In the words of Mick King of New Saviors: "This song is our most ballsy callout to date. It’s about people who hide behind religion to justify their hateful words and actions. We poured our hearts, souls, and personal experiences into this track, and we want to use our platform to address issues like this because nobody has an excuse to do harm to others."

LONG STORY SHORT: New Saviors' latest song, "Garden Of Lies," is a powerhouse of sound and lyrical depth that pushes the boundaries of their genre. Fierce drums and electric guitars create a sonic landscape that commands attention, while the standout feature is how the female vocals intertwine seamlessly with the more aggressive side of the male vocals, a signature of the genre, resulting in a compelling juxtaposition. Mick King's vocal talent shines brightly, showcasing an impressive vocal range.

At 2:13, the song takes a captivating turn with an atmospheric break, building space and adding a layer of anticipation that keeps the listener engaged.

What sets "Garden Of Lies" apart is its profound lyrical depth. The band's critique of individuals who manipulate religion to rationalize hate and divisive beliefs becomes vivid as they ingeniously adapt the structure of the common Christian bedtime prayer, "Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep." In a dark and captivating twist, they sing, "Go and rest your weary head, regret the way you made your bed/'Cause if you die before you wake, your tortured soul is mine to take." This reinterpretation of a well-known prayer creates a thought-provoking and emotionally charged musical experience that underscores the theme of using religion to justify hurtful ideologies.
