Share New Single “Brief Candles”

death pose are a brand new heavy-as-sh*t band from Chicago, IL. Originally known as big bird., the band formed in 2022 from the ashes of numerous punk/hardcore/indie bands including Typesetter, The Sky We Scrape, Little Teeth, etc. After quickly releasing a three-song EP, they supported heavy hitters like The Casket Lottery, Local H and Hum’s Matt Talbot, along with an appearance at Gainesville’s 20th anniversary of the legendary Fest.

Today the band has announced their full-length debut, ‘Midnight Society’ set for release this October via Brutal Panda Records. death pose tear through 13 incendiary tracks of down-tuned punk/post-hardcore influenced noise rock replete with indelible hooks, sharp angular riffage, and a rhythm section that resonates with urgency. The album was produced by Jeff Dean (Alkaline Trio, Braid, The Story So Far, Samiam) at The Echo Mill and mastered by Alan Douches (Converge, Every Time I Die, Thrice, Mastodon, Dillinger Escape Plan) at West West Side. Dark lyrical themes of personal dissociation, political action, religious intolerance, heartbreak, and the human experience are woven throughout, adding a layer of realism and responsibility to their discord.

Commenting on the new track, death pose said,

“‘Brief Candles’ is about the fleeting nature of our lives and how we choose to spend our time – particularly with those that we love, and the heartbreaking changes in reciprocation that sometimes happen over time. When one decides that perhaps they don’t “feel it” anymore, seemingly out of the blue. When they’d rather suddenly abandon the life that they’ve built with their partner just to chase the next shiny penny bouncing down the road, spraining their ankles along the way.”

Chris Ianuzzi: Distant Suns/Wide Side two-sided single

Story: Ralph Greco, Jr. Spacey blips flow into a synth-led danceable beat, with vocals making more music than they do an actual statement on the first tune of NYC-composer Chris Ianuzzi’s new double single. This tune, “Distant Suns,” keeps up with its blurring, plastic-pulling video-game sounds, and swirling vocals throughout its mid-tempo four-minute + mélange. […]
