[Song Commentary] “Retribution” – Convalesce

Convalesce Promo Winter 2013

(中文版本在下)

Florida based Post Hardcore band Convalesce has released the official lyric for their track “Retribution” produced by Joey Sturgis (The Devil Wears Prada, Asking Alexandria, We Came As Romans).

Singer David Borges says of the track:

This song it’s for the people that have friends and family with drug addictions. I’ve found out through the years that the best way to get someone to “wake up” and realize where they’re at is to tell them the truth, and most importantly to love them and show them compassion. It’s a struggle to love them when they hurt us and others, and you can tell in the song the struggle we can face; but, at the end of day, remember that they might not have tomorrow, you might indeed be the last voice they hear. Love, in this situation, can save their lives.

About Convalesce:

Convalesce [ kon-vuh-les ] 
To recover one’s health and strength after illness; to make progress toward recovery of health.

Reigning from the country of Puerto Rico, Convalesce decided to move to the United States in 2009 to fully pursue music and expand their audience. Aside from the intricate music and catchy melodies, their sole purpose was to reach out to those that were hurting through a simple message of hope and love. Over the past few years, Convalesce has not only exploded onto the Jacksonville, Florida music scene, but also stood true to their Christian roots in a society that is generally filled with hate and negativity. The band strives to become a light in what seems to be such a dark place.

佛羅里達州的 Post Hardcore 樂隊  Convalesce 剛發布了新曲歌詞視頻 “Retribution”,歌曲由曾為 The Devil Wears Prada, Asking Alexandria, We Came As Romans 等監製的 Joey Sturgis 主理。

主唱 David Borges 在佛羅里達州跟我們的公關分析此曲:

這首歌是送給認識有藥物成癮的人。這幾年裡我發現了最好的方法去喚醒藥物成癮的朋友就是告訴他們真相,最重要是用愛去感動他們。這是一個很大的爭扎,因為他們不斷傷害我們和身邊的人,你可以在歌曲中聽到我們面對的爭扎。但是,請記住,他們可能沒有明天,你可能是他們聴到最後的聲音。在這種情況下,愛,可以挽救他們的生命。
