Well heck. Every Time I Die released two new tracks. It is in no way clear whether these tracks are from an upcoming release (but they probably are) from the email their label (Epitaph, not that it’s a mystery, I’m just clarifying) sent us, but the tracks exist.
They are out in the world! You can drop everything right now if you want, and check out the new tracks “A Colossal Wreck” and “Desperate Pleasures” below:
Of the new tracks, vocalist Keith Buckley offers the very enlightening statement that they now wish you to read:
“Two sides of the same reactionary coin. While ‘A Colossal Wreck’ looks around at the current state of the world and says ‘life is a punishment and only the worst of us thrive’ and, ‘Desperate Pleasures’ takes a more optimistic approach and renounces the nihilistic/accelerationist attitude of the voice that came before.
“It says that without hope, even in the face of such universal anguish, only death is certain, and to give up now when those around us need it most is a treacherous act of pure cowardice. That said, I’m not sure which is worse, being a coward or being a cynic. Probably a coward. At least cynics have a sense of humor.”
Aaaaaaaannnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd … Every Time I Die will be doing a live show on December 19 at 2 p.m. PT/5 p.m. ET. Info and ticketing here.
