HARTFORD, Conn. - Connecticut-based progressive rockers Enemy Remains today unveil the first single and video for "No Faith in Humanity" from their upcoming October release of the same name.

The single features a timely subject matter, touching on the current political climate in America. "We choose this track because of the strong message regarding what's going on with our world today," said guitarist Tommy "The Beast" Blardo. "With the effect of today's political views, we felt this was appropriate, and we hope the fans will relate to it. We hope people can totally get behind the message and try resolve some of the hate in the world."

Enemy Remains was formed by Blardo and original Fates Warning drummer Steve Zimmerman a decade ago. What began as means of musical expression for the pair has since grown into a hard rock force of nature with driving rhythms and a progressive edge. The group, now rounded out by vocalist Frank Morin, Scott Kadish and bassist Andy Majewski, has since shared the stage with the likes of Alice Cooper, Queensryche and Heaven and Hell, as well as having the honor of playing the 20,000-seat XL Center in an opening ceremony for the Hartford Wolf Pack, the New York Rangers' AHL affiliate.

The video for "No Faith in Humanity" was directed by Edwin Escobar, an acclaimed Connecticut-based director specializing top-notch music videos. "The video shoot was just amazing," Blardo said. "Working with a professional like Edwin Escobar was a no-brainer. He made this shooting stress free for all of us." The result is a slick, performance-based video with intermittent clips that tie in the song's message.

Enemy Remains' new EP will be released October 30. The video for "Now Faith in Humanity" can be viewed here:
