Deathcore troupe Signs Of The Swarm have just debuted a new single called ‘Pernicious’, which is expected to feature on their yet-to-be-announced fourth album.
The band spoke further on the song and its meaning.
“Lyrically the song touches on the subject of manipulation and control. Many of us experience this in some form or another. From our individual lives to the people around us. These situations can take control of us and affect us in very harmful ways, the idea of the puppet on strings is a metaphor for this.
‘Pernicious’, as a whole, we feel encompasses everything that Signs Of The Swarm is and has been as a band. Meshing older core elements of the band with our desire to push ourselves creatively and musically, we are excited to deliver to the fans what we feel is our best song to date.”

More details surrounding the band’s fourth studio album will be confirmed as it develops.
