Counterparts share new single and video ‘Whispers Of Your Death’

Ontario-based post-hardcore heavyweights, Counterparts, recently returned with the announcement of their upcoming full-length, ‘A Eulogy For Those Still Here,’ due out October 7th from Pure Noise Records. The record finds Counterparts tapping into a deep sense of dread that pushes their visceral sound to even greater extremes. It’s an album that revolves around uncertainty but results in the group’s most definitive statement to date.

Today Counterparts have shared the album’s second single, ‘Whispers Of Your Death’ a towering blast of intricate riffs and crushing drums that wastes no time in introducing many of the harrowing themes of ‘A Eulogy For Those Still Here.’ The track follows the lead single ‘Unwavering Vow,’ and continues to tease an even darker and more aggressive Counterparts than ever before. 

Vocalist Brendan Murphy discussed the new song saying: “I feel like anyone who has been following the band/me pre-pandemic knew this was coming, but this song is about my cat Kuma. My ex and I rescued him just under 2 years ago and he is hands down the sole reason I stuck around long enough to even make this record. Shortly after he was rescued, we developed a special bond and now I can’t imagine my life without him. Unfortunately in the first few months we had him, he became very sick and almost died due to complications of a blood parasite while being FIV positive. Nobody believed he would make it… but luckily he is still here with us and currently doing great. Being his dad is hands down the most important thing I’ve ever done in my life and also what I am most proud of. I love him more than anything in the world and this song is my tribute to him for quite literally giving me a reason to live. 07/26/2020.”
