The Phoenix Within Release “NEXT”, The Intense Metal Track Addresses the Harsh Reality of Gun Violence in America

The Phoenix Within (TPW), the dynamic rock group hailing from NYC, has released their latest single and accompanying lyric video, “Next.” This intense metal track addresses the harsh reality of gun violence in America, reflecting the band’s profound response to the staggering number of mass shootings in 2023.

Watch the lyric video:

Song Statement: The creation of “Next” began after the band learned that over 600 mass shootings occurred across the United States in 2023.

The realization that gun violence has swiftly become a standard fixture in American lives fueled the music and lyrics behind this powerful single. “Next” confronts listeners with the unsettling possibility that they too could become the next victim of a mass shooting.

About the Track: “Next” is a metal track brimming with wild, brutal, and energetic musical dissonance, angst, and chaos. The song builds a great amount of dissonance and angst through its intro, pre-choruses, and post-choruses.

The verses begin with a character numb to the news of “the loss of life” and progress to a chorus that starkly declares the lack of real options or tangible solutions in the current climate, encapsulated in the haunting refrain, “no one can save us!”

About The Phoenix Within: Formed in 2012, The Phoenix Within is fronted by Omar Feliciano, with Nick Narlis on bass, John Narlis on guitar, and Steve Khan on drums.

The band has independently released one EP, three full-length albums, and self-published three guitar-chord songbooks and a coloring book, all featuring their original music. Their heavy progressive rock single “Pessimist” reached #9 on the iTunes Rock Charts in January 2021.

The Phoenix Within has performed at prestigious events such as the Blue Ridge Rock Festival in VA (2021), INKcarceration Campgrounds and Summit Music Fest in OH (2023), and the Electric City Music Conference and Launch Music Conference in PA (2023). The band is endorsed by PickBoy, GHS Strings, Xcel Drumsticks, TRX Cymbals, and PigHog Cables.
