On the new track, vocalist Austin McAuley shares: “’Stare’ was written and based on honest self-reflection. It resonates with fear, and the burdens related to loving and losing. It talks of being haunted by prior actions and carrying a perpetual sense of personal destruction as a result. To love means to [eventually] lose…in any capacity.”
Last year LIMBS found a home with UNFD, ahead of the release of their debut album Father’s Son, which gives listeners a dark and brooding look at a young man’s journey out of religion as he comes to terms with both his upbringing and his own actions.. A conceptual album following a young man breaking free from his indoctrinated upbringing, the album explores the harm it causes and the strength in reclaiming your own life.
LIMBS’ latest live video for their album’s title track, “Father’s Son,” was filmed during the band’s 2018 tour with Underoath, Dance Gavin Dance, and Veil Of Maya. Streaming here, the video captures the electricity and raw power of a LIMBS live show – from headbanging to epic stage dives and beyond.

Earlier this year LIMBS announced that longtime friend Austin McAuley would bestepping into the role of lead vocalist. McCauley debuted with LIMBS at the end of 2018 while on tour with Currents, giving fans a taste of his energy and passion before bringing it into the studio for new music.
“I’m extremely grateful for the opportunity and am very excited for everything in the future. Joining LIMBS really has pushed me musically, and creating these new jams has me so hyped,” McAuley shares. “Stepping into this new role has definitely been challenging in some aspects, but it’s given me the privilege to join my closest friends on stage every night, as well as further develop the standards in our writing. I believe this new music heavily reflects our movement forward, and quite frankly I’m ready to release more.”
