. Our director Julien Bouffard made the video shoot here in Vancouver memorable”.



2 Shadows Glen Bridden adds “In the music video for “Marionette” we wanted to match the meanings drawn from the lyrics and vibe of the song translated into the visuals. The void-like space we occupy lends itself really nicely to the darkness in the track. It was also a huge pleasure to work with our good friends in The Veer Union on this video, our combined energy added so much impact and life to the video set!"





2 Shadows is on the 2nd leg of their North American “The Cold Inside Tour” that runs through November. The band plans to release more new music in 2024 and tour throughout the year.

The group follows the lead of bands such as Tool and Primus by creating an entire universe of sound and light for fans to explore. The band teamed with renowned producer Kane Churko (Five Finger Death Punch, In This Moment, Ozzy Osbourne, Papa Roach) on the EP and new focus track ‘ Joke ”.

No one is entirely what they may think or claim to be, even the most insightful among us. Moreover, today's technological trends and social platforms seem to have amplified our tendency toward self-delusion." He continues: "Maintaining a healthy sense of humility and open-mindedness can be challenging under more traditio
