“”Poison Ivy” was written about my struggle to simply keep going,” notes singer Jeremy McLeod. “I’d find myself stuck inside my head for months, fighting the negative thoughts that were telling me to give up.

EXISTENTIA Release New Lyric Video
American death metal trio EXISTENTIA have released a lyric video for “Planned Obsolescence”. The song is taken from their recently released EP Calculating Failure which was released via Stumpgrinder Records.
The band comments:
“Planned Obsolescence: Society shapes us to run a short course with our lives. It sucks your resources making you a slave to bullshit and then kills you off. For some this could be signing up for the military and not realizing you’re just a “cog in this killing machine.” Once you serve your time you’re tossed to the streets to fend for yourself. Becoming outdated, obsolete, and no longer needed”
“I enlisted the help of my buddy Chris Gelbuda to help turn a bunch of ideas that I had had into my first lyrical venture for Greensky,” says Anders Beck. “This song is essentially about what it was like to have my life, career, and world slammed to a halt by the Covid-19 pandemic. It was really emotionally shocking to have everything we’ve worked for and built ripped out of our hands almost overnight. With all of that in mind, we decided that the musical vibe of the song should take on the air of the first song that we would want to play when we get back on stage in front of thousands of people dancing and partying in a field at a festival… I think we got pretty close!”

Today, Fox released his fourth full-length album, Wasted Love, a collection of tunes that decidedly marks his shift from writing folk songs to his own, “chaotic hillbilly” brand of country music—or in Fox’s words, “from plunk to spunk.” Nimbly shifting affective gears from simmering anger and contemplative reflection to wry wit and unexpected sass, Fox’s songs are simultaneously playful and insightful. Fox’s lyrics evoke the post-storm sizzle of an Appalachian landscape and the Biblical imagery that saturated his childhood.
