Thieves Steal Like Moths To Flames’ Trailer

Unfortunately, Like Moths To Flames’ trailer was recently stolen. The band said the following about that on Twitter:

“Long story short.. Had our trailer stolen during this break at home. I’m not doing a gofund bc honestly I hate that type of dynamic, but I am going to drop some Moths stickers & decals into our shop for a weekend sale. Will have a link for you guys tonight when I get shit ready.”

“People fucking suck man. Trying to find the energy to get through the week so we can get back on the road. Love yinz.”

Like Moths To Flames Premiere New Song “Views From Halfway Down”

Like Moths To Flames have premiered a new song titled “Views From Halfway Down.” This track is from the band’s new EP “Pure Like Porcelain,” which will be released on November 5. Vocalist Chris Roetter commented:

“This song is the first time I’ve ever approached themes surrounding addiction. I think I tried to put myself in a place of morbid euphoria. Writing from a spot that felt like I was stuck between wanting to be better and wanting to remain in the state of mind of feeding whatever is driving the addiction. The view from halfway down is that time when you’re falling, where very little time passes but you see so much of your life passing by.”

Like Moths To Flames To Release New EP “Pure Like Porcelain” In November, Premiere New Song “The Preservation Of Hate”

Like Moths To Flames will be releasing a new EP, titled “Pure Like Porcelain,” on November 5. You can find the cover art and track listing for that effort below:

“Pure Like Porcelain” Track Listing:

01. “Ameliorate”
02. “Views From Halfway Down”
03. “The Preservation Of Hate”
04. “Gnashing Teeth”
05. “Do Not Resuscitate”

Guitarist Zach Pishney said the following about the EP:

“I think the EP is just a small taste of where we could possibly go next as a band. If ‘No Eternity‘ is considered a return-to-form album, then the EP is expanding those boundaries again. The coolest thing to me about the outcome of the EP is how extreme the shift in dynamic can be from song to song while still feeling like a cohesive listening experience as a whole.”

The effort’s first single, “The Preservation Of Hate,” can be found below. Vocalist Chris Roetter added the following about that track:

“I think we just wanted to have fun with this one. A lot of time, the focus for Moths is working cool chorus parts into the structure, so it’s a nice change of pace to have little singing on the track. It feels like a continuation of some of the more anger driven songs in catalogue and people who like the heavier side of the band will be pleased.”

Like Moths To Flames Premiere New Songs “Basilisk” & “Inherit The Tragedy”

Like Moths To Flames have released two new songs, “Basilisk” and “Inherit The Tragedy.” These tracks were recorded during the “No Eternity In Gold“ sessions and Chris Roetter had the following to say about them:

“Both ‘Basilisk‘ and ‘Inherit The Tragedy‘ are songs that I was super torn on cutting from the record. ‘Basilisk‘ covers the experience of being so rooted in your own problems that you’re detached from what’s happening around you. I think we all tend to get stuck in letting our struggles become our identity. ‘Inherit The Tragedy‘ follows the more classic themes that band has offered out in the past. We’ve never been a stranger to writing songs focused on cutting the chord from someone who becomes dead weight.”

Like Moths To Flames Premiere New Song “Killing What’s Underneath”

Like Moths To Flames have premiered a new song titled “Killing What’s Underneath.” This track is from the band’s new album “No Eternity In Gold,” which will be released tomorrow (October 30).

Like Moths To Flames Premiere “Selective Sacrifice” Video

Like Moths To Flames have premiered a new video for their new song “Selective Sacrifice.” This track is from the band’s new album “No Eternity In Gold,” which will be released on October 30. Chris Roetter commented:

“‘Selective Sacrifice‘ encompasses my on-going struggle with faith and religion. Anyone who’s listened to the band over the years knows that I am no stranger to being vocal about my concerns surrounding the topic. I think as I’ve gotten older, my tolerance for the lack of compassion that’s often shown is almost nonexistent. There are some morbid realities written within the song but mostly cover the conversations I have internally with myself. I think too much of the focus is what’s next or what comes after. The reality is that no one really knows and we genuinely have one opportunity here to make the best of what we’ve been given.”

Like Moths To Flames Premiere New Song “YOTM”

Like Moths To Flames have premiered a new song titled “YOTM.” This track is from the band’s new album “No Eternity In Gold,” which will be released on October 30. Chris Roetter commented:

“Over the last few years, you might’ve seen Moths posting around YOTM. We’ve been no stranger to hardships throughout the bands career and YOTM kinda became the motto and driving force for the band to better itself. Year Of The Moth is about giving one more glimpse into those struggles and finally allowing myself to move on. You can either fall victim to your problems or you can work yourself out of them.”

Like Moths To Flames Premiere “Habitual Decline” Video, Reveal Details For New Album “No Eternity In Gold”

Like Moths To Flames have premiered a new video for their new song “Habitual Decline.” This track is from the band’s new album “No Eternity In Gold,” which will be released on October 30.

Chris Roetter said the following about the new song:

“‘Habitual Decline’ encapsulates a lot of what I’ve been trying to convey in my lyrics since the band started. Sometimes you give your all and you feel like you’ve got nothing left. That echoes through a lot of what I try to do and accomplish, even outside of the band. This is kind of a ‘shedding skin’ feeling for me. Moving on and just accepting that I’m where I’m at and dealing with it.”

He also added the following about the new record:

“The 11 tracks focus on overcoming 11 separate issues that I’m dealing with when I wake up every day. Most prevalently, it’s about struggling with yourself and your own feelings about your ultimate worth. These songs probably showcase more of my own mind than our previous work. I live my life like an open book, and we in the band are all very spiritual people who are in touch with their emotions. I feel that is something that society neglects; we are taught to bury and suppress negative feelings, when we believe that by embracing those emotions, you learn a huge amount about yourself.”

“No Eternity In Gold” Track Listing:

01. “The Anatomy Of Evil”
02 “Habitual Decline”
03. “Burn In Water, Drown In Flame”
