When asked about the video, Danny Roselle explains; “Breathe Again is a song about going up against the odds time and time again and the sacrifices that are constantly being made to follow your dream. It’s a song about the reality of going after that dream and how it can really affect everyone else around you. It’s about believing in “that moment” and It’s about realizing how special that moment is. The moment those lights go down and it’s just the 5 of you making it happen. It’s that moment that keeps me, Quig, Chris, Nashville and Nick all constantly going forward.”
