Official press release:
“‘Abandoned’ is quite literally a narrative of struggling to accept one’s own flaws. It represents the rejecting of negative emotions, coupled with a perpetual need for self-preservation. We wrote this song differently than any song we’ve ever written before – all together in a room from start to finish. We’ve definitely adopted a more collective-based style of writing as opposed to having one person write most things primarily.”
Additionally, the band has announced that longtime friend Austin McAuley will be stepping into the role of lead vocalist. McCauley debuted with Limbs at the end of 2018 while on tour with Currents, giving fans a taste of his energy and passion before bringing it into the studio for new music. Hunter adds:
“We’ve really taken a new approach to writing songs collectively, and Austin coming into the picture was a direct cause of that. He was already close with the band prior to his induction, so the camaraderie has been second-nature while on the road and in the studio. He’s a terrific fit.”
“I’m extremely grateful for the opportunity and am very excited for everything in the future. Joining Limbs really has pushed me musically, and creating these new jams has me so hyped. Stepping into this new role has definitely been challenging in some aspects, but it’s given me the privilege to join my closest friends on stage every night, as well as further develop the standards in our writing. I believe this new music heavily reflects our movement forward, and quite frankly I’m ready to release more.”
“Abandoned” will be available everywhere this Friday, March 29th.
Limbs will be back on the road this spring for the Feel Nothing Tour with The Plot In You, Like Moths To Flames, and Dayseeker. The full-U.S. run kicks off in Grand Rapids on March 30th, with additional stops in Chicago, Brooklyn, Atlanta, Limbs’ hometown of Tampa, and more.
