The Dutch melodic punk rock band Ink Bomb will release their debut album “Fiction” on August 23rd 2019. In the meantime, the guys have also revealed a single, titled “Griefwalker”.
“Griefwalker has that typical skate punk sound we are known for. But also features a weird song structure and some complex drum rhythms you wouldn’t normally find in a punk rock song clocking in under two minutes”, bass player Arina Banga explains.
“The name of the song is derived from a 2008 Canadian documentary”, clarifies singer Joost Hoedemaeckers. “It’s basically a thought experiment on the collective human fear of dying. Why are we afraid to die? Griefwalker is about the notion that we shouldn’t be afraid of death but live with it. Walk alongside death or accept help in confronting it.”
