Connie Sgarbossa said the following about the new record and a near-fatal drug overdose she suffered two weeks after recording the effort:

“Writing music is cathartic to me. Getting things on paper is the only way I know how to deal with stuff. So to have that happen two weeks later almost backed up why I wrote the album – it was a self-fulfilling prophecy. It reinforced that I wrote the album that I needed to write.”

“The album is a reflection on the last couple of years of our lives; It serves as a tongue in cheek, but genuine look at what it means to struggle through adversity while trying to find some beauty in it all… It’s about making art about parts of our lives that are ugly and how that seems to resonate the most with people.”

“…what it means to be in love with someone as well as the substances that are killing you both, what it means to use sex as a way to try to feel content and loved but without a true connection that instead makes you feel more isolated. The poetic nature of writing songs about addiction only to almost die of an overdose a few weeks later. It’s a pretty coat of paint on a crumbling structure.”

A video for the album’s first single, “Misinterpreting Constellations,” can be found below. Sgarbossa added the following about that track:

“…it’s a look back at actions you viewed as a romantic situation, and still do to an extent, but being able to realize that ‘love at all cost’ maybe wasn’t the healthiest thing for yourself, them or others.”

SeeYouSpaceCowboy Premiere New Song “Painting A Clear Picture From An Unreliable Narrator”

SeeYouSpaceCowboy have premiered a new song titled “Painting A Clear Picture From An Unreliable Narrator.” This track is from the band’s new split release with If I Die First. That effort is titled “A Sure Disaster“ and it will be available on May 14. Connie Sgarbossa commented:

“We are really excited to share this track because I think it serves as a good sample for how we have been approaching music for SYSC for the future. Over quarantine we spent a lot of time writing and discussing what we wanted to do moving forward and we came to the conclusion we wanted to create something that was distinctly us again. So we explored combining the old elements that we identified most with us back in the day, the sass and hectic weird nature and played around with pairing that with more melody and emotion and I think this track is indicative of that evolution of us as a band as well as reclaiming our identity.”
