Atlanta, GA based rock band THE RELICS has released the official music video for “Standing Tall.” Directed by Fernando Flores, “Standing Tall” is the inspiring new single from the band and was produced by John Briglevich (Fozzy, Drivin’ n’ Cryin’).
“Standing Tall is a rock anthem! It’s the kind of song an entire stadium sings along to at the top of their lungs. The lyrics of this song are about overcoming adversity & standing tall no matter what life throws at you. I think, now more than ever, the world needs to hear a positive message. The events of these past two years have really left a dark shadow on the world. Many people’s livelihood was drastically affected during the pandemic leaving many feeling disillusioned and disenfranchised. Depression and feelings of isolation are at an all time high. Hundreds of thousands are grieving the loss of loved ones. And the sociopolitical divide has never been greater. So, my hope is that this song will help inspire and encourage anyone that listens to it. Everyone is fighting their own personal battles, and no one should ever feel alone in their fight!.” – Joseph Pieper (Lead Singer)
