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.

"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.

No one is entirely what they may think or claim to be, even the most insightful among us. Moreover, today's technological trends and social platforms seem to have amplified our tendency toward self-delusion." He continues: "Maintaining a healthy sense of humility and open-mindedness can be challenging under more traditio
