The Primals (Darkest Hour, Etc.) Premiere New Song “Pity City”

The Primals (Darkest Hour, ex-Dead To Fall, etc.) have premiered a new song titled “Pity City.” This track is from the group’s debut album “All Love Is True Love,” which will be released on September 7,

John Henry (Darkest Hour) commented:

“This song originally came from a different project I was working on which was more electronic, using an old Univox drum machine and a bunch of layered synths and guitars. It stood out to me as more of a structured song than the rest from that session, so I decided to see if it would work with The Primals. Once Andrew added his version of the drumbeat and I heard it with Chad playing the driving bassline I knew it would work.

This one is definitely more on the poppy/pretty end of the spectrum of the album, and the only track that features a synth part. Lyrically, this track is a good representation of the album title, ‘All Love Is True Love‘, as it’s sort of a love song to everyone I’ve ever loved, even the ones who are out of my life. I think the last lines sum up the song fairly well: ‘Me and the ones I adore, I don’t believe there’s an end anymore, and we are nothing’.”

09/07 Los Angeles, CA – Hi-Hat
09/14 Washinton, DC – The Pinch
09/15 Brooklyn, NY – El Cortez Safari Room
