Modern-day melodic metalcore staples Counterparts are releasing their new album Nothing Left To Love on November 1 via Pure Noise. It was produced by Fit For An Autopsy/END member Will Putney (Knocked Loose, Vein, Harms Way, Every Time I Die, etc), and the first single is "Wings of Nightmares," which vocalist Brendan Murphy says "is a no brainer first single because it's a perfect blend of old and new Counterparts. Sounds like if we tried to rewrite a song off Prophets in our late 20's. It's one of the most 'Counterparts' songs on the record if that makes sense. I think it's got something for everyone." It's a real pulverizing song at its core, but those bright, melodic leads are pure ear candy. Listen below.

Brendan also adds about the new album:

I know I've said this for every record we've ever released but... Nothing Left to Love is best Counterparts record. I wouldn't hold your breath for anything ground breaking, but as we grow and progress we just get better at writing Counterparts songs, and that's all we've wanted to do. If you fuck with the band you'll probably love it, and if you don't then maybe we've finally honed our craft enough for you to give a shit.

Brendan also guests on the new Stray From the Path single "Kickback," which will appear on that band's new album Internal Atomics (due November 1 via UNFD), and Counterparts and Stray From The Path are also touring together. Varials and Chamber are also coming along for the run, and there's varying additional support from Dying Wish, Greyhaven, and END.

The tour hits NYC's Gramercy Theatre on 11/22 with END. All dates are listed below.
