Metalcore band Counterparts have officially announced their 6th full-length album, Nothing Left To Love. Life’s revolving door is front and centre on the record, due out November 1 on Pure Noise Records. Bookended by the powerful lyric “Will you love me when there’s nothing left to love?” — a desperate plea on commitment in the face of both mortality and morality — the album muses on many of the topics vocalist Brendan Murphy has in the past life’s darkness, self-destructive tendencies and the self-flagellation they beget.
The first look at the forthcoming record comes in the form of the music video for “Wings of Nightmares”, which, according to Murphy “is 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.”
Produced by Will Putney (Every Time I Die, The Acacia Strain), Nothing Left To Love shows the band moving their uniquely captivating sound forward without losing the musical DNA that broke them back in the early 2010s. It’s a musical tour through the band’s history, as more melodic elements sharply swerve into caustic breakdowns reminiscent of their debut album, 2010’s Prophets.
