Writers Ryan Halsaver and Dusty Skyler used the inspiration of “We Rise from Darkness”, as the baseline musical and lyrical theme for all songs on the "Gasping for Air" album. The album is a series of songs that seduce the listener into entering a new uncertain world, to escape the horrors of reality. Everyone finds themselves, at some point, in a place of darkness that they struggle to escape from.
Little did the band know, when they wrote the album, that the theme would hit close to home. On the way to shoot the video in August of 2012, Dusty and the band's manager were in a terrible accident witnessed by the rest of band. At the accident site, two initial rescuers (our angels) promptly attended to our band members. One was an off duty EMT and the other a nurse. The nurse had just lost her own child in similar accident the year before and her ability to help Dusty and stabilize him for air transport allowed her to Rise from Darkness. His angel found her own piece, in her life saving work.
As the band regrouped, all members of the band found their way to rise above this situation and we returned to Nashville to shoot the video in January of 2013. The release of Enter In and its video are not only the Band's debut, but the bands Rise from Darkness.
Enter In is the debut single from that album that was picked by the band to best represent the total concept of the album and introduce the band outside of the Washington DC and Northern Virginia areas. The album is targeted for release, later in this summer. The video for Enter In, is being released on April 24, 2013 and was directed by Sean Babas.
