Perth metalcore outfit Cloak & Dagger recently announced their signing to Imminence Records and hinted at new music coming. Today sees the first taste as they have released their newest single, “Ruin” which lives on their forthcoming EP, Balance, due out later this year.
“Ruin was created from a desire I had to write something stripped back in comparison to my normal writing style. No frills or fancy ornaments, just straight up heavy and hard hitting riffs. The appeal is in the simplicity. To me this lets the instruments fall into their respective pockets, allowing the vocals to really shine through.” – Oliver Royer (Guitarist)
“Conceptually, Ruin is about the apocalypse. The whole world is being torn apart and ancient monstrosities are being unearthed. Lyrically, there is a pervasive sense of helplessness and resignation to the end. This song is necessary within the structure of the EP to represent the lowest point- the point of giving up- which makes the eventual decision to go on living at the EP’s end all the more powerful.” – Jordan Phoebe (Vocalist)
