Make Them Suffer have premiered a new single titled “Contraband.” This track features Spiritbox’s Courtney LaPlante and an official video for it can be found below:
Make Them Suffer’s Sean Harmanis commented:
“‘Contraband‘ came together centered around one of the riffs in the song that we’d aptly named the ‘floppy fingers’ riff. We’d actually had this [riff] in the bank since way back in 2016. As the song came together, we decided that it was a great opportunity to include Make Them Suffer‘s first-ever guest feature, and we couldn’t have picked anyone better than Courtney! She was a joy to work with and showed such a great enthusiasm toward the song and her parts.”
“Lyrically, the song is about everything and nothing at the same time. It’s about relationships with friends and family. But it’s also a low-key political song, as well as an expression of the frustrations surrounding COVID and its impact on our lives, particularly as members of the music community.
‘Contraband‘ is a build up — the result of two years without musical catharsis.”
