Meadows Premiere Two Singles From Their Upcoming Album “Familiar With Pain”


Christian melodic hardcore band Meadows are eyeing a March 29th release through Facedown Records for their sophomore album, “Familiar With Pain“. The group recorded that outing with Josh Ford and Audiostate 55 Recording Studios in Birmingham, AL.

A pair of singles in “Barabbas (Silence of Innocence)” and “Old Friend, New Leaf” lead the charge from that record, both of which can be heard below. The band commented:

“‘Barrabas‘ cuts straight to the point both musically and lyrically. We wanted to encapsulate a crowd truly wrapped in envy through the heavy hitting nature of it. In a lot of ways it’s a cautionary song that allows us to look inward through the eyes of the crowd being so hellbent with envy and unforgiveness that we would rather choose wrath and carnage, and the pain that it brings, instead of thinking it through to accept grace offered.”

“‘Old Friend, New Leaf‘ reminds us that long-lasting friendships and community are what help us strive for more and become more than we could have ever done on our own. This song is a reminder that it is important to strive for those connections and to look for ways to put others before yourself. Touching on themes within the Last Supper for Jesus with His disciples, this is a punchy song that is best sung alongside friends both new and old.”
