Judah & The Lion didn't hold back on their new album Pep Talks. Things were going great for the band but behind the scenes for Judah Akers, his personal life was in a tailspin. The new single is "Why Did You Run?" and it's one of the best on the record.
Judah said in a Facebook post about Why Did You Run?": "This song came out in the midst of the lowest points in my life. I felt alone-broken-hurt-confused blah blah blah. It sucked. I found it hard to speak honestly about what was going on in my life and this song came out in the most real way. If you’re in the middle of your own version of brokenness —please know your story matters. Your story matters so much —but it doesn’t define you. You get to define it."
Today they released the new "Why Did You Run?" video, mixing the sad song with a happy theme of high school love with some really cool animation. Check it out!
