Carry the Lost “Battle Tested” Music Video

Halifax’s hard-rock band Carry the Lost shows off the new music video for the first single, “Battle Tested”, from their upcoming album

With two EPs under their belt and many single releases over the course of a decade, Halifax hard rock band is preparing for the release of their highly anticipated debut album coming Spring 2020. The first single, “Battle Tested” is a hard-rock banger, featuring CTL’s riff-driven, heavy sound,  fused with catchy earworms.

The music video was shot in the abandoned textile factory in Windsor, NS, and produced by Shane Greaves.

“I live very near to the old Windsor Textile Factory, and upon hearing all these old stories of it in its glory days, and how the community has said that it’s been vandalized and sitting idle all these years, I thought it was a great time to bring some art into the building and give it life for a day, “ writes Colin Tye, singer, and guitarist of the band.

“We got permission to use it, found a great film crew, and went to work. We are really proud of the result” says Ave Trefry, lead guitarist of the band.

Carry the Lost was born in early 2010 when five like-minded musicians from across Canada found themselves in Halifax, Nova Scotia. Through some planning and a chance meeting, one jam is all it took to know.  Through CTL’s time as a band they have opened for Big Wreck, One Bad Son, performed at Canada’s Got Talent and had their song “Never Easy” be featured in the end credits of The Trailer Park Boys. They have toured widely throughout the east coast, playing at various festivals and venues.

Music Is Facing a Mental Health Crisis

Money is tight while they work long and weird hours, travel incessantly, are isolated from their friends and family at home, and have ample access to drinks and drugs. They write, record, release, and promote, and then repeat the cycle over and over again. And now, more than ever, the industry demands constant content, lest they are forgotten in the ocean of songs hitting Spotify every Friday. But then they get in the van and, especially in Canada, drive absurd distances between low-paying gigs for a tour they likely had to book themselves.
