Cons sign with Revival Recordings; announce Slowhealer EP, debut first single “The Burden Of Knowing Why”

Cons – formerly known as Coma Prevail – have signed a record deal with Revival Recordings, who will be releasing their new EP Slowhealer on August 11th. The effort was recorded, produced, and mixed by Beau Burchell (Saosin, It Prevails, Emery). Regarding the EP, guitarist Jeremy Talley offered:

“We recorded Slowhealer almost 2 years ago and had plans to self release and basically give it away just to get our music out there. That being said we couldn’t be more honored and stoked to release this through Revival. It brings a sense of validation to what we’ve been working so hard on, to have a great label show interest and pick up the reins and give it the proper release that we feel it deserves. Thank you to everyone involved in this with us. We can’t wait to get this out there and get to work.”

The first taste of Slowhealer is also available now, listen to first single “The Burden Of Knowing Why” below. Talley said of it:

“Religion, Drugs, lust, power, money, etc.; these things that distract us and keep a veil over our eyes as the oncoming storm of ceasing to exist ever approaches. It’s about accepting our inevitable fates and finding love in ourselves and for one another before it’s too late to get the most out of our short lives. This song is one of the more rhythmically complicated songs throughout the first minute, a lot of chaos held together by the vocals. The mid point in the song transitions into something a little more listener friendly and we wanted an anthemic positive vocal to close out the song with. “
