Exclusive Track + Video Premiere: “Ends” by Constants (Ex-Junius, Ex-Rosetta)
Younger MetalSucks may not remember Constants. While the band, which features vocalist/guitarist Will Benoit (Junius, SOM), was a cornerstone of the Boston post-metal scene in the mid-’00s through to the early 2010s, they haven’t released a new track in nearly a decade. Which was a real bummer for all of us who were such massive fans of Constants’ unique mix of colossal, corpulent guitars and sensitive, sorrowful vocals.
Luckily, that all changes this week! This Friday, May 1, Constants will release Devotion, a collection of ten rare cuts, b-sides, remixes, and alternate versions, plus two new tracks… one of which, “Ends,” MetalSucks is absolutely thrilled to be debuting today. It’s the first new Constants song in eight years, and it does not disappoint. Heavy-yet-delicate, hypnotic, hooky, and moving, “Ends” is shoegaze at its finest. Benoit may repeat the phrase “Feels like I’m fading away” during the chorus, but “Ends” won’t fade from your memory anytime soon. Whether you’re an OG Constants fan or you’re just hearing about the group now, you owe it to yourself to check out this song.
