Vocalist Brian Burkheiser said of the clip:
“‘Lifelines’ is no doubt our proudest video to date. We set out to create something that embodied what ‘Lifelines’ as a song and as an album really meant to us. It centers around the harsh reality that life doesn’t care about what you have planned. The biggest moments, whether ones of amazing opportunity or painful loss, are coming no matter what. How you choose to respond makes you who you are. That’s what we wanted to express. This video became even more special to us when we had the chance to turn our creative process into a way to bring awareness to an amazing cause.
The video was filmed at a magical oasis of hope called the Downtown Boxing Gym in Detroit. With great inspiration and support from the owner Coach Khali Sweeney. Coach Khali and his team are straight up HEROES, changing the lives of young people in Detroit, a place where it is greatly needed. They bring kids in from the Public School system and provide a safe environment with a focus on education first, using the self discipline of reading books together with the camaraderie that a sport like boxing.
They build bodies and minds with an eye to the making of future leaders. There is no such thing as a ‘bad kid’ to this organization. To see the positive impact this is having first hand was truly inspiring and something we couldn’t be happier to support. They are truly making positive lifelines and we are honored to have worked with them in their home base.”
