Credit: Hristo ShindovNew Years Day has premiered the video for “Skeletons,” a track off the band’s latest album, Unbreakable.

The clip, streaming now on YouTube, stars frontwoman Ash Costello holding a skull, Hamlet-style.

“It’s clear to me that ‘Skeletons’ is a favorite along the NYD fan community since day [one],” Costello says. “Something about this song resonates. The right mix between heavy, soft, strong and soft vocals really made it stand out on our record from the rest.”

“The song is about opening up and letting [who you] hide inside come out, so for that reason, I performed the song alone on the music video,” she continues.

“It’s tough because it makes you vulnerable as a rock front woman to be without your band but it changed the performance into something pretty unique from out other music videos.”

Unbreakable was released April 2019. It also includes the singles “Shut Up” and “Come for Me.”
