Buffalo-based post-hardcore band A Story Inspired has released a new single from their forthcoming EP Overcome/Overthrow. The glitchy, synth-infused metal track “Weak Willed” features Fit For A King‘s Ryan Kirby on guest vocals. The song is an ode to an issue that has impacted more than one member of the band.
“This track is about drug overdose and self-harm,” says guitarist Ryan Ridley. “Within the past few years, many of the guys in ASI have had good friends and loved ones pass away due to drug overdose. The heartbreaking feeling of losing those close to you because of this isn’t one that is unfamiliar to us and I’m sure to many of our fans and friends, as well. This is to any of our friends struggling with drug addiction and self-harm.“
Overcome/Overthrow was produced, mixed and mastered by Andrew Baylis (Nine Shrines, Fallen Captive). In addition to Kirby, the record also features a track with Memphis May Fire‘s Matty Mullins on guest vocals. It will be available this Friday (4/28) on all digital retailers.
