Australian metalcore band, Pridelands will release their long-awaited debut full-length album, Light Bends, this Friday, January 14th with SharpTone Records. As anticipation continues to spread worldwide, the band has dropped the record’s most vicious track, “Antipathy.
Commenting on the new single, vocalist Josh Cory says, “Antipathy is a song that we wrote to channel and cleanse some of the more negative emotions that we had during the time. It’s certainly the most quote/unquote “angry” song of the album, but it is not that simple. The name itself means that you severely dislike something, or have a strong aversion to it, so the lyrics and instruments try to address this as a double entendre. We feel this deep-seeded anger towards a subject, and also to ourselves for letting it drag us down. It’s a song about the vicious cycle of anger, and how we may try to break that, praying that we and the subject both make it out.”
