Counterparts Premiere New Song “Wings Of Nightmares”, Announce Fall Tour

Counterparts have premiered a new song titled “Wings Of Nightmares.” This track is from their new album “Nothing Left To Love,” which will be released on November 1.

Brendan Murphy said the following about the song:

“[It’s] a no brainer first single because it’s a perfect blend of old and new Counterparts. Sounds like if we tried to rewrite a song off ‘Prophets‘ in our late 20’s. It’s one of the most ‘Counterparts‘ songs on the record if that makes sense. I think it’s got something for everyone.”

He also added the following about the album:

“I know I’ve said this for every record we’ve ever released but… ‘Nothing Left To Love‘ is best Counterparts record. I wouldn’t hold your breath for anything ground breaking, but as we grow and progress we just get better at writing Counterparts songs, and that’s all we’ve wanted to do. If you fuck with the band you’ll probably love it.”

01. “Love Me”
02. “Wings Of Nightmares”

Counterparts Premiere “Selfishly I Sink” Video

Counterparts have premiered a new video for their song “Selfishly I Sink,” via Stereogum. That track will appear on the band’s new EP “Private Room,“ which will be available on September 7. That effort will feature three b-sides, including “Monument,” “Selfishly I Sink,” and “We Forgive.” Frontman Brendan Murphy commented:

“‘Selfishly I Sink‘ is one of the few b-sides from ‘You’re Not You Anymore‘. Although it doesn’t really have a place on the record I’m still excited that the song finally gets to see the light of day. Lyrically, it’s a song about forcing yourself to find love where it doesn’t exist. It’s about trying to fill a void with things that are equally as empty.”
