"And so the cycle repeats The cycle repeats This city, this city never sleeps And the mask, it tears us all apart"

 

Since the release of Earthbound’s "Liquify" EP in March 2018, the five-piece Progressive Metalcore outfit have been under the radar busily working on their follow-up release. The boys have been dropping subtle hints about the release of new music with a teaser video posted on their Facebook page showing behind the scenes footage of the band rehearsing plus the words "THE CYCLE REPEATS" and the date 01-03-19. It appeared like it was recorded on a hand-held video camera from the 1990’s.

 

The boys were fortunate enough to have this new track premiered on Triple J’s program Short.Fast.Loud with Joshua Merriel before the official release. The band have clearly developed and improved their songwriting structure over the past year if this track is any indication. Full of fiery energy, harsh breakdowns, crunchy guitar riffs and huge uplifting cleans in the chorus. It’s easily their most progressive and polished track released to date, packing a lot into the two and a half minute running time. I’m really looking forward to seeing where the band ends up in the near future.
