Today, My Silent Bravery premieres “On My Side,” the second single and video from its forthcoming album, Diamond from Coal. Front man Matthew Wade also announced an August tour with Tyler Ward leading up to the album release on August 11.
The video for the new song, which premieres this week at TheCelebrityCafe.com, was directed by Vassili Shields. It was filmed at Mechanics Hall in Worcester, Massachusetts, the same venue at which My Silent Bravery recently performed one of their biggest shows to date; sharing the stage with Daughtry and Delta Rae. "On My Side" follows the release of the last MSB video, "Amazing," which features Matthew and MTV’s The Challenge star, Cara Maria, which has over 80,000 views on YouTube and was picked up for rotation by MTV.com.
"This video is a more intimate, behind-the-scenes look at what the last couple of years have been like for MSB," stated Wade on the topic of the new video. "There are a lot of fans, friends, and family who have been on my side over the years. This video is a tribute to all of them for their continued love and support.”
While Wade is well known to have meaningful songs that connect to his audience on a personal level (something that "On My Side" will no doubt do as well), the song has already begun to connect on a professional level as well. The song recently earned runner-up status in the songwriting competition, Song of the Year.
Along with the release of the new video, My Silent Bravery also announced a run of tour dates in early August leading up to the album release. The group will be hitting the road to promote the new album, single and video touring with Tyler Ward (tour dates below):
