Emo/post-hardcore quintet When I Say Jump has shared a new music video for their latest single “King of Thessaly.” The band, inspired by the 2000’s alternative scene, takes scathing, witty punches at toxic relationships and vices, often through a queer lens.
“King of Thessaly” is When I Say Jump’s follow up to its critically acclaimed debut album, Separation Anxiety, and features production and engineering from Jamie King (Between the Buried and Me, Alesana, Motionless in White). The track also marks the addition of Lucas Daprile on guitar and the budding production of guitarist and vocalist Brennen Monk.
“We really wanted to keep the raw emotionality of ‘Separation Anxiety,’ but also push ourselves to create something more theatrical and polished,” said frontman John Davis. “‘King of Thessaly’ is indicative of where we’re going, and what we’re about; I couldn’t be more proud of it.”
