On this episode of the Adventures of Pipeman, Pipeman is joined by Scotty from Burden of Sky, who have just released some killer new music with some more coming soon.

Burden of Sky have just released their new single The Flood. They came up with the song after their found guitarist passed away due to some complications with Covid, and the guys felt like they lost a brother. The only way they could express themselves was to write and so The Flood came to be.

Scotty talks about performing on stage since he passed away, and says it feels like he is still there with them. He says as awful as his passing was, it has given them a purpose and they know they need to carry on his legacy.

Speaking about their upcoming tour with Seven Dust, Scotty says they’re super excited to be touring with one of the best bands out there. He also says that Morgan from the band was amazing to work with as a producer and really showed them the ropes.

You can check the guys out on social media under Burden of the Sky, on Instagram, Twitter and YouTube being their main platforms. You can check out burdenofthesky.com for all of the upcoming tour dates so if they’re coming to your area, be sure to snag a ticket.

Burden of the Sky released the official music video for their single "The Flood." The band will be touring on Sevendust’s “Animosity Tour” in September of 2022.

"When we began writing 'The Flood' we were in a dark headspace. We were angry and mournful after the passing of our guitarist and founding member Bradford Shaw. Our only goal was to write a song that we could pour our soul and emotions into in honor of our fallen brother. Once we had a demo put together, we reached out to Blake (SAUL) and Morgan (Sevendust) and told them our story. We asked them to contribute their own experiences and emotions to the song and the result was better than we could have ever asked for," says Scottie James.

He adds, “'The Flood' is symbolic of all of the struggles in life, our demons that try to bring us down and swallow us whole; the ever-looming darkness and misery that is held back by our own will that inevitably will come crashing through the second we let our guard down. This song is our way of saying we will stand our ground — strong, fierce, and determined — in solidarity against anything life throws our way; even though we know we cannot win, we will fight for what we believe in until our last breath."

Burden of the Sky is an alternative metal band hailing from Bloomington, IL. Formed in 2012 by Josh Appel and the late Brad Shaw, the band has built itself as one of the most well known bands in the Midwest. Led by lead singer Scottie James and guitarist Josh Appel, the band has performed across the Midwest and beyond with many of today’s hottest active rock bands. With a lineup rounded out by drummer Rick Streeter, bassist Dustin Tritsch, guitarist and backing vocalist TJ Duckwiler, and keyboardist Mike Mahoney, “BOTS” regularly leaves fans begging for more once they leave the stage.

Having hit the stage with acts such as Sevendust, Ice Nine Kills, A Day To Remember, I Prevail, Nothing More, Asking Alexandria and more, the band continues to show they belong on the big stage. Their debut album, Cinis Ad Cinis, featured the single “Same Old Page”, which has amassed millions of streams since its 2017 release. Sophomore album Sine Timore was led by “Sirens”, which was featured on many top Spotify playlists, gaining over a million streams. Most recently, the band released a cover of Ellie Goulding’s “Lights”, as well as original single “Whiteout”, which was featured on Apple Music’s “Breaking Hard Rock” playlist.
