COUNTERPARTS Ready To Drop New Album

Share This:

Since forming in 2007, Counterparts have gone from underdogs to a globetrotting powerhouse in the world of aggressive music.

Engineered/produced by Will Putney (Knocked Loose, Every Time I Die, Vein.fm), the band’s new album A Eulogy For Those Still Here finds Murphy at a crossroads, preoccupied with the inevitability of change and endings.

“I think I deal with things by preparing myself for the end,” he explains. “With so much of this record I’m mourning the loss of someone that’s still alive or saying goodbye to something that hasn’t left yet.”

The result is a high stakes record written as a true statement of intent–a mix of crushing heaviness and stark atmospherics that draws on everything Counterparts have been honing for the past 15 years.

“All of these things I have are still a big part of my life but one day they won’t be, and I don’t want to be focusing on that instead of enjoying the time I have with them,” says Murphy. “Maybe I’m saying goodbye preemptively but I think it’s important to say goodbye while you can.”
