Counterparts Launch Latest Single, “Whispers of Your Death”

Hamilton, ON-based metalcore heavyweights Counterparts are set to release their seventh full-length album, A Eulogy For Those Still Here, on October 7th, 2022 via New Damage Records. The record fin the band tapping into a deep sense of dread that pushes their visceral sound to even greater extremes. The project hones its focus on uncertainty and facing the unknown, resulting in the group’s most definitive statement to date.

On July 26th, Counterparts shared the upcoming album’s second single, “Whispers of Your Death,” featuring intricately intense riffs, crushing drums, and a sound that overall towers over all in the metal world. As it introduces themes underlying throughout their next full-length, the song follows a darker tone to previous works they’ve launched prior.

I feel like anyone who has been following the band/me pre-pandemic knew this was coming, but this song is about my cat Kuma. My ex and I rescued him just under two years ago and he is hands down the sole reason I stuck around long enough to even make this record. Shortly after he was rescued, we developed a special bond and now I can’t imagine my life without him. Unfortunately in the first few months we had him, he became very sick and almost died due to complications of a blood parasite while being FIV positive. Nobody believed he would make it… but luckily he is still here with us and currently doing great. Being his dad is hands down the most important thing I’ve ever done in my life and also what I am most proud of. I love him more than anything in the world and this song is my tribute to him for quite literally giving me a reason to live.
