3 Minutes To Live drop video for “Knock Me Down”

Nashville-based metal band 3 Minutes To Live just dropped a new video for ‘Knock Me Down’ off their new album Strike The Shepherd released earlier this year. It’s a track that delivers on huge choruses, punchy riffs and crushing grooves, and it would be a surprise if this band didn’t find a wider audience soon.

“‘Knock Me Down’ is a fight song, as in the fight for your life! About a year and a half ago I was at the tail end of 5 years of deep depression having seen everything I had worked hard for and planned for fall apart. I was miserable and honestly was considering quitting on life completely. So one night I was surfing YouTube and came across a motivational video by Dwayne Johnson and it was a wakeup call.

I began to turn things around because I had found the will inside to fight once again. So as familiar with loss, tragedy, suffering and despair as I was, I wrote ‘Knock Me Down’ as a wakeup call to others to never quit no matter the odds against you or how many times life knocks you down. You get back up again!”Brian Terry, Vocals
