NEW ALBUM A EULOGY FOR THOSE STILL HERE
OUT OCTOBER 7TH VIA NEW DAMAGE RECORDS
Ontario-based metalcore heavyweights, Counterparts, are gearing up for the release of their upcoming full-length, A Eulogy For Those Still Here, due out October 7th from New Damage Records. The record finds Counterparts tapping into a deep sense of dread that pushes their visceral sound to even greater extremes. It’s an album that revolves around uncertainty but results in the group’s most definitive statement to date.
Counterparts have shared the album’s third single, “Bound To The Burn,” a blast of crushingly heavy guitars and unrelenting drums that also highlights the band’s ability to melody into all of the aggression. The track follows “Unwavering Vow” and “Whispers of Your Death” (which garnered attention from the likes of Stereogum, Revolver, BrooklynVegan, Exclaim!, and more), and continues to tease an even more ominous Counterparts than ever before.

“Bound to the Burn” is about my personal frustrations that come with playing music for a living. I’m sure it goes without saying, but I do love being a part of Counterparts… though sometimes I feel like Counterparts/I are easily replaceable in the world of heavy music. This song is a metaphor for how I’ve let the pressure of churning out new music and constantly being on the road “kill” me in a sense. But here I am, still “Bound to the Burn” because when I DO consider the other options I have for a career, I end up drawing a blank and I can’t think of anything else I’d rather do. I want to be here, but I don’t… I’m learning to balance the two.” – Brendan Murphy
