Produced by principal songwriter & lead singer Gabe Gabriels, Knife To The Memory sees True Believer really finding their niche, writing top class melodic, mid- tempo bang your head anthems. Today the band also drops a video for the new single.
Singer/guitarist Gabe Gabriels on Knife To The Memory; “Knife to the memory is a recollection from when I was a child. My mother was terminally ill and seeking salvation through religion. There were people in and out of the house constantly, priests, doctors, family. Drawing on those memories and travelling back through time to capture and convey the mood within them. Knife is song about letting go of the past, cutting ties with regrets and forging your own history.“
True Believer recently announced the addition of two new members joining the founding trio of Gabe Gabriels (Vocals/Guitar), brother Luke Toomey (Guitar/Vocals) and Duane Jackson (Bass). Drummer Aaron Fiocca (Dream on Dreamer) and keys/vocalist Sarah Lim (Earth, The Night Terrors) were both heavily involved in True Believer’s musical past and are now firmly entrenched in their future–the quintessential True Believer.
