After The Burial Premiere New Song “Collapse”


After The Burial have premiered a new song titled “Collapse” from their approaching new album, “Dig Deep“, which arrives on February 19th through Sumerian Records. The album marks the group’s first since the passing of their guitarist Justin Lowe last year. Speaking with New Music Magazine, who also premiered the aforementioned song, vocalist Anthony Notarmaso said of the loss of Lowe and moving on without him:

“We coped as well as we could have—we still are. Losing someone isn’t easy, and we all dealt with it in our own way. I was angry and sad at the same time. I didn’t know how to feel, and it took time to accept that he really was gone. After the dust settled, we got on the phone to see where we stood. To be honest, we thought about giving up. We asked ourselves if it was right to go on without him, or maybe if it was time to start a new band together. In the end, we felt like we couldn’t let what beat him beat us. That would’ve been even more tragic, and we felt like he wouldn’t have wanted us to stop. I know I wouldn’t have.”

Lowe isn’t only present in spirit however, as some of his input made the album:

“We went through hell to finish this record, and the music translates that. Trent worked his ass off, and it shows. It’s crazy because I think it brought us closer as band. Justin wrote some riffs that made the record, but after a couple of days in the studio he left. He obviously wasn’t okay, and we wanted him to get well. I arrived a few days after the guys had gotten there. I never got to see him.”

There’s more from Notarmaso and the band over at New Music Magazine. The group will be out this month with Born Of Osiris, Veil Of Maya and more on the Sumerian Records 10th anniversary tour.
