Long Island’s Stand Still drop punchy, emotional single ‘Mysticism’

Known for playing packed out shows that are built off high-energy and massive sing-a-longs, Long Island melodic hardcore band Stand Still spent much of 2023 working with Greg Thomas at Silver Bullet Studios perfecting new material.

After sharing ‘Steps Ascending’ two weeks ago, the band now deliver the single ‘Mysticism.’ Both songs are part of two two-song promo out digitally on DAZE, as a precursor to the band’s debut album set for release this Spring. On ‘Mysticism,’ the band exemplifies their ability to produce extremely catchy songs that pack emotion. The riffs are bouncy, hooks prevalent, and there’s enough heavy momentum to make you want to move.

On the song’s lyrics, vocalist Gerry Windus comments: “Mysticism is often defined as “becoming one with God.” In this instance, ‘God’ is the ideal version of one’s self. This divine version of the self seems impossible to reach, and this track details the journey one goes through in an attempt to unite with it.”
