MUSIC NEWS: After The Burial Release New Single ‘Exit, Exist’
After The Burial have released their new single Exit, Exist, taken from their forthcoming album Evergreen. The track is the second taste of the new record, following the band’s previous single Behold The Crown.
“When I write songs they can sometimes not have an ideal, no concept or thoughts to begin them,” explains vocalist Anthony Notarmaso. “It’s a blank space or more like a blacked out empty space. What works for me is I just relax and let my mind take over. I let whatever pictures or little movies form inside my head and play out. ‘Exit, Exist’ started with a shape of a person looking at its arms and hands and then looking in towards the area of its chest. The chest had a small glow inside it and this person would reach inside its body and try to pull this little light out to examine it.
“To me, it was a metaphor for a soul searching human, a human that questions life, it’s own morals, meaning and existence. A person that wants to learn and be the best version of itself, but also a person that is flawed and vulnerable to becoming unfulfilled and lost in existence. That’s how the chorus became and the concept of the song. Those lines and those pictures were the foundation on which the rest was built. Enjoy!”
Evergreen is due for release on 19th April via Sumerian Records.
