The Skinny: London metalcore quintet Counting Days will release their debut album Liberated Sounds on October 16th via Mascot Records/Mascot Label Group (Black Label Society, Gojira, Joe Bonamassa). Listen to the title track and first single, “Liberated Sounds,” just below.

As the beating heart and song-writing partnership in TRC, Charlie Wilson (Guitar) along with Lasselle Lewis (Drums) began broadening and pushing their boundaries as Charlie explains; “I had some songs that I had been writing that didn’t quite fit with the band so I sent them over to Lasselle to see what he thought and he was blown away and totally into it.”

Produced by Fredrik Nordstrom (At The Gates, Arch Enemy, In Flames, Opeth, Architects, Bring Me the Horizon) at his Studio Fredman in Gothenburg, Sweden, Liberated Sounds‘ subject matter hits on a number of recurring themes; mortality, relationships and religion all return throughout. Elaborating on the lyrical content Thomas reveals; “This wasn’t a conscious effort, they are just things that really struck a chord. Even the title, Liberated Sounds, was inspired by the feeling we all got from writing it, five mates writing music without restrictions or judgement.”
