Stand Still's new single and video "In My Blood" show love to the Long Island music scene

Long Island melodic emotionally charged hardcore band have just released the latest single and video “In My Blood” taken from the forthcoming debut LP "Steps Ascending." The track is two and 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.” The latest single follows the three previously released singles “In the Dying Light of a Setting Sun,” “Mysticism,” and “Steps Ascending,” all taken from the forthcoming LP and streamable below.
