New Jersey natives Young Rising Sons released a motivational track titled “Undefeatable” last October, part of the three-song EP Undefeatable +2. And today (May 10), Billboard brings you the premiere of the equally as inspirational video for the song.
Although the indie-rock band waited nearly seven months to put out a video for “Undefeatable,” it’s every bit as moving as one would imagine after listening to the tune. The black-and-white visual features Paralympic Track & Field athlete Lacey Henderson, chronicling her journey from when her right leg was amputated as a young girl, to her training as a professional athlete now — an exact depiction of the determination Young Rising Sons are singing about in “Undefeatable.”
“Undefeatable’ is about the resilience of the human spirit and the innate power within each of us to stay strong in the face of adversity when it feels like the odds are against you,” lead singer Andy Tongren tells Billboard. “We’re defined not by the obstacles we face, but how we overcome them, and we feel that this video is an important vessel for that message.”
Young Rising Sons were featured in promos for ESPN’s 2016-’17 college football coverage thanks to their anthemic track, and were recently selected as one of 100 bands for Taco Bell’s Spring 2017 Feed The Beat program. The trio (Tongren, bassist Julian Dimagiba and drummer Steve Patrick) is currently working on their debut full-length album in their home studio in New Jersey. No release date has been determined yet, but the LP will be released on Dirty Canvas/Interscope Records.
