Vocalist Garrett Russell said of the new single:
“‘Visible Unseen’ is about the epidemic of homeless LGBTQ youth — a statistically observable phenomenon where disproportionate numbers of LGBT youth are homeless in America. The song was inspired by heartbreaking conversations I’ve had at shows, hearing the pain of kids who have been abandoned by families and shunned by communities, simply because they don’t fit a traditional paradigm of sexuality.
I call these youths the ‘Visible Unseen’ because this is a phenomenon that is happening around us, but often goes overlooked. So this is an anthem for them, and a challenge for us, to recognize an often-isolated, needing group of young people in our society.”
