News: Red Temple Pray Release Video for New Single ‘Down The Drain’

Columbus, Ohio alternative rock group Red Temple Pray released a music video for their latest single, “Down the Drain.” The video was filmed by Nathan Hirschler and edited by Nicky Richter of Red Temple Pray. The band present a riff-heavy sound with melancholic overtones, and on the new single, they deliver more of an upbeat, grungy twist with lyrics that provide a gloomy contrast.

Of the new single, vocalist Josh Richter states: “When ‘Down The Drain’ was initially written it had a whole different lyrical vibe and title. It was more upbeat to match the upbeat nature of the music, but it just didn’t feel like me. It didn’t feel like it came from me. So, I remember sifting through some of the other lyrics I have written in my notes that haven’t been used and what I found fit perfectly. It wasn’t intentional to go as dark and gloomy as it ended up turning out to be, but sometimes things just work out that way. Personally, this is my favorite track on the record, and the polarizing vibe it gives off between the music and lyrical content is the perfect example of how I am and how my brain works.”

Red Temple Pray released their debut EP, Violently Lush, and immediately started writing for a full-length. They released “Chlorine,” their other new single, and this as their latest offerings of new music since the EP. Both singles were engineered and mixed by Andy Nelson of Bricktop Recording and mastered by Brad Boatright of Audiosiege.

Red Temple Pray will be hitting the road for the month of September with support from Getting Over.
