Ready to be transported back to bulletin boards, Top 8, studded belts, and skinny jeans so tight they might cut off circulation? Well, today, two of the scene’s most exciting bands have come together to release the ultimate throwback track that would have most certainly been your Myspace profile song circa 2004.
Taken from their upcoming five-track split entitled A Sure Disaster, which is set to hit stores May 14th via Pure Noise Records, SeeYouSpaceCowboy and If I Die First have just shared their new hard-hitting collaborative track “bloodstainedeyes.”
“We are happy to finally let this project surface, two bands, one group of friends,” shares SeeYouSpaceCowboy vocalist Connie Sgarbossa. “It was a lot of fun working with IIDF on this and putting this together, we both take influence from the same era of metalcore/post-hardcore but with us each having our own personal spin on it. So I hope it serves as an engaging listen.”
Sgarbossa added, “When we first came up with the idea of doing this split I really wanted to do a collaborative song. It was something I couldn’t really cite many bands doing, if any, that came to my mind in this sub-genre. I wanted to take it farther than just featuring on each other’s tracks - a song that combined and took crucial elements of each band and made it something that represented both of us and was cohesive. So we are all got together and fucked my apartment up but wrote this song and recorded it and shot a music video and somehow made it work.”
