Sam Ray has shared one other single from his forthcoming Teen Suicide album, honeybee table at the butterfly feast. ‘loss of life want’ follows the beforehand unveiled songs ‘coyote (2015-2021)’ and ‘get excessive, breathe underwater (#3)’. Test it out beneath.
“This new tune ‘loss of life want’ was one of many first tracks recorded for the report, again in 2019,” Ray defined in an announcement. “I recorded the demo of it first, after which Kitty and Jaryk (Micah) helped me flesh it out, with the previous in the end recording vocals for it and the latter recording drums to exchange my horrible demo drums. At this level, I additionally re-recorded the guitars and my vocals as nicely, leaving solely the very primary shell of the tune untouched—so it’s form of like a phoenix in that manner, or a constructing that will get constructed out of the bones of an older, principally collapsing constructing.”
It’s a tune about somebody we hate—actually about a few folks we hate—terrible, terrible individuals who’ve achieved terrible, terrible issues after which rolled round knowingly within the mess they created, like canine rolling gleefully in their very own shit. We kind of pulled collectively a few these folks into one, for the tune, one new, horrible concept of an individual. Some folks actually are simply pure evil. I’d say extra however that’s actually all there’s. Regardless of that every one, we tried to drag again right into a much less private place, as is the character of our band at its finest, no less than in my eyes. Quite than get into the specifics, into my very own emotions or no matter, all of it serves as a form of launchpad for one thing greater, broader, and extra fascinating to us than simply vitriol – not that it lacks for it, both musically or lyrically.
At its core, it’s simply kind of a pure Teen Suicide monitor – musically, we began it off by riffing on a brand new model of ‘the way in which we had been with folks’ and went from there. I got here up with the dual guitar lead harmonized tapping half once we had been on tour with Thursday, riffing on the aforementioned outdated ‘my very own hell’ period monitor – and it caught. That was all the time ~the~ concept for me, and all the things else got here naturally after, falling into place pretty rapidly. There’s quite a lot of little buried particulars in there, too, regardless of it being a reasonably simple tune, in comparison with quite a lot of the report. I believe that’s what occurs when you could have quite a lot of time to work on and end one thing, and that’s actually one of many issues I really like about it most. There’s all the time a brand new buried screaming vocal you discover in an odd, in any other case instrumental half, or a brand new panned concord, a swirling backwards guitar beneath the remaining, a canine barking faraway throughout the home picked up in a selected mic, and so forth.
