Metalcore band The Ghost Inside have released another cut from their forthcoming self-titled LP.
“Pressure Point” follows the band’s previously released single, “Aftermath.” The new song tells the tale of acquaintances who selfishly shift the focus from other people’s grief and misfortunes towards themselves. “Misery doesn’t love company / And I refuse to be defined by suffering,” vocalist Jonathan Vigil roars at the top of the track.
The Californian outfit’s new album, The Ghost Inside, will be their first since 2014’s Dear Youth. The record was partially written in 2015 before a horrific bus crash resulted in the death of their driver and left the members with major injuries.
“Almost all TGI songs take the listener on a journey from dark to light or from despair to hope,” bassist Jim Riley said in a statement. “On this record we made a conscious effort to let individual songs explore different emotions we’ve been experiencing and not force them to have a positive turn.”
He added, “We feel like the album as a whole will give you that hopeful feeling, even though a song like ‘Pressure Point’; might not do that by itself. Instead, we embraced being pissed off and let it pour out through some of the most aggressive and pointed lyrics we’ve ever had.”
The Ghost Inside is slated to drop on June 5 via Epitaph Records. Listen to “Pressure Point” below:
