RewardPhiladelphia emo band Reward have premiered a new video for their track Hooked. The song is taken from their just-released EP Painted Desperation, which dropped on June 25th via Mutant League Records. Vocalist Rob Blackwell has said this about both the new track and EP:

“On the surface, it’s really just about my cousin who has down syndrome. I have never once seen him upset or unhappy for more than maybe three seconds at a time. He wakes up and is simply excited to live and be alive. He thoroughly enjoys every moment and that is amazing and inspiring to me. So in this song I wanted to honor his mind and express my mourning for his window of opportunity, but to juxtapose it with how much I love and admire him for cherishing every day and every moment.”

(on the EP)…“It’s about being prompted with seemingly huge life decisions and the uneasiness that accompanies them. It’s about searching for and needing someone or something to depend on”.
