Theatrical alt-rock duo Observe The 93rd release their music video for “Go Ahead.” This release marks the final piece from their previous LP an eeriness to everythingand serves as a message for fans to stay vigilant as the band prepares to embark on their next musical chapter with more new releases on the way in 2023. True to Observe The 93rd’s message of self-exploration and awareness, the lyrics tap into the depths of vocalist Derek Henry’s psyche as he rebels against the power of his mental health challenges.
“‘Go Ahead’ and the accompanying video filmed by Josh Nesmith, is an attempt at tracing back the origins of my own depression and anxiety, as well as a statement of rebellion against their power to ultimately cause my demise.” -Derek Henry, Observe The 93rd
Alternative rock band Observe The 93rd was voted the best rock band of 2021 by the Central Pennsylvania Music Awards and for good reason. The name, ‘Observe the 93rd,’ is a reference to the Observable Universe, which is 93 billion lightyears in diameter and constantly expanding, and a Da Vinci quote, “Observation is the key to understanding.” As time passes, more light is able to reach us and more of the universe is revealed to us. This sentiment poetically intertwines with their musical and personal mission statement to collect experiences that broaden our perspectives and allow us to better understand ourselves as time passes, just like the universe.
Each raw, visceral track is guided by feelings, experiences, failures, triumphs, suffering, joy, and any other abstract internal entity that yearns to be expressed through melody. With every Observe The 93rd release comes a new puzzle piece in their musical galaxy that is intertwined with easter eggs and secret hints that tie all of their releases into one expansive story about life. Vocalist/guitarist Derek Henry and drummer Dylan Zepp created more than just a band, it’s a universe for fans to dive into.
Beyond their fanbase, they have received recognition for their performances in 13 major cities alongside Foxy Shazam, Three Days Grace, Stone Temple Pilots, Puddle of Mudd, Flyleaf, Drowning Pool, Saliva, Joyous Wolf, P.O.D., Seether, and more.
