This is a track from their debut album, The Beauty Of Destruction. Jones said: "The moment I heard the music for 'As Bright As The Darkness', I knew what I was going to write."

    "This song is about the times I felt at my lowest. I've been fighting depression for years and I wish I had not waited so long to get help. Those who know depression, you are not alone. Just reach out."
  • Thes song's music video was produced in partnership with the You Rock Foundation, which aims to serve as a safe haven for those who have suffered from or are currently suffering from depression. The clip was created by John Rockovich, who is known for his work on In the Dead of Night (2013), Not Cool (2014) and Milkman (2015).
