L.A. Based IAN ABEL BAND has released their new single, “Not Afraid to Die.” Produced by Jon Graber, “Not Afraid to Die” debuted as the theme for the Cody vs Darby TNT Championship match at AEW Full Gear 2020, the second of the band’s singles to be showcased on the popular professional wrestling company’s pay-per-view shows (2019 released “Shoes” was featured as the theme for the Dustin Rhodes versus Cody feud leading into AEW’s Double Or Nothing event).

“I wrote and recorded this song specifically for Cody Rhodes. It was originally intended to be the Double or Nothing, Cody vs Dustin, promo, but Cody preferred “Shoes”. At the time, AEW was just beginning and I wanted to write something that I thought captured Cody’s trailblazer like spirit. In hindsight, the song was better suited for the video package which included, Steve-O, Cody Rhodes and Darby Allin. Three very original performers who have paved their own way into history. Something I admire and am attempting to do myself.” – IAN ABEL
