New Jersey based alternative-metalcore band This Curse are previewing their new EP From The Darkest Places with a stream for the title track. As you can hear below, this album will feature a unique balance of heavy riffs, melody and cacophonic vocals and will further expand on the band’s songwriting capabilities.
Commenting on the song, lead singer Ethan Kennedy said, “This track is about the cynicism that comes from growing up. We’ve always been the kind of band that kept our head down and focused on our goals, but it’s hard not to get wrapped up in the negativity that surrounds us when you’re involved with so many different people and personalities.”
Singer and guitarist Joey Galleta further stated, “We walked into this album with the intention of doing something different than what we’ve done before. We had a bunch of different ideas on the table, so we decided to just write way more material than we ever have before and see where it took us. There were certain songs that stuck out very early on (‘Trauma Bond’ and ‘Usurper’) that helped steer us in a direction as we progressed in the writing process. After roughly 30 songs written, we were left with some tracks that were more comparative to what we may have done in the past and others that had a whole different vibe to them. We went with the songs that fit the latter.”
