Counterparts Streaming New Song “Bound To The Burn”


Canadian melodic metalcore band Counterparts have begun streaming their new single “Bound To The Burn“. It’s the latest song to see the light of day from the group’s seventh full-length opus, “A Eulogy For Those Still Here“. Pure Noise Records have an October 07th release date slated for that effort.

The group’s vocalist Brendan Murphy said of this song’s lyrical inspiration:

“‘Bound To The Burn‘ is about my personal frustrations that come with playing music for a living. I’m sure it goes without saying, but I do love being a part of Counterparts, though sometimes it can feel like Counterparts/I are easily replaceable in the world of heavy music.

This song is a metaphor for how I’ve let the pressure of churning out new music and constantly being on the road ‘kill’ me in a sense. But here I am, still ‘bound to the burn’ because when I DO consider the other options I have for a career, I end up drawing a blank and I can’t think of anything else I’d rather do. I want to be here, but I don’t… I’m learning to balance the two.”
