Chamber Premiere “Numb (Transfuse)” Video

Chamber have premiered a new video for their new song “Numb (Transfuse).” This track is from the band’s new album “Cost Of Sacrifice,” which will be released on October 23. Guitarist Gabe Manuel commented:

“We finished writing ‘Numb (Transfuse)‘ pretty last minute in the studio. We had all the individual parts written already, but Randy LeBoeuf helped us bring the general arrangement of the song together. Lyrically, this song is a pretty vivid summary of the similar things that every member of the band was going through at the time, and it’s one of my favorites on the record.”

Chamber Premiere New Song “Visions Of Hostility”

Chamber have premiered a new song titled “Visions Of Hostility.” This track is from the band’s new album “Cost Of Sacrifice,” which will be released on October 23. Gabe Manuel told Decibel the following:

“‘Visions Of Hostility‘ is definitely one of the most aggressive and direct songs on the record. We wanted to write a song that was shorter and heavier overall to break up the chaos of the first half of the album a little bit. Jacob and I wrote the lyrics together about our similar experiences growing up with absent/abusive fathers. This is definitely an angrier and more confrontational song than we usually write, and it brings some variety to the otherwise pretty chaotic first half of the LP.”

Chamber To Release New Album “Cost Of Sacrifice” In October, Premiere Two New Songs

Chamber have announced that their new album “Cost Of Sacrifice” will be released on October 23. You can find an official video for “In Cleansing Fire” and a stream of “Scars In Complex Patterns“ from the effort below:

Gabe Manuel said the following about the new record:

“We were all going through our own personal struggles and we found solace in working on these songs and getting everything we were feeling out on the table. We are all influenced by a lot of different kinds of music and art, and while it was a challenge to represent all of those things on the record in a cohesive way, we grew as songwriters and musicians as a result of that challenge.”

He also added the following about “In Cleansing Fire”:

“This song is an analysis of the ways that the hateful and racist ideals this country was founded on still impact us today. The lyrics are a rejection of the argument that we aren’t responsible for the crimes of our ancestors, and they highlight the hopeless feeling that a lot of people in this country have which gets in the way of real progress. Your voice matters, and if you don’t use it to stand against racial injustice, police brutality and corruption, you are complicit in allowing those things to persist.”

“Cost Of Sacrifice” Track Listing:

01. “Fracture”
02. “Scars In Complex Patterns”
03. “Paranoia Bleeds”
04. “Visions Of Hostility”

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.”

“Nothing Left To Love” Track Listing:

01. “Love Me”
02. “Wings Of Nightmares”
03. “Paradise And Plagues”
04. “The Hands That used To Hold Me”
