Roadbound release debut single
The Belgian rock band Roadbound is releasing its debut single 'Stay'. Roadbound was formed by members of Evil Invaders (Nico Wilder) and Komah (Nicholas Brynin), taking an entirely new direction in writing and performing at the crossroad where Pop, Rock and Metal meet.
'Stay' is about a turbulent breakup, for which the band has specifically chosen to release the video clip in December, when the grey skies of the northern hemisphere perfectly match the tune's melancholy. It tells how love, a vivid, strong but fragile feeling can lead to situations beyond our control and how they can lead to dramatic consequences. The timeless Shakespearian tragedy that affects many of us at some times in our lives.

The concept deals with the compulsory use of the smartphone and social networks, the overwhelming barrage of text messages we read and write everyday, the stress reacted to all this and, on the other side, the stress that generates when “the link” is missing. We tried to describe how the virtual ego fragments in his social network projection and the consequent need for appreciation… the need for an aseptic thumb up. The “like” is our new drug.
