Rap-metal artist ANDREW W. BOSS has revealed a video for “Forever,” the latest video from his album The Arrival.
“‘Forever’ is a song about my ability to use the darkness and light of my life to succeed,” BOSS says. “The ability to recognize that the bad things that I’ve lived through have helped me to become the man I am today, and to embrace those lessons, not to suppress them. It also is about me using my music to overcome the darkness – not to rid myself of it but to acknowledge it and overcome it.”
Prior to COVID-19 hitting, BOSS was slated to join Saliva, Powerman 5000, Adema and Flaw on the Nu Metal Revival tour. The cancellation of the highly anticipated tour inspired the video for “Patience,” an ode to perseverance during a trying time.

BOSS first caught the music bug at age 10, after attending his brother’s band’s concert in downtown Salt Lake City. Weaned on a musical diet of Metallica, Korn, Tupac, Beastie Boys, Mudvayne and the like, BOSS began to enjoy bands and musicians that were different and special, willing to experiment outside of mainstream artists and sounds. He started writing and recording hip hop influenced music back in 2003 but it wasn’t until he began playing in a band with his brother Flip that BOSS’ musical vision became clearer.
The ANDREW W. BOSS project started to take shape in 2016, as BOSS teamed up once again with his brother Flip and brother Adam. Together with a host of talented musicians, BOSS recorded 2017’s Invincible, 2019’s Left Alone and The Arrival.
Released last year, The Arrival was produced and engineered by Jim Fogarty (All That Remains, Killswitch Engage) and features guest appearances by Cory Michalski and Jeremy Tabor (CO-OP), Rob Rivera (Nonpoint), Pablo Viveros (Chelsea Grin), 5280 Mystic, G-Mo Skee and Jamie Madrox (Twiztid).
A limited run of live dates is currently scheduled for this winter at venues with strict COVID safety measures in place.
