Directly on the heels of their full-length debut album release on April 10 (Krian Music
Group), The Strange Familiar will be featured on the CW's hit show, The Vampire Diaries. Now in its 3rd season, the supernatural drama will feature the track "Redemption
" off Chasing Shadows, on its April 19 episode.
Written by Kira Leyden (vocals/piano), Jeff Andrea (guitar) and Nicholas Sainato (drums), "Redemption
" is one of the most powerful songs on the album. Kicking off with Leyden's expressive piano and soulful vocals, the track builds to a dramatic guitar solo supported by a bedrock bass line. The song, much like the rest of Chasing Shadows, shows off the band's ability to write timeless music that connects with their audience on a deep emotional level. "Redemption
" carries a message that no matter how difficult or dark life becomes, there is always hope.
"We feel like "Redemption
" is a perfect fit for The Vampire Diaries because so many characters on the show are struggling with their own demons and the darkness in their hearts," explained Leyden. "We think our fans are always pulling for the characters to do the right thing, to find redemption."
No strangers to TV, The Strange Familiar have also been featured on ABC Family's The Secret Life of the American Teenager, Jane by Design and Switched at Birth, ABC's Brothers and Sisters, NBC's The Biggest Loser, Teen Nick's Degrassi, and the Lifetime Movie Network's The 19th Wife.
