Deathcore outfit Signs Of The Swarm have shared a new song called ‘Hollow Prison’, which features guest vocals from Alex Erian (Despised Icon, Obey The Brave).
Vocalist David Simonich had this to say of the track.
“‘Hollow Prison’ is one of our collective favourites on the album. It brings together all the key elements of Signs of the Swarm, while expanding to complement Alex Erian’s vocal style and delivery. That’s not to say this is Despised Icon worship, though all deathcore kind of is in a way, rather we siphon that through what makes us who we are. It’s one of the moshiest songs we have.
Lyrically, it talks about being captive in our mortal shell, awaiting the inevitability of death as repetition slowly eats us away. Add the cycle of despair to ‘death and taxes’. It’s a challenge to everyone to break that cycle and transcend disillusionment.”

The band’s fourth full-length album, ‘Absolvere’, is out on September 24th 2021 via Unique Leader Records.
