Frontman Aiden Shaw says, “This track is incredibly personal to me as I wrote it when I was in a very rough place. I was just dealing with getting out of a long term relationship, dealing with the uncertainty of a pandemic, and just generally feeling really anxious about the future. I felt like I had tried my best and everything was still falling apart around me, so I decided to try to channel those feelings and that’s where ‘Nowadays’ comes from. It’s really a look at my mental state and how I truly felt like something was wrong inside my head. We all deal with these struggles, but it was healthy for me to be able to put these feelings into words. Hopefully they help someone else.”

About Arm The Witness:

Embracing their post-metalcore roots and evolving into a powerhouse six-piece, Arm The Witness are one of the most exciting new rock bands of 2020. Musically an infusion of electronic-pop and hard rock that invokes names like Linkin Park, Bring Me The Horizon, and Papa Roach. Lyrically they put off an anti-establishment angst and a voice for the little guy. Coincidentally, vocalist Aiden Shaw was wrongfully convicted and incarcerated for a crime he didn’t commit. On closer listen, they courageously tackle personal issues, emotion, and the pain of a broken home. The band is currently at over 500,000 streams and 500,000 video views. Both Aiden and guitarist Cody are emerging videographers and run their own agencies as well as staying in close touch with their fans.

Arm The Witness is: Aiden Shaw, Cody Cupp, Dylan McMakin, Derek Heath, Derick Boardwine, & Cody McCluskey
