OUT JULY 14 VIA UNFD
BAND SHARES VISUALIZER FOR NEW SINGLE “WOULDYOUWAITFORME?” — WATCH
Florida-via-Atlanta alt-metal band MOODRING are pleased to announce their forthcoming EP, titled YOUR LIGHT FADES AWAY. It arrives on July 14 via UNFD. Pre-order it here.
To herald the new EP, the band has shared the visualizer for the new single “WOULDYOUWAITFORME?” Watch and listen here. The song epitomizes the band’s patented push and pull energy — where chunky guitar riffs collide with dreamy soundscapes, layered vocals, and thick grooves. The track manages to straddle the line between anthemic and pit-ready with an effortless grace that is isn’t normally expected among such down-tuned nastiness.
“A song about the fragile fibers pulled taut between opposing feelings,” says singer Hunter Young. “It’s a love song about hating to love and loving to hate, devoted to a toxic desire which remains constant even though it suffocates and consumes. The song reflects these contrasts in its mashing of sultry, sensual melodies with high angst and screaming desperation.”
He furthers, “We really wanted to push ourselves to experiment with vocals on these new songs, and find a way to work our signature chorus hook in amongst new approaches to melody and aggression. And the fact that it was written whilst Hurricane Ian raged literally outside the studio windows very likely contributed to the stormy, dramatic tones and emotions within the track.”YOUR LIGHT FADES EP TRACK LISTING:
Moodring previously released the full length album Stargazer in June 2021. The album was soaked and splattered with shades of crimson, black, and blue. It explored themes of pain and loss, sex and addiction, love and death against a gloriously patchwork musical backdrop. Moodring mix swaths of moody, ’90s grunge and thunderous, ’00s hard rock into a unique and unforgettable sonic blend. Ultimately, Stargazer served as a sonic document about letting go and giving in — letting go of trauma and pain and giving into temptation, vices, and the void.
