Canadian metallic hardcore upstarts Vultures have just unleashed a new song called ‘Push’, the latest cut to come from their forthcoming second EP, ‘Hunger’.
This is what the band had to say about the song in a collective statement.
“Throughout ‘Hunger’, we poignantly reflect on the struggles of those impacted by substance abuse from a variety of different perspectives. ‘Push’ specifically is framed around dealers who prey on impoverished and impressionable peoples in order to make a living. In contrast to the undoubtedly negative connotations associated with such a living, we also examine the tribulations of said dealers who feel like they can’t make a living any other way or are forced into this particular line of work.
In order to evoke a visual sense of this lyrical contrast, the ‘Push’ video makes ample use of vividly cut colored and colorless scenes. A bleak white, black, and grey is juxtaposed against frenetic red and pink in order to add depth and context to the depictions of struggle that we highlight in the song.
We chose ‘Push’ as the debut song and video because we believe it acts as the perfect initial representation of, and introduction to, Hunger as an album. ‘Push’ displays some new dynamic compositional themes that are emblematic of the album as a whole and serves as a proud standard for the songs that will be shown later on when Hunger is released.”
The track was premiered with its accompanying video through Decibel Magazine, and you can check it out below.
The band’s second EP, ‘Hunger’, is set to be released on October 4th 2019.
