Reality can be harsh. Existence can feel futile sometimes, best efforts be damned. Newcastle’s Vilify want everyone to know that those feelings are valid and unfortunately all too common, given the past few years’ events, but life is worth living. Railing against those feelings of futility are worth every effort and every day here on this Earth. That is the message of this new single and video called Fultility from the quartet.
The single will be released this Friday, June 3, 2022 – and can be accessed at http://ffm.to/futility.
Amy McIntosh, vocalist for the band says of the new song, “I know we are all sick of hearing about it, but this song was written in and about the height of the COVID lockdowns. It’s about feeling abandoned. It’s about feeling lost. This song came together in a time when music was at a stand-still. We had all lost the most important thing to us, Music. Our community was pretty much abandoned and left to rot. That feeling of rot and despair made its way into my mind, just as it did to so many other artists I know. We felt worthless. Sports were being played to thousands of people yet many of us who worked and lived for this industry were struggling to put food on the table. We lost venues, we lost friends, we lost faith. I did not want to live anymore. Futility had taken over.“
