Massachusetts post-Hardcore band Bystander is releasing their new album, Nothing Matters via the Constant Disappointment label May 17th, and it promises to be great. This rising band has been making their presence felt throughout the region with their deft songwriting, emotional delivery, and clever use of dynamics. Ghost Cult has teamed up with the band to debut their new single ‘Deer Gloom III’ today, and it totally rips! You can check out the track at the stream below and pre-order the album now.
The band comments:
As a band we’ve always left everything up to interpretation. Deer Gloom III follows the same familiar disruption that Deer Gloom II (from our previous record, It All Went Away) had, but in a lot dimmer of a light as things never seem to change and people never seem to learn. Nothing Matters is written from the lowest points of self thinking in general day-to-day scenarios that everyone seems to experience from general fears to absurd hardships. We’ve always been about taking those gloomy days and making them into a reckless passion to progress forward for the sake of trying to stay happy for the longest period of time. Figuring out your way through the static gives you the chance to feel everything all the way through, and that’s what Nothing Matters is supposed to feel like. It’s about forgetting everything around you and working for better days.
