As Friends Rust share new single and video ‘Final Form’

Melodic hardcore punk band As Friends Rust has shared their existential new single and video ‘Final Form.’ The song stems from their upcoming album ‘Any Joy,’ set for release on August 18th on End Hits Records. On ‘Final Form,’ emotional hollered hooks rise over layered, intricate guitars creating immense melodies. The video for the song finds vocalist Damien Moyal playing a man struggling with his own morality while fighting against time, and Moyal’s son plays the younger version of the character in the Nathaniel Shannon filmed clip.

Speaking on the lyrics, vocalist Moyal states:‘Final Form’ is about how one day you wake up and, with no real warning, you’re just not young anymore. The ascent to the top of that proverbial hill is slow and steady. You’re barely aware that there’s a peak at all, and practically oblivious to the impending drop, which is in fact a plummet. I spent so many years living recklessly, and now that I’m finally getting the hang of this thing, the end feels like it’s just around the corner. I want to live, but I can practically smell the casket. It’s kind of lamenting the chance and absurdity of it all. The impermanence. The un-winnable race against time.”
