Kill the monster
"Use my Music as a weapon" - David Draiman
After having started playing live in July of 2020, LABOR XII is currently finishing up the writing process for their first album MONSTERS.
"From the beginning, the inspiration for the album has been about not just facing, but fighting the things that bring us constant pain," says Ross.
LABOR XII reached moderate success with this idea from their first official release, which was a live acoustic version of their song M;RROR M;RROR (a song meant to be a battle cry for those who deal with suicidal thoughts and those who have lost loved ones to suicide).
M;RROR M;RROR reached in international audience, receiving over 20k views over the course of a month and a writeup on the popular Christian website JesusWired.
Ross goes on to say, "we have been constantly amazed at the people who find us after a show or after watching the video and tell us their stories of loss and survival."
(Almost) Every song on the upcoming album faces off with a monster that each band member has battled personally.
