Pre-order Counterparts' new album, 'A Eulogy For Those Still Here,' on exclusive blood red vinyl, limited to 400 copies.

Canadian melodic/metallic hardcore band Counterparts have announced that they'll follow 2019's Nothing Left to Love with their seventh album, A Eulogy For Those Still Here, on October 7 via Pure Noise. It was produced by frequent collaborator Will Putney (who also plays in END with Counterparts vocalist Brendan Murphy, and has worked with Knocked Loose, Every Time I Die, Vein, and countless others), and it's Counterparts' first album with guitarists Alex Re and Jesse Doreen fully back in the fold since they took partial hiatuses from the band in recent years. The first taste is "Unwavering Vow," which finds the long-running band in fine form, sounding equal parts heavy, anthemic, and atmospheric. Listen and watch the video below.

"I think I deal with things by preparing myself for the end," Brendan says of the album overall. "When I notice something is wrong or something's up, I can't just wait for it to happen. I start catastrophizing and then sometimes I end up willing these things into existence. 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."

He also adds, "I started to think about what it would be like to write a record as if it would be our last, to try and make something that I knew I would be satisfied with if it was. I love this band, it's the most important thing I've ever done and I'm very fortunate to have it, but we put a lot into it and it's not the most sustainable way to live."

We've teamed up with Counterparts and Pure Noise for a blood red vinyl pressing of A Eulogy For Those Still Here, limited to 400 copies and exclusive to our stores. Pre-order yours HERE while they last. A mock-up of the variant is pictured below.
