Florida southern hard rockers FALL TO JUNE have unleashed their thought-provoking new music video for “Delta Breakdown” via VEVO. “Delta Breakdown” conveys an inspiring and personal story of healing, growth, and dismissal of demons through self-reflection, told by FTJ vocalist and lead songwriter Ben Badger.

Badger states, “I wrote Delta Breakdown as a lesson’s learned type tune. In traveling back and forth to Arkansas since 2005 (I call both places home), I have had a lot of time to think about highs and lows. I guess I could have easily called the song “Delta Epiphany”.”
When listening to the lyrics, the listener experiences Badger poetically describe his southern-scenery-soaked trip between Florida and Arkansas, whilst being overcome with emotions often fueled by alcohol. The story describes how these times impacted him to put down the bottle and change his life for the better.
Take me to Tupelo
I need to feel The King in me
Sing me sweet muddy water
Oh, that magic
Moved by the old high cotton
Twice the man I used to be
Oh, Delta Breakdown
Director Heather Burkey adds, “It was important for me to help FALL TO JUNE tell their story in a cinematic way as well as have a kick ass time doing it!”
The “Delta Breakdown” video is produced by Meagen Gibson and executive produced by Brad Stewart and Josh Like for Ballistic Audio productions, and was filmed in and around Jacksonville, Florida, including Little Talbot Island Beach in South Georgia, Pumpkin Hill, and Ginger’s Place in Jacksonville Beach.

FALL TO JUNE is undoubtedly about to release their breakout album.

In addition, the band boasts brimming talents Dan Mickler (guitars) and Ben Badger (vocals). The band is managed by Brad Stewart of Ballistic Audio Productions, known for his work with Puddle of Mudd and his time as an original member of Shinedown.
