Singled Out: Heaven Below's When Daylight Die

08/24/2010
.
Welcome to Singled Out! where we ask artists to tell us the inside story of their latest single. Today Patrick Kennison from Heaven Below tells us about "When Daylight Die" from their album "Countdown to Devil". We now turn it over to Patrick for the story:

The music to When Daylight Dies has an interesting story behind it. A couple years back, for a short time I played in a band with a female singer.
We had decided to do a cover of the Stevie Nicks hit from the '80's Edge of Seventeen. I was not a huge fan of the song but I agreed to cover the song provided I could "reinterpret", or more accurately "re-write" all the music to the song. While the version we played did get great response when we performed the song live, the band ended as quickly as it began. Less than a year later I formed Heaven Below with myself as the frontman.

While combing through my "riff archive" the band & I came across the music I had used for the Stevie Nicks cover. Immediately the band insisted I put vocals over the newly found arrangement. Lyrically the song is about an immortal being having a relationship with a mortal being. When it is understood that the bond between the two must come to an end an emotional account of the story is told through the lyrics. I can honestly say every line and melody in the song came very easily for me. Once I got into the mindset of the characters the song simply wrote itself. For lack of a better comparison, the movie City of Angles with Nicholas Cage would be a contender for inspiration. Once my buddy Ben Moody heard what we were doing, he insisted he produce the track. His approach and orchestration in the studio brought the song to a new level. We're proud that such a huge talent lent themselves to our project.

A lot of fans think the song comes from the Twilight series which I find silly, but hey if fans want to put popular movie trailers to our music, so be it. As of late fans and friends of the band have told us they identify with the song and the subject matter. It is these personal testimonies that make writing and performing music one of the best jobs in the world.

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself and learn more about the album
