So what have Chandler Massey (Ex-Will) and Casey Deidrick (Ex-Casey) been doing since they both departed Days of our Lives?  Well, partly they are making music and a new music video with their band, And Still I Rise!  And today, the band has released a music video of their cover of Miley Cyrus top hit, “Wrecking Ball”!

Now, And Still I Rise version of the Miley tune is quite different than the original … think the sound of rock band Linkin Park with a more heavy metal twist!

The band consists of:  Casey Deidrick (Vocals), Chandler Massey (Keyboards/Vocals), Stephen Haynes (Guitar/Vocals), Michael Gross (Guitar/Vocals) and Josh Bonaparte (Bass/Vocals).

In the newly released music video it seems like a night of pseudo-frat boy fun, complete with liquor and a bong, goes awry when a ghost joins the party!  However, take a listen as you watch the video down to the great vocals of Chandler Massey and Michael Gross!

Now, watch “Wrecking Ball” with the guys after the jump! Then, let us know what you thought of the bands sound, seeing Chandler and Casey again, the video contents, and if you like And I Still Rise version of the tune better than Ms. Miley’s?

It is sad to see these guys collect money through Kickstarter to produce ridiculously poor music videos like the last 2 I have seen. They are awful in my opinion.

I sincerely hope the other guys follow Chandler Massey’s lead and enroll / or return to college for an education and an earnest future.

What a shame and a waste of time and resources.

Libby, for the cover of Miley Cyrus’ song, they didn’t collect money through Kickstarter. They did that for the song “65 Roses” and it was to raise awareness for the devastating effects that Cystic Fibrosis (CF) has on people that suffer from it. The music is metal and probably not your type of music but it was certainly not a ridiculously poor music video! The acting was to show a person with CF, struggling to stay alive and I think it was ridiculously WELL DONE! Matter of taste I guess. The “Wrecking Ball” song was hilarious and it seems like… Read more »

Wrecking Ball is good fun but what’s with the “ghost” symbolically I guess for something the group conquered? Or someone. Like to know if you do. All big fans here.

I think the “ghost” conquered one of the band’s members. Symbolically and literally..

I am far from a metal fan but AISR is really doing a great job. Yea I listened because of Chandler and Casey. They made a video that is a riot. Absolutely is a frat party. And really after seeing that skank Miley doing Wrecking Ball. These guys totally improved on the song.

True, we all have different tastes. I am familiar with CF. We had a member of my extended family pass away from the disease at age 18. It was tragic. I still think that there are much better ways to bring awareness for CF – especially with $30k. Chandler Massey is a multi talented individual. I know very little of the other members of the group. These are young guys with potential and hope they all pursue worthwhile endeavors.

This version…WAY better than anything Miley Cyrus could have done! I am a rock/metal fan, and this ASIR version makes me like the song; the bands’, not MC’s version. Casey and Chandler are doing a rockin job with their band, and I cant wait to see what else they release. I cannot stop listening to “Sixty Five Roses”, and their video for that song is bitchin’! And Still I Rise is one of my new fave bands, and I think Chandler has a great voice! Casey is rockin it too! Way to go guys! Congrats, and keep on ROCKING!

I would like to hear them sing a more conservative song – one without such background noise because the voices sound nice, but background noise took away from the song. As for the video, it was not my cup of tea, but I don’t begrudge others who enjoyed it. Do a different song/video so I can enjoy the voices.
