Dead Poet Society have released their double single Running In Circles / HURT, out now via Spinefarm.

“Running in Circles explores the paranoid voices inside our heads,” the band explains. “It’s about the struggle of being real with yourself – avoiding the ‘fake.’ Sometimes, it feels impossible to avoid, It was written about not being true to yourself and the shame that follows.

“There’s not a lot in life that’s more gut-wrenchingly frustrating than trying desperately for years to build a career and having little to show for it,” the band add when discussing HURT. “From living on floors and friends’ couches or out of your car, to working job after job just barely making ends meet, to going on tour and coming back with less money than you had before. We wrote this song as a symbol of that nagging doubt and insecurity. The doubt that consumes you and that can be triggered by people or events in your life, but more often than not, again it’s the voice inside your head.”
