GOD FORBID DON’T WANT YOU TO “WALK ALONE,” BABY
The countdown to Earthsblood continues!
Back in December, I commented that Vince Neilstein must be some kind of psychic, because he pretty much predicted that “War of Attrition” would be the first song off the album that the band released for public consumption; the flipside of that assertion was my own prediction that song “Walk Alone” would be the first song released, since it’s one of the more easily palatable tracks off the disc. I don’t mean that as a put down – it’s an awesome song. But it’s melodic, has some great clean vox by Dallas Coyle, a strong hook and catchy chorus, and is not, by the standards of some of the other songs on the album, the heaviest number in the world. In other words: from a commercial standpoint, it’s kind of a perfect single.
Well, now the band has released “Walk Alone,” which you can stream on the below widget (along with the already released “The Rain” and some non-Earthsblood tracks). Like I said, it’s a pretty melodic song, but it’ll also rock your face off. Check it out, then let us know what you think in the comments section.
Earthsblood drops on Century on February 24. You can pre-order it right now.
