“The Rain” is part 1 of a 3 part video series based around mental health, substance abuse, and addiction. The goal is to show the depths of how bad it can really get for people.
There are so many ways one person’s struggle can ripple through their loved one’s lives.
The song itself is about seeing someone for whom you care deeply falling into a cycle of destruction. One can offer guidance, but must learn that we all must save ourselves; “you gotta help me help you”. It is also acknowledging one’s own demons, “I’ll have you know, I’m a mess.” And how trying to save someone else from “drowning in the rain” can pull you underwater just as quickly.
Formed in 2017, made up of conditioned musicians, Words Like Wildfire are a high energy, dynamic band with roots in post hardcore and pop punk. Hailing from the Greater Toronto Area, Words Like Wildfire have already made their mark amongst the local scene with their debut EP "Quarter Life Crisis". As well as opening for such acts as Secrets, Picturesque, Silent Planet, and playing the last Vans Warped Tour in Toronto. Sing-along melodies and crushing rhythms make up Words Like Wildfire's spectrum-spanning sound. With a tight but equally unpredictable live show, fans of heavy and catchy genres alike will find something to love. Their newest single "The Rain" is available now on all major streaming platforms
