Counterparts: Whispers of Your Death

Metalcore greats, Counterparts, from Hamilton, Ontario, will release their seventh full length, A Eulogy For Those Still Here, on October 7th, 2022 via New Damage Records. Pushing their emotional sound to new heights, Counterparts channel a strong feeling of gloom on the new record which is built on notions of ambiguity and dread, yet, it ends up being the group's most unequivocal artistic expression to date.

Whispers of Your Death, the new single from the impending album, is a soaring storm of energy which immediately exposes many of the devastating themes found in A Eulogy For Those Still Here.

The band's own Brendan Murphy explains: "I feel like anyone who has been following the band/me pre-pandemic knew this was coming, but this song is about my cat Kuma. My ex and I rescued him just under two years ago and he is hands down the sole reason I stuck around long enough to even make this record. Shortly after he was rescued, we developed a special bond and now I can't imagine my life without him. Unfortunately in the first few months we had him, he became very sick and almost died due to complications of a blood parasite while being FIV positive. Nobody believed he would make it… but luckily he is still here with us and currently doing great. Being his dad is hands down the most important thing I've ever done in my life and also what I am most proud of. I love him more than anything in the world and this song is my tribute to him for quite literally giving me a reason to live."
