"Not always do 2 people change in the same direction, no matter how close, similar or the same they were at one point in their lives".
Metalcore shooting stars BREATHE ATLANTIS are starting the new year off right with a bang and have prominent support in tow. The busy quartet around singer Nico Schiesewitz and guitarist Jan Euler releases their brand new hit single 'Changes', which surprisingly also features Nico Sallach, singer and frontman of ESKIMO CALLBOY. The already fourth single 'Changes' from the as yet unannounced album offers once again everything that makes the metalcore heart beat faster and also speaks for the successful change of the Essen-based band.

"'Changes' was a single candidate for us from the beginning, it shows that we have matured in songwriting and perfectly reflects our new sound. That we could convince Nico Sallach to take part in the song was of course the cherry on the cake. We've been friends for years and have been on tour together quite often in To The Rats And Wolves times. I love Nico's voice and it fits wonderfully to the mood and message of 'Changes'", explains guitarist Jan Euler.
After IMMINENCE frontman Eddie Berg already made his guest contribution to BREATHE ATLANTIS on the track 'Savior' the band now pulls another top-class feature artist out of the hat. Sallach's band ESKIMO CALLBOY recently made headlines with high chart placements and the application for the German representation at the upcoming Eurovision Song Contest.
How the collaboration went down, singer Nico Schieswitz describes:
"After Jan Euler told us that Nico Sallach is in it, we were all beside ourselves. Of course we know Nico for a long time, but for us it is still an honor to get support from the singer of such a famous band. We met in the studio and worked together on the chorus and the arrangement and what can I say, we were done with everything within 4 hours, because Nico is an insanely good musician and our vibe just fit."
That 'Changes' once again comes with a catchy chorus is therefore not surprising.
The video for the song also impresses with its skillfully staged story and makes clear what "change" is all about:
"In 'Changes' is shown how difficult it can be to maintain interpersonal relationships in the change of time and thus at the same time the persons themselves without some kind of problems. We all change, we have to, even if we want to evolve. And even without our intervention, sometimes it is the circumstances that transform our character without us noticing it," describes singer Nico Schiesewitz.
That change is sometimes difficult, but also necessary, should be well known to BREATHE ATLANTIS after the turbulent years. But with the current release it should be clear that the band does not have to hide from the international metalcore elite. A success story that is hard-won and also demanded interpersonal decisions, as Nico Schiesewitz states:
"Not always do 2 people change in the same direction, no matter how close, similar or the same they were at one point in their lives. 'Changes' reflects exactly these ups and downs, the light and the dark sides of a relationship's evolution, reminding us that we are all in flux and in the process our relationships can't always hold up under these changes."

I can’t give up
If you can’t love me who I am right now
I’m better off on my own"
