Melbourne metalcore powerhouse Druid are dropping their new music video for Hang In There (It Gets Worse) tomorrow, but before the clip’s official release, Kill Your Stereo is premiering the hip-hop meets brutal riffs music video.

Bathed in blues and reds, the music video for Hang In There (It Gets Worse) is dark and intense and features lyrics appearing on the screen as the band rips through the two-minute and 25-second long track.

Written by Druid, Evan Lee and Ash Daws and produced, engineered, mixed and mastered by Lee and Daws at The Loud Noise Estate, Hang In There (It Gets Worse) is both chilling and haunting.

The new track from Druid was originally released on 12 May and delves into the depths of mental health issues and the inner struggles that accompany them, showcasing the group’s unyielding style and raw intensity.

With their powerful and honest lyrics, volatile vocals, and explosive energy, Hang In There (It Gets Worse) works as a reflection of co-lead vocalist Jordan Williams' personal experiences with depression and mental health challenges.

His hostile vocal delivery, paired with brutally honest lyrics, genuinely conveys the weight and pressure that come with such struggles. The song contains a fiery feel that resonates with listeners on a visceral level.

The intense and cathartic composition of Druid’s latest number is further emphasized by lacerating riffs and unrelenting breakdowns, creating an unyielding sonic experience.

The chorus, referencing Bring Me The Horizon's 2008 album Suicide Season, not only pays homage to the influential Brits but also alludes to Williams' enduring battle with mental health, which has been a part of his life from a young age.

Having solidified their position in the Australian heavy scene since the release of their debut EP in 2019 and subsequent string of powerful singles, Druid have shared stages with renowned acts including Void Of Vision, Alpha Wolf, The Beautiful Monument, Suspryia, Earthcaller, Lune, Diamond Construct, and more.
