Video of the Moment #2742: The Boxer Rebellion

By on Tuesday, 14th November 2017 at 6:00 pm

We are coming up to International Men’s Day on the 19th of November, and the Boxer Rebellion have released a poignant new single. In the accompanying video for ‘Love Yourself’, frontman Nathan Nicholson returns Maryville, Tennessee as he contemplates a life that could have been. They have released this promo to support men’s anti-suicide charity the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM), which yours truly once contributed articles to.

About the single, Nicholson said to NME, “In this age of connectivity, for all its celebration and wonderment, it seems impossible to not be just as affected by the suffering of others, whether those in trouble are close to you or not. Every day our papers are filled with heart-breaking stories of loss due to natural causes, forced displacement, ill physical and/or mental health, or, indeed, victimisation at the hands of others. ‘Love Yourself’ is a song about all of these things – drawing primarily from my own experiences. My intention when I wrote the song was to try and deliver hope in the face of hopelessness, albeit during a moment of deep self-reflection.” To read more of Nicholson’s thoughts on their band’s powerful new single, go here. ‘Love Yourself’ is a preview of ‘Ghost Alive’, The Boxer Rebellion’s new album that’s on the horizon. To read more on this band on TGTF, we’ve got some older pieces on them back here.
