March 1, 2019 | ORLANDO, FL – Blessing A Curse
is an American metal band from Orlando, Florida, best known for their unusual amalgamation of metalcore, rap-metal and pop-rock. The band spent the better part of 2018 recording their sophomore release, WASTE, produced by Stephan Hawkes (Attila, Jonny Craig, Chelsea Grin) at Interlace Audio in Portland, Oregon and will be released on March 29th, 2019 via Smartpunk Records. Vocalist, Joshy Singer explains, “We really feel like this is the album that will resonate with people. Because it’s real. It’s raw. It’s heavy and It’s us. We can’t wait for everyone to hear what we have to say, and we have a lot to say.” The 10-track album is available for pre-order now
Today the band is thrilled to share their second single off the record called, “Rat Race.”
The single tackles the lose sense of purpose we experience in the mundanity of our day-to-day lives. Vocalist, Joshy expands, “I think we’ve all felt like a lab rat, lost in an endless maze where literally nothing goes your way, like some part of an infinitely minuscule cosmic experiment for the power-that-be to laugh at.” The single comes after the band’s release of the album title track, “Waste,”
a song about letting yourself become engulfed in worries, stress, anxiety and tension and taking it out on others. Singer elaborates, “It is during those moments of weakness, a unique sense of clarity appears, to show you that through determination in the face of complete hopelessness and uncertainty one can surpass it all.” This is the ideology behind Waste.
