The Primals (Darkest Hour, Etc.) Premiere New Song “Pity City”


The Primals have premiered another new track, the latest being “Pity City” from their upcoming debut album, “All Love Is True Love“. The band are comprised of current/former members of Darkest Hour, Dead To Fall and The Explosion. Their frontman John Henry (also of Darkest Hour) said of this latest cut:

“This song originally came from a different project I was working on which was more electronic, using an old Univox drum machine and a bunch of layered synths and guitars. It stood out to me as more of a structured song than the rest from that session, so I decided to see if it would work with The Primals. Once Andrew added his version of the drumbeat and I heard it with Chad playing the driving bassline I knew it would work.

This one is definitely more on the poppy/pretty end of the spectrum of the album, and the only track that features a synth part. Lyrically, this track is a good representation of the album title, ‘All Love Is True Love‘, as it’s sort of a love song to everyone I’ve ever loved, even the ones who are out of my life. I think the last lines sum up the song fairly well: ‘Me and the ones I adore, I don’t believe there’s an end anymore, and we are nothing’.”

All Love Is True Love” will be released on September 07th through Southern Lord. The group currently have the following shows booked in support of it:

09/07 Los Angeles, CA – Hi-Hat
09/14 Washinton, DC – The Pinch
09/15 Brooklyn, NY – El Cortez Safari Room
11/17 Los Angeles, CA – The Echo
