Sydney metalcore favourites Northlane have just unveiled another new cut from ‘Alien’, the band’s highly-anticipated forthcoming and most personal record to date.
The new song is called ‘Talking Heads’, and vocalist Marcus Bridge explains that it deals with his difficult childhood and confronting demons from that time in his life.
“‘Talking Heads’ talks about the insecurities and anxiety that come with growing up in a violent home with drug addicted parents. That trauma had made it difficult to express my thoughts and ideas in the past, both emotionally and creatively.
We started working on this song pretty early in the process, and I think writing it actually started to erase a lot of that insecurity, helping me open up a lot more for the rest of ‘Alien’. I think it’s important to know that there are a lot of people who feel the same way. I hope with this song and the issues talked about on rest of the album, that people will start to feel comfortable opening up about their past, turning it from a weakness to a strength in the process.”

The band’s fifth full-length album, ‘Alien’, is scheduled for release on August 2nd 2019 through UNFD.
