Greek Fire has released their powerful new music video for “True Colors”, an emotional, self-empowering anthem that premiered this week via Alternative Press online. The timeless pop track is included on their LP Broken, which was released 7/12 on WITHYN Records and also features the popular singles “Coming Out Of The Rain” and “I Do”.
“True Colors is an important message for anyone who feels they or someone close to them is ashamed and afraid of vulnerability” says singer/guitarist Moon. “The need for perfection and how social media projects life is never reality, and leads to people feeling anxious, depressed and often leaving us feeling unfit to simply be happy.” The song was massively popular in the ‘80s when originally released by Cyndi Lauper and again in the late ‘90s when Phil Collins released his cover. Greek Fire found “True Colors” to be a song that resonates heavily with their purpose as a band, and were proud to put their own stamp on the track.
“This is such a cool and special song to our band,” says Moon. “Our great friend and producer Matt Amelung just passed away weeks ago and this was a song he and I did together. We did the track in a day and Matt completely slayed the mix. We had such fun with it that when we turned to each other, we knew it would go on an album. We miss you so much, Matt.”
Formed in 2008, Greek Fire has built up their incredible fan base thanks to their diehard work ethic, powerful live shows, and candid lyrics speaking of the best and most challenging parts of being our authentic selves. The band knows they have a specific calling, and make it a point to create meaningful songs that are passionate, relatable and uplifting. The band is comprised of Moon who was a longtime member of the gold selling outfit Story of the Year and also plays guitar with ska legends Goldfinger. Greek Fire is rounded out by bassist Mark Joseph Roth, guitarist Chris Hobbs and drummer Johnny Venus.
Greek Fire self-released Deus Ex Machina in 2011, and was followed-up by their successful 2014 EP Lost, which featured the single “Top of the World” that was heard in Disney’s BIG HERO 6 and other successful film and television programs. They have toured relentlessly and have hit the road on the Vans Warped Tour, Rockstar’s UPROAR Festival along with appearances at Rock on the Range, POINTFEST and Summerfest.
