(Lodi, CA)- The post hardcore band A Skylit Drive premiered their new music video “Crazy” on AltPress today. The song is off the band’s recent album Rise, which peaked at No. 41 on the Billboard Top 200.
“This song holds a lot of anger and resentment for me,” says vocalist Michael “Jag” Jagmin when asked about the meaning of the song. “I’m particularly quick to snap when it comes to family falling short of simply treating their own with decency and respect. It disgusts me.”
The video was shot in LA by Ernie Gilbert and featured actual A Skylit Drive fans as extras. “Filming this video with our fans was a great experience,” adds Jag. “I love involving them any way we can.”
The new album Rise is the fourth full-length from A Skylit Drive. It is available via iTunes and the Tragic Hero MerchNow Store.
A Skylit Drive will be appearing on The Unconditional Tour which starts tomorrow with Memphis May Fire, as well as playing the entire 2014 Van’s Warped Tour.

ABOUT A SKYLIT DRIVE:
Great vision, that’s what it takes to refuse to rest on previous success and instead focus on what you need to become in the future, which is exactly what Lodi, California’s A Skylit Drive continues to achieve with every album. Vocalist Michael “Jag” Jagmin, guitarist Nick Miller, bassist/screamer Brian White, drummer Cory La Quay and keyboardist Kyle Simmons, officially exploded onto the scene in 2007 with their EP She Watched the Sky. They followed that release up with three full-length albums titled Wires and the Concept of Breathing, Adelphia and Identity on Fire, which all charted on the Billboard Top 200, and their live DVD Let Go of the Wires.
A Skylit Drive has toured extensively with similar artists like Blessthefall, Sleeping with Sirens, Pierce the Veil, and Of Mice & Men; as well as contributing songs to the well known compilations Punk Goes Classic Rock and Punk Goes Pop Vol 4. A Skylit Drive’s musical resume would be enough of a career for most bands, but they have no intentions of slowing down. In fact, the band believes they are just hitting their stride. They released their new album Rise to critical acclaim and assured their fans that this was just a taste of things to come. It joins the essential characteristics of A Skylit Drive’s signature sound heard on Wires and the Concept of Breathing while showcasing a wide spectrum of tones, textures and song structure.
