THECITYISOURS reveal the new track ‘DEATH OF ME’ which sees the band wearing their hearts on their sleeves to let people know that it's ok not to be ok. The track is taken from the band's sophomore album ‘COMA’ set for release 22nd October 2021, through respected German alternative/metal label, Arising Empire. Fans can pre-save the album HERE.
Speaking on their new single, guitarist/vocalist Mikey Page remarks "Death Of Me is an unapologetically honest account of going through a breakdown, as I battled mentally with the realisation that my life was changing and there was nothing that I could do to stop it. It’s one of the most personal tracks I have written as a lyricist but really felt like a story I had to tell to clear my head and give myself a chance to find a road to recovery." Reflecting on the writing process Page adds "I’ll always look back on this song as the breakout moment for this album. It really feels like this paved the way for what would become ‘COMA’."
There is a palpable sense of loss that ties together the band’s sophomore offering. TCIO tackles the passing of loved ones, relationships, even personal sovereignty and self-control head-on. However, juxtaposed against their vibrant and fresh feeling, pop-centric arrangements, expertly interwoven with infectious hooks and crushing riffs; ‘COMA’ breathes a perfect balance, radiating an underlying sense of positivity and resilience through an otherwise dark concept.
‘COMA’ was recorded, engineered and mixed by long-time collaborator Oz Craggs (Feed The Rhino, NECK DEEP, Mallory Knox) at Hidden Track Studios and mastered by Ermin Hamidovic (Architects, Periphery, Northlane) at Systematic Productions.
