In honor of Suicide Prevention Week, On The Cinder present “Lifeline,” a track from their upcoming album Lamplighter, out September 17 via Flower House Records.

“‘Lifeline’ is the leading track on Lamplighter; we felt it was really imperative to have it opening up the record after all we’ve been through since our last release in 2016,” the band explains. “A prevalent theme on the album is the losses that come from growing up in a time where it seems everyone is struggling in some way, whether it be with their mental health, substance abuse, poverty, etc. The perspective of this song isn’t meant to be judgmental or morally righteous, but rather reflecting on how to help the ones you love after losing someone you are very close with. There are always means to get help, the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline is available 24/7 at 800-273-8255, or chat with a counselor at https://suicidepreventionlifeline.org/.”

On The Cinder is a three-piece melodic hardcore punk band from Buffalo, NY, and Lamplighter is OTC’s sophomore record. The band has been touring consistently since 2013, and this will be the follow-up to their first album, The Fight Against Ourselves, which came out in 2016 on Between The Days Records.
