If you can’t relate to Fading into Obscurity, the latest single to come from the post-hardcore powerhouse, Life in Discord, I don’t know whether I envy you or pity you.
The San Diego-based outfit brought some much-needed gravitas to the emo genre with their bleeding-heart lyricism, cataclysmically sharp riffs that are reminiscent of the likes of Rise Against, A Day to Remember and At the Drive In, and the marred with disillusion vocals that pull you right into the centre of this unfiltered confession of lost sanity.
If there was ever a time we needed a band in the same vein as Life in Discord, it is now. Naturally, we’re not the only ones hyped by their catchy burial of tranquillity.
Fading into Obscurity officially released on August 5th; check it out via YouTube.
