Alternative rock band Ink to Spill are keeping up their momentum from 2020, sharing their new single Chalk Lines. The track draws its original inspiration from the tremendous sense of loss felt immediately after the shooting of Philando Castile in 2016. The release is accompanied by a music video that begins with raw footage from the memorials of the victims that have fallen. The jarring look into the emotional experience greets listeners with a harsh reality that millions fought against in 2020.
“As a young person, I had a few scrapes and traffic stops with the authorities, but I can’t imagine what it’s like to be concerned that one of those events could turn into loss of life in an instant.” says Ink to Spill songwriter Bob Sauer.
