Greet Death continue their bountiful output of singles with today’s release of Panic Song.”  The track follows  “I Hate Everything” “Your Love is Alcohol” and “Punishment Existence”— their new songs that have rolled out over the last six months— and like its predecessors, “Panic Song” ascends to the stratosphere.  Greet Death guitarist/vocalist Sam Boyhtari comments on the single: “At the end of 2020 I was living with my partner Larissa in an apartment on the North side of Chicago. I was staying up until 5 or 6 in the morning every night and experiencing some terrible panic attacks. One night Larissa woke up and sat with me on the couch, talking me through an especially awful attack. The living room was dark, there was a CTA station across the street that gave us a little bit of light at night. It was our first time living together, and a time I now look back on very fondly. Larissa would go to work and I would work from home all day in her former roommate’s empty bedroom. At night, we would hang out until she went to bed, then I would put a horror movie on the TV and listen to music through headphones at the same time like a fucking weirdo. Despite the turmoil I was going through, I felt very comfortable in that place. So one day while Larissa was at work and I was alone in the apartment, I wrote a song about it.”

Hailing from Flint, MI, Greet Death’s catalog is an exercise in refraction and reflection. Within a shoegazey haze, their brutally honest subject matter is cleverly cloaked amid soft vocal deliveries and dreamy guitar work. Their songs are lovingly constructed before buckling beneath their own emotional weight.

Greet Death will embark on a U.S. tour tomorrow — keep up with them on Instagram and catch them on the road with Infant Island through April 30th.
