Redlight King Reveal New Video For “Heavy Heart” Ballad
Out Friday December 16
Rock band Redlight King share their new music video for their new single “Heavy Heart.” Taken off their fourth album In Our Blood due early 2023 via AFM Records, “Heavy Heart” is a stripped-down rock & roll ballad depicting the somber aftermath of a relationship and finding the will to move forward. It will be available to stream/download across all streaming platforms tomorrow, Friday, December 16.
“This song is very personal to me,” shares Redlight King founder and frontman Kaz. “It reflects on a loving relationship that ended in heartbreak. The person in my life wasn’t able to communicate their true feelings and I’m not sure I was in a place to receive the message. It feels lonely because it is. There’s pain in losing someone you love and no amount of intuition or clarity can make it better, but writing this song helped me find closure and say what I needed to say in their absence.
“Heavy Heart” is exquisitely melancholy, full of the all-too-familiar sadness that follows love gone cold. It’s an atmospheric ballad with a minimalist vibe that doesn’t let anything get in the way of its emotional qualities. Frontman Kaz delivers a quiet, confessional vocal performance over the spacious arrangement that will quickly pull you into his situation. The music video for the track uses the stark beauty of Yosemite in the winter to compound its impact. Put this on and let its mood take you places.

Discussing the “Heavy Heart” video, he says: “For me the video translates the solitude and cold nature of bearing a broken heart, and somehow in this sadness there is beauty. I feel the ability to love someone triumphs over losing them. The video was taken in and around Yosemite National Park, Northern California by Strati Hovartos.”
In Our Blood sees Redlight King notch soaring new highs with a clutch of revved-up, guitar-powered bangers that bring forth challenging, complex themes with a defiant undercurrent of hope. The album was written and produced by KAZ at his home studio The Wheelhouse in Los Angeles with longtime collaborator and guitarist Julian Tomarin and drummer Randy Cooke. Its debut single and title track “In Our Blood” premiered on Loudwire who described it as “a song that truly speaks to the human spirit.”
