Anticipation continues to build as West Virginian metalcore upstarts CURSES release their latest single, ‘Amethyst’ from their sophomore full-length, Chapter II: Bloom, that’s due out from SharpTone Records on August 7th. Watch the visualizer for the stunning, break neck melodic anthem here.
“Amethyst is about the loss of one’s maternal creator. It explores the immense beauty that can be found beneath the throes of grief and connects it to the sublime reality of the natural world. Even after death, our loved ones continue to live within us through the memories we’ve created, the everpresent love we will always feel, and the perspectives we’ve inherited.” – CURSES
The Princeton, West Virginia quintet—Brando Casto [vocals], Eli Fry [vocals], Davey Nicewander [guitar], Michael Olivares [bass, vocals] and Shane Cyrus [drums] arrived on the scene in 2017 with the vicious, roaring debut Chapter I: Introspect, that featured the massive, fan-favourite singles ‘The Abandoned’ and ‘Fortune Collapse’ (Feat. PERIPHERY frontman Spencer Sotelo). Following a year of solid touring and festival appearances, the band returned to the studio in late 2019/early 2020 to record their heavily anticipated Chapter II: Bloom. Now armed with seasoned experience, new-found depth and maturity and a refined skillset, CURSES enter the next phase of their story with one of metalcore’s most promising records of 2020.
