Canadian metalcore band Counterparts have officially announced that they will release their sixth studio album, Nothing Left To Love, on November 1, 2019 through New Damage Records/Pure Noise Records. Bookended by the powerful lyric “Will you love me when there’s nothing left to love?” — a desperate plea on commitment in the face of both mortality and morality — the album muses on many of the topics vocalist Brendan Murphy has in the past: life’s darkness, self-destructive tendencies and the self-flagellation they beget.
“I know I’ve said this for every record we’ve ever released but… Nothing Left to Love is best Counterparts record. I wouldn’t hold your breath for anything ground breaking, but as we grow and progress we just get better at writing Counterparts songs, and that’s all we’ve wanted to do. If you fuck with the band you’ll probably love it, and if you don’t then maybe we’ve finally honed our craft enough for you to give a shit.” shares Murphy on the forthcoming record.
The first look at the forthcoming record came earlier today when the band dropped the music video for “Wings of Nightmares”, which, according to Murphy “is a no brainer first single because it’s a perfect blend of old and new Counterparts. Sounds like if we tried to rewrite a song off Prophets in our late 20’s. It’s one of the most “Counterparts” songs on the record if that makes sense. I think it’s got something for everyone.”
Produced by Will Putney (Every Time I Die, The Acacia Strain), Nothing Left To Love shows the band moving their uniquely captivating sound forward without losing the musical DNA that broke them back in the early 2010s. It’s a musical tour through the band’s history, as more melodic elements sharply swerve into caustic breakdowns reminiscent of their debut album, 2010’s Prophets.

Shaken awake to find our absence hasn’t manifested yet. Longing for a sense of loss.
