Continuing when they left off with their punishing standalone single “Empty Vessel” featuring new members bassist Chris Klumpp and drummer Joey DiBiase, Florida noisemakers LIMBS have just returned with another brutal slobberknocker.
Titled “I Used To Be You,” the brand new contemplative track follows frontman Austin McAuley as he processes previous problems in his past life.
“‘I Used To Be You’ was written as a reflection of my past, riddled with toxic relationships, substance abuse and struggling to cope with the loss of my father,” says McAuley. “The song is an introspective look into the person I became when life was at its darkest, but narrates how I was able to overcome adversity and better myself, for my own sake and those around me.”
He continues: “The driving force behind this story of rebirth is the memory of my father, his voice in my head telling me not to give up, to never stop fighting. ‘For all that I’ve seen, as long as you stayed…I can’t be afraid to live up to your name.’ Because of him, forever living through me, I embraced defeat and uncertainty, recognizing who I once was and striving to better myself by all means necessary.”
