Melbourne metalcore outfit Wither have been killing it lately, having just finished supporting Thy Art Is Murder across their latest sold-out Australian tour, and now they've dropped a monolithic new single called 'Use Me' which you can annihilate your ears with below.
The song is a pummeling, ultra-heavy affair with an equally hellish music video accompanying, which even has a snake wrapping its way around vocalist David De La Hoz as he spits pure vitriol.
Check it out:
De La Hoz elaborates on the song's meaning:
"The longer your life is, the more people come and go from it. Some relationships we build are positively impactful, some are not. But then there are also relationships that, as they develop, feel as if they’re positively impactful but the relationship is merely a façade used to conceal an agenda. I learn more and more with each day that a lot of the people I have and will welcome into my life are users. Snakes. They will slide in under the guise of friendship, and they will drain me. Once they get what they want, they detach, and I become barely even worth a memory. Not everyone is your friend. Not everyone actually likes you like you hope they do."
If you're in Melbourne, these guys are playing a special headline release show at the Northcote Social Club on August 23, with Diamond Construct, Forsaker and Vatic opening the night:
