The Difference Between Release Haunting New Single "Cold Comfort"

 


Ever since their respective bands toured together in 2017, guitarist Chris Wethington (of Softspoken) and drummer Cody Frain (of A Scent Like Wolves) entertained the idea of writing together in a new project. Four years later, after touring across the world, racking up millions of streams, and releasing Billboard charting albums separately, their ideas and talents have come together to create the perfect blend of progressive metalcore grooves and beautifully dissonant melodies.


Giving a voice to the music is Chris Roberts - the original vocalist of (formerly) post-hardcore band Emarosa (then also known as Corsets are Cages). Roberts played a large part in writing the first versions of most of the songs that would end up on Emarosa's breakout EP "This is Your Way Out", but parted ways with the band to see success in two other regional acts (The Revival Sound, Take Me Home) before taking a break from performing. Having shared the stage with Roberts while in his first band (Thwomp in the House of Boo), Wethington knew that Roberts' voice and vocal style was the perfect fit, and it turned out that after a long break to collect himself and refocus, Roberts, too, was ready. To round out the lineup, Wethington brought in Garrett Harper, whom he played alongside not only in Softspoken, but also in their mutual first band, Thwomp. 


Check out their new single "Cold Comfort" below:




"Cold Comfort" Concept:

From Chris Roberts (vocals): Literal meaning - a recurring nightmare I had for weeks where i'm infatuated with this female ghost that only wanted to kill me. I would wake up super weirded out and have to shake it off.


As a Metaphor- "she" is my weakness, my vice. No matter how much I try it's like she's always coming for me. An overwhelming sense of dread becomes all I can feel. Ghosts and demons are the things I should let go, but they haunt me.

Voi and Luger told us: “This is now just a continuation of what we have been doing all our lives and only now in our 'older age' we have done something serious. Of course when it comes to music, at least for us, we wanted to record an album with some of the best musicians in metal music and the ones that we listened to when we were kids. We are not saying that this is something special what we are doing, but this means a lot to us and basically we are doing this for ourselves and our closest friends first but also for all the metal fans around the world who we hope are going to like our new music.
