ERRA Premiere New Song “Pull From The Ghost”

ERRA have premiered a new song titled “Pull From The Ghost.” You can check that out below:

Vocalist Jesse Cash commented:

“The song is told from the perspective of a kidnapper hoping his captive will choose to stay willingly, but ultimately deciding to free them when that doesn’t happen. The captor/captive dynamic spawned from the idea that relationships are too often means of ensnaring others to be subject to one’s own insecurities. I feel that to bury your insecurities in another person is to hold them as a kind of captive.

The song touches on consequently missing out on opportunities of meaningful connection by comparing present partners to past ones and never moving forward openly. What can’t be found in the present is pulled from memories of the past, and acceptance of the present is never reached. The captor chooses to be alone rather than subjugate another person to this cycle. It’s ultimately a song about a tendency to overanalyze in pursuit of perfection, which while bearing many merits, can also result in instances of self-sabotage.”

Guitarist Sean Price Announces His Departure From ERRA

Guitarist Sean Price has announced his departure from ERRA. A replacement has yet to be revealed.

Price commented:

“Hello everyone

It is time I break the news that I will no longer be playing with ERRA. I dedicated ten years of my life to the band, so this is incredibly bittersweet. Sweet because in the years leading up to now, my life has evolved in ways I could have never imagined, and I am happier than I ever have been. Bitter because it is sad to say goodbye.

However, this is not a sad departure. It is simply a new chapter for the band and me. Touring has felt more difficult part due to the recent pandemic. An already tough career choice seems only to get more challenging, but that’s why the band needs your support more than ever. I am ERRA’s biggest fan. You have no idea what the music and playing for you all did for me and my life. I am eternally grateful to all fans and my bandmates, whom I love very much. – Sean”

The band added:

“We support Sean 100% and he supports us moving forward. I know it may seem sudden, but this actually happened in November and was something we were all aware of on our shows in December and through the rollout of our Deluxe.

Sean played in ERRA for nearly 10 years and the memories we’ve shared together will always hold meaning for all of us. Being in a band is tough and time and again disrupts friendships, so it is with massive relief for all of us to be announcing this departure as a group of bestfriends. We wish nothing but the best for Sean in all the exciting things he has going on in his life. Nothing but love for our brother @literallyseanprice”

ERRA Release Cover Of Muse’s “Stockholm Syndrome”

ERRA have shared their cover of Muse‘s “Stockholm Syndrome.” This track is from the deluxe edition of the band’s self-titled album, which will be released on March 18.

Jesse Cash commented:

“The first time I heard Muse‘s ‘Stockholm Syndrome‘, I thought, ‘This song is begging to be covered by a metal band. It has aggressive riffs, soaring vocals, keyboard arpeggios, and a big ending breakdown. It has all the necessary materials to be contextualized into an ERRA song.

The chromatic guitar octaves in the verses also left me a lot of room to play with some chromatic groove riffs in the style of Meshuggah. I realized as long as I maintained the root notes of those original octaves, I could kind of be as creative as I wanted during those verses. I also adjusted the original tuning from Drop D to Drop E and tuned the guitar down an entire octave to make the song low, heavy, and more akin to the range ERRA generally tunes in.”

ERRA Premiere “Nigh To Silence” Music Video

ERRA have premiered a new video for their new song “Nigh To Silence.” This track is from the new deluxe edition of the band’s self-titled album, which will be released on March 18.

Vocalist Jesse Cash commented:

“During the end of 2020 and the start of 2021, we tried to take advantage of not being able to tour and having extra time at home. So while we were rolling out singles and announcing our self-titled record, we were also in the studio recording some new songs for a deluxe edition of the record. This was our favorite of the bunch.”

“The song is set on an empty earth observed by the moon. I intended to express as much loneliness as I could. Then, I thought of ‘walking in the shadow of my own ghost,’ which felt like the loneliest visual I could muster. I wrote the first line about how the process of writing music feels and my deeply internal fear of being forgotten or irrelevant: ‘Floating song, I caught in a dream and passed it on. Frail and fragile is the ghost that I will carry and time will swallow.’”

“Creative ideas seemingly spring up out of nowhere, are nurtured into complete works, and once that is done, I immediately begin moving on to the next thing, to the degree that by the time the song is out and people are hearing it for the first time, I’ve already kind of said my goodbye, mourned its loss, and moved on from it entirely.

This always feels sad, but also cathartic to hand the song over to the listeners and relinquish ownership of it. It feels necessary for me to grow as a musician and as a person, to constantly acknowledge a lack of ownership over anything but myself. It was really special for me to finally write a song about the quiet poignancy of writing songs themselves, and ‘Nigh To Silence‘ has become one of my favorites.”

ERRA Cancel European/UK Tour With Dayseeker, Brand Of Sacrifice, & Hollow Front

ERRA have cancelled their European/UK tour with Dayseeker, Brand Of Sacrifice, and Hollow Front. The trek was unable to move forward due to issues related to the coronavirus pandemic.

ERRA commented:

“We held out as long as possible to keep this tour going, but unfortunately, we have to cancel our EU/UK headliner in February.

To provide a little context, stricter regulations were introduced in Germany and elsewhere in Europe back in November, which have only tightened through the holidays. From what we’ve come to understand from our team in Europe, promoters in some of the countries we’re hitting (while technically allowed to put on shows) are limited to heavily reduced capacities (some as low as 25%). Along with this revelation, there are also the major financial risks associated with any of us testing positive for Covid, the primary risk being forced to forfeit our transportation rental on the spot and not only unable to play, but also being stranded in another continent without a means of transporting all of our gear.

Please bear in mind that at the time of announcing this tour last summer, these setbacks we’re clarifying were not in place nor anticipated to be a factor by February. A lot of this is new info and we held out as long as possible because rest assured, we did not want to cancel this run. This was our first headliner in EU, tickets were selling great, and we were looking forward to finally having a full production set over there. We’re flying by the seat of our pants like everyone else, but we’re at least relieved that this is the first time we’ve had to cancel a tour since the pandemic began. It sucks major, and we hope we don’t have to do it again.

One last thing to note, this is not a “reschedule,” but a “cancellation”. We absolutely will be making a EU headliner happen again asap, but the reason why we chose not to phrase this as a reschedule is simply because we don’t want to hold people’s ticket money for months, a year, or worse.

Thank you for reading, we hope you understand, and above all else, stay safe out there. We’ll see you as soon as possible.”

ERRA Premiere Video For New Version Of “Vanish Canvas” Featuring Spiritbox’s Courtney LaPlante

Spiritbox frontwoman Courtney LaPlante is featured on a new version of ERRA’s song “Vanish Canvas.” You can find a video for the updated take on the track below:

ERRA frontman J.T. Cavey commented:

“We’ve never had a guest feature before, even before my time in the band. ‘Vanish Canvas‘ is a very special song to Jesse and the rest of the band; it felt right if it were to be any song, it was this one. Courtney has been a longtime friend and extremely supportive of me, as well as ERRA; we are honored to have her be our first feature.”

Guitarist/vocalist Jesse Cash continued:

“‘Vanish Canvas‘ is my favorite song that ERRA has written, and Courtney’s presence on it makes it that much more impactful.”

LaPlante added:

“JT asked me to sing on this song, and I would have been honoured and excited no matter what song they had chosen for me. He sent me an unassuming mp3 to listen to titled ‘Karlsruhe’ and I was so excited when I pushed play that it turned out to be my favorite ERRA song, ‘Vanish Canvas‘, and the part they asked me to sing happened to be my favorite moment on the record.”
