Watch the video for ‘Where I Belong’, featuring an appearance by Ronnie Radke:
The Life That You’ve Chosen takes the band’s diverse musical interests, from Justin Timberlake to Underoath, and combines them into an incredibly catchy amalgamation. Maybe most impressive is the fact that Survive This! can successfully merge chaotic chugging with soaring choruses with neither part sounding out of place. Then there are the electronic flourishes and accents that help take the album to the next level sonically and emotionally. Oh, and the band’s knack for crafting innovative breakdowns doesn’t hurt either. And if you couldn’t guess from the title, ‘The Life That You’ve Chosen’, tells the story of how the band have always remained hopeful even if they haven’t lead a fairy-tale existence.
Shawn Zyvoloski says: “This album is insanely personal. Everyone needs a release to get out the frustrations that you have inside and I’m so thankful we found this and other people can relate to it as well. It’s something really special.”
Survive This! have sacrificed everything to make ‘The Life That You’ve Chosen’ yet despite the amount of work that’s going into every single note, they feel like they’re just getting started when it comes to what they can accomplish.
