OCTOBER 15, 2019 – Columbus, OH – Like Moths To Flames have dropped a brand new single today. “Smoke and Mirrors” showcases the metalcore giants’ ability to balance melodic clean vocals along with intricate guitar licks, non-stop drum patterns and heavy-hitting bass lines while sharing personal stories through their lyrics.
“Very excited to release our second single! I think this kind of picks up where ‘Nowhere Left To Sink’ left off” shares vocalist Chris Roetter on the new single. “Capturing the same vibe for me lyrically it’s about the inner struggles of dealing with mental hurdles and obstacles that feel unavoidable, while ultimately being at fault. The song is a great blend of old and new Moths, capturing a lot of the old sound while still showcasing some of the other elements we are trying to implement within the music.”
Fans can stream “Smoke And Mirrors” today at https://unfd.lnk.to/SmokeAndMirrors. This is the band’s second new track since signing to UNFD earlier this year.
Like Moths To Flames conjure the type of anthems that move crowds and evoke each listener’s deeply rooted passions, as evidenced by the millions of streams accumulated by songs like “Bury Your Pain,” “No King,” “The Worst in Me,” “Wither,” and “You Won’t Be Missed” (which alone accounts for 5 million views on YouTube). Tours with bands like All That Remains, The Devil Wears Prada, and Memphis May Fire cemented their status as a live act worthy of admiration.
