Happy Monday, everyone. If you happened to spend the weekend busting your ass working for your future – maybe you were up all night writing your graphic novel or at band practice testing out new music – while also noticing the dysfunctional societal influences that surrounded you, boy do we have the perfect song for you.
Taken from their forthcoming EP Consume The Earth, today The Noise is premiering the title track from melodic newcomers Fathom Farewell.
“’Consume the Earth’ is a projection of how I interpret our generation currently perceives the world,” says vocalist Alex Cohen about his band’s new single. “We all are consumed by society pulling us in so many different directions as we grow that so many of us wind up confused about what we are meant to do with our lives. This causes a lot of depression and even aggression. Our heart pulls us one way while the work we need to do to survive pulls us in the other in most cases, leaving us feeling as though our dreams may never see the light of day to free us from the constant pain of feeling as though our lives aren’t unfolding the way we had hoped for. We hope to inspire others to allow their dreams to see the light of day in spite of whatever may need to be done to survive.”
When asked about the band’s thrilling new video directed by Matty Labonte, Cohen said: “For the video, we really wanted to channel our energy through the music to portray our fire to continue pursuing our passions in hopes of one day making them our means of surviving.”
Lastly, Cohen continued to touch on the track’s thought-provoking topic saying, “I also feel our environment and the people around us are consumed by the fear of the unknown binding itself to those who are at the highest authority given that we really never can be truly sure of their intentions. Many emotions came into play when writing this song for all of us and it all can be summarized by the concept that life can either be a paradise or a prison depending on your outlook and how you decide to live your life.”
