The Veer Union Releases New Video For “Living Not Alive”

The Veer Union has released a new video for the song “Living Not Alive”. “Living Not Alive” is a brand new song taken from the recently released Decade II. Created by Dark Chamber Pictures and directed by James Ryan and Peter Warkentin, the video showcases the band’s earnest vitality while using eerie digital visualizations to manifest the song’s theme of using social media as a crutch while dealing with mental illness.

As lead singer Crispin Earl describes it:

What inspired me to write the song was the connection between the over-use of social media and clinical depression. We used to live in a time where people really lived in the moment — now it seems more important to capture that moment for a post to get likes and shares, in exchange for a dose of dopamine.

We are all guilty of this, myself included. Some people deal with this better than others, but the message in Living Not Alive is simple: We shouldn’t forget to take time to really live in the moment, before we become lost in a world where we are living, but not alive.”

Check out the band as they are a part of the  The Resurrection Tour” with Puddle of Mudd, Saliva, Tantric, and Shallowside, and then on their own headlining tour on the dates below:
