Portland’s own DYING WISH will release their new album Symptoms of Survival on November 3 via SharpTone Records. The band has dropped the video for Path to Your Grave.
“‘Path to Your Grave’ was written in mind as ‘Fragments Part Two,'” says Emma Boster. “‘Fragments’ is written about my struggle of my relationship with my stepfather, who was manipulative, controlling, and abusive towards me. That mistreatment has resulted in a lot of unhealthy habits and patterns in my life that I have struggled to move on from. ‘Fragments One’ was me talking about my experience publicly for the first time. After expressing my grief, the song concludes with ‘I would bury you if I could.’ This song also concludes with the same seven words but has a different outlook. Since releasing ‘Fragments,’ I have grown to a new level of acceptance with my trauma and this song is about that acceptance. The anger and the hurt is still there, but now, it just stings a little less. It has a much more triumphant expression.”
