VERIDIA, who are currently touring with Evanescence, debuted the music video for their current single “Still Breathing” on Halloween on Monday. The video was filmed in a haunted house in Nashville and was directed by “Matt DeLisi” who also directed their “Pretty Lies” music video featuring Matty Mullins. The video can be seen above.
“Still Breathing” will appear on their new album which is slated to be released early next year. Deena Jakoub recently shared the following about the song…
“I don’t write because I have all the answers or because I want everyone to think I’m in this really good place. In fact, I am struggling, I am still healing, I am human. ‘Still Breathing’ was written to say, I feel you, we’re all struggling through something, and though there are some things we may solely have to endure on our own, we don’t have to process it alone.
This song was birthed out of fear and grew into an anthem of strength and conquering for me. I have a chronic illness that takes fear to the next level, and when I am over-stressed, anxiety and panic chase me down no matter how fast I run. What I’ve recently learned and keeps me going, is to actually slow down and find something to be grateful for in that day, in that moment. When I wrote this song, my gratitude was literally focused on being alive, having been given a chance to breathe another breath into the day. Sometimes all you need is a shift in perspective.
Vulnerability can be painful, but I think it’s worth it if someone else can be empowered by what you’ve endured. I share because I hope that someone finds strength through what I’ve learned in my weakness.”
