Former Rest. member Hagin Henderson has released a lyric video for his new side project The Variant. The Variant is a collaboration between Henderson and Gavin Livermore. We were first introduced to Hagin by Spoken frontman Matt Baird during our interview with him prior to the release of their Illusion album. We later went on to review Rest.’s Slaves EP, noting that “Rest. bring a carefully plotted out message via skillfully worked through alternative rock.”
The Variant follow this alt. rock pattern of carefully laid out music. This track features some varied vocal tones from Hagin’s work in Rest., so fans of the former band will be able to experience a fresh sound and a good example of what is to come in The Variant.

The last song to be revealed is possibly the most straightforward, a song called “Battle Flag.” It revisits a theme I’ve touched many times throughout my musical career in songs like “Shipwrecked Safe & Sound” and “Firstborn” – the idea that suffering is inevitable, but that it’s the way we respond to that suffering that truly defines us.
Learning to deal with disappointment is a life-long process, and I certainly haven’t mastered the steps. But when I’m faced with hardships or difficulties, I want to be defiant, refusing to let discouragement triumph over determination. I want to be the one who isn’t afraid to embrace a winding, unorthodox path if it’s truly the one I’m meant to walk. So for this video, I thought I’d take on the role of a buccaneer flying a rebel flag… but you’ll have to watch it to see what I mean! Thanks again everyone, and please enjoy the final installment of this video series – “Battle Flag”

Hello and welcome to Day 3! I’ve decided to skip around again and release the final track from “The Vine & The Branches” today, a song called “The Least Of These”. You’ll quickly realize that it’s a bit of a departure from the loud rock songs I’ve released so far, more of a whisper on an album of roaring. Those of you who read the post I created back in April might remember that all of these American Arson songs were written and recorded as if they were being performed by a single guitarist and drummer (though I did have some gang vocal help from Noah DeLeon of Gone By Sunset on this song). This is primarily accomplished via looping, whereby parts are played live and then looped over one another using a foot pedal. This technique is on full display in “The Least Of These,” with both picked and ebowed loops loops stacking on top of one another as the song swells in the bridge.
Lyrically, “The Least Of These” is loosely based on the true story of a homeless man who laid dead on the streets of an American city for more than a day. Passers-by noticed him, and some even stopped to pose for selfies next to the man’s body, but an ambulance was never called. The story really hit home with me, reminding me of the way we often pass by the homeless and destitute as if they were simply an unfortunate piece of the local scenery. Whether or not their situation was brought on by addiction or bad decisions, or was perhaps the result of an unfortunate or uncontrollable turn of circumstances such as mental illness or the loss of employment, one thing is certain – life is precious.

“I’ve decided to skip ahead a bit on the EP and reveal a track with a positive message that I’m very passionate about. There are so many ways that we define ourselves these days – by our profession, our familial status, our taste in music and style, and of course, by our country of residence. While there is certainly nothing wrong with taking pride in our country, nationalism can become dangerous when it causes us to view those who live elsewhere as second-class citizens whose lives aren’t quite as important. This can make it easy to turn a blind eye to poverty and injustice around the world while we worship our own laws and system of government. But perhaps we’d be better off holding one law above all the rest: Love One Another. American Arson is proud to present, “They Will Know Us By Our Love””
