Justin Chamberlain of The Very Reverend commented:
My grandmother always said, ‘there’s nothing in the night that wasn’t there in the daylight.’ On some particularly dark and lonesome nights, I remembered that advice. Watching horror films, drinking tequila and listening to Patsy Cline, Elton John, Bowie, Bauhaus and K. Flay records, I sat down at my piano and wrote this song. It’s a reminder to be painfully honest about why we find ourselves alone – which is often our own actions more than anyone else’s – and to face those demons. We made this ultra-creepy video with nods to Gary Numan, live animals, and some classic horror vibes. It was absolutely wild, and definitely my favorite experience in this band to date.
About the band:
Formed by multi-instrumentalist and songwriter Justin Chamberlain in 2017, The Very Reverend’s sound is a narcotic noir dressed in layers of weaving fuzz guitar, synth and bass, with nods to B-movie horror soundtracks and glampunk, doom-disco drum grooves. As a vocalist, Chamberlain writes pop hooks and honest lyrics, delivered in a smooth, falsetto-heavy snarl. The band has built a loyal following through constant touring behind their critically acclaimed debut EP, Gold To a Thief. The newest single, “Give Up The Ghost” signals a slight departure from their debut as the band heads into the studio to record their next effort.
