Stand Still show love to the Long Island music scene with video for ‘In My Blood’

Stand Still have crafted ten songs of emotionally driven melodic hardcore on their upcoming debut full-length, ‘Steps Ascending,’ set for release June 14th through DAZE. Having already teased with singles ‘In the Dying Light of a Setting Sun,’ ‘Mysticism,’ and ‘Steps Ascending,’ the band shares ‘In My Blood’.

The track is two and a half minutes of pure energy, touting the importance of family and community in music. The accompanying video, directed by Tom Flynn, finds the band performing in a home that has hosted monumental moments in the Long Island music scene, including being where Taking Back Sunday’s video for ‘S’old’ was shot. Stand Still’s clip features an impassioned performance filled with stage dives and sing-alongs from friends including LIHC staples such as Pain of Truth, Koyo, Backtrack, King Nine, Victory Garden and more.

Diving further into the song’s personal lyrics, vocalist Gerry Windus states: “My family is the reason I’m so invested in music. My dad played in bands his whole life and taught me how to play guitar and sing at an early age. My sister was going to LIHC shows while I was still picking my nose and riding my bike. Without them, I wouldn’t be doing what I’m doing today without a doubt.”
