We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Cardinals Pride’s new song “Breach” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming album The Quiet Erosion, which is scheduled to be released through New Damage Records on November 10th. You can pre-order the album here.
Alexis Pare of Cardinals Pride commented on the song:
“To me, ‘Breach’ is one of the most interesting songs on the record. Its uplifting melodies are in total contrast with the lyrics, which are among the most personal I’ve allowed myself to sing on this record.
I was in a very bad place when I wrote the lyrics to this song. It was in October 2015 and I was experiencing panic attacks at a rate that I just couldn’t bear alone. At the time, I was terrified that the person who allowed me to feel some kind of warmth would leave me because I was unable to make her feel loved in return. All I wanted to do with that song was to apologize for being weak and completely disconnected from the rest of the world.
I am incredibly grateful that, at the time, Didier had already written a few songs for us to work on. Writing, either in French or in English, has always been an outlet for me. To this day, listening to music while writing is still the only way I’ve found to deal with anxiety.”
Cardinals Pride, a Quebec City based hardcore/metal band, blends melodic and screaming vocals with aggressive rhythms and melody.
Established in 2010, the six-piece band has been touring relentlessly across Canada since the release of their EP Priorities in 2012. At the beginning of 2015, the band recorded an EP called Those People will Never Die with Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland at Atrium Audio in Lancaster, PA. The EP included the massive hit single “Bearers,” which has been streamed on Spotify in excess of 313K+.
Their latest recording Priorities was released in May 2016. Their newest offering and debut full-length The Quiet Erosion was produced by Cameron McLellan (Protest the Hero) and the drums were engineered by Dean Hadjichristou at All Buttons In Studio in Ottawa, a studio famous for its work on this style, with Parkway Drive and Protest the Hero on their credits.
