#NewMusicWednesday seems to be the new thing these days. On the back of their pinnacle LP No Eternity in Gold last year Like Moths To Flames have been focusing on touring, and the ever-constant lack of stability of shows going ahead like the rest of the world at the moment. In the meantime, the band have not turned their heads away from new music, having released ‘Basilisk‘ and ‘Inherit the Tragedy‘ earlier this year.
Just six months later, the metalcore band have graced us with even more new music, announcing a five-track EP, titled Pure Like Porcelain, including their brand new single ‘Preservation of Hate’. The EP will come out on November 5th via UNFD. The band have alluded to getting experimental on the upcoming release. Here’s what vocalist Chris Roetter had to say about it:
“I remember hearing some of the stuff they were writing and thinking, “Wow, I don’t know if this is too left field to what we do as a band,” he admits. “I feel like sometimes I might be the safe keeper because I’ve been in the band since I was a kid, so it’s harder for me to stray from what we’re known for. But I know Zach and Jeremy have a lot to show, and a lot to offer as musicians. So I just said, “You know what, you guys do whatever you want. If it’s weird, it’s weird!”
“I stand at the gates of hell,” Roetter belches as the double-kick drums invade on ‘Preservation of Hate’. The track holds nothing back and continues at the 110% pace that the band have been going with lately on recent singles and their latest LP. The punchy three-minute track has it all though – distorted guitars, chaotic vocals and blistering drums. It’s great to hear the level of energy Like Moths To Flames are bringing to the table, ‘Preservation of Hate’ is a total banger, and it sounds like Pure Like Porcelain could be a big release.
