DISTRICT 13 released their new video for the song "Is This the Way" from their current album "SOMA". With "Is This the Way" the 3 guys from U.K. show, that they also have a knack for ballads. A ballad that is not only melodically powerful, but whose lyrics also get under your skin.
"Is This the Way" was originally written by the singer, Jon Wild, as an acoustic version. At a time when Rich Vanderpuije (bass), Asen Milushev (drums) and he did not know each other. At a time which was anything but easy. The key questions are: Do we ever make the right choices in life? Do we ever find a place or a time that feels right? . . .
Personal Quote of Jon Wild:
“I felt lost at the time of writing this song and
could not see the light at the end of the tunnel.”

together when Asen (Drums) and Richard (Bass) placed an advert for a singer to
