Collaborative Project LGND Shares New Song “Spite Me” — Listen


LGND is the unorthodox yet sonically thrilling project of vocalist Chad Ruhlig (For The Fallen Dreams) and a collection of different musicians and producers. Each collaborator creates the music, over which Ruhlig provides lyrics and vocals. The music is being released by Rise Records.

Today, LGND has dropped the new song “Spite Me,” featuring Andrew Tkaczyk of The Ghost Inside. The song is ominous, haunting, and thoroughly tumultuous, and it’s built on grooves thunderous enough to shift tectonic plates.

Listen here.

“Writing ‘Spite Me’ with one of my closest friends of nearly 20 years was one of those surreal full circle moments for Andrew and I,” says Ruhlig. “We got our start in music together and we were able to join forces again for a crushingly heavy track that expresses lots of emotion lyrically and sonically. I am extremely proud of how it turned out and our journey that led us back to writing together again.”

LGND — one of heavy music’s best kept secrets for well over a decade — stands the test of time in a space filled with constant change. Forming in 2009, the project has successfully survived without actively touring throughout much of their existence. Blending a unique style of aggressive metal, thrash, and early flavors of nu metal, LGND push the envelope continually.

The first new track “Psychedelic Nightmare” dropped last year and featured Daniel “DL” Laskiewicz, formerly of The Acacia Strain. Listen to the track and watch the visualizer here.

“Six different writers/producers and a lot of trust went into this release,” Ruhlig previously explained about the project’s scope. “I’m extremely proud of how everything came out and can’t wait for you all to hear what we did. Times are changing, so are we.”

LGND are working on additional tracks with members of Attila, The Browning, and more, as well as other producers. Stay tuned.
