Melbourne-based, five-piece metal band Pridelands have released their highly anticipated debut studio album, Light Bends, out now via Resist Records in Australia and SharpTone Records for the rest of the world.
Earlier in the week, they released the fourth song, Antipathy.
“Antipathy is a song that we wrote to channel and cleanse some of the more negative emotions that we had during the time. It’s certainly the most quote/unquote “angry” song of the album, but it is not that simple. The name itself means that you severely dislike something, or have a strong aversion to it, so the lyrics and instruments try to address this as a double entendre. We feel this deep-seeded anger towards a subject, and also to ourselves for letting it drag us down. It’s a song about the vicious cycle of anger, and how we may try to break that, praying that we and the subject both make it out.” says drummer, Joe Lipsham.
