“Scars of You” is a personal song for vocalist Jaycee Clark, as the track discusses balancing two loves – music and a relationship. “You need them both the same, but ultimately one is always pushing you to make a decision.”
Jaycee adds, “We decided on “Scars of You” as the second single to showcase the contrast you can expect on Choose Your Own Adventure. It demonstrates just how far we were willing to step outside of what we typically do to create a song that really captures the emotion of the lyrics.
When we sent [our director] Justin this song, he had this amazing idea to shoot a super modern video in a swanky hotel where I’m essentially getting ready for a show after what appears to be a rough night. To be honest, I was kind of freaking out about shooting the video because it’s so far outside of how I see myself. But I absolutely trusted his vision and knew he wouldn’t do anything to make me feel uncomfortable or look stupid. Typically, when we do videos, we always feature a hint of comedy, but he really pushed us to present ourselves in a way that was much more grown up than we’ve previously displayed and I couldn’t be more excited about how it all came together.”

Infectious pop hooks, exhilarating vocals, hair-raising riffs, and unforgettable melodies are only a fraction of what listeners should expect to hear on Choose Your Own Adventure. On the album, A LIGHT DIVIDED explores personal, relevant topics – ranging from relationships to mental health – inspired by their own lives and losses. At the age that important decisions they make now could impact the development of the rest of their lives, all five members of A LIGHT DIVIDED put their own experiences to paper on Choose Your Own Adventure, creating a relatable experience for listeners.
A LIGHT DIVIDED features the powerhouse pipes of frontwoman Jaycee Clark, plus instrumentation from drummer Adam Smith, bassist Mike Underwood and guitarists Doug Weichbrodt and Colt Crevar. Choose Your Own Adventure was produced by Kile Odell (Motionless In White, Cane Hill) and Joshua Landry (Letters From The Fire, Motionless In White).
As proven by their work ethic and determination to succeed coupled with their high-intensity live show, A LIGHT DIVIDED have amassed a growing underground army of dedicated fans. Their unique blend of rock and metal with pop sensibility has landed them opportunities to perform on the Vans Warped Tour and with national acts such as In This Moment, Red Jumpsuit Apparatus and Crowbar.
