Limbs reveal the story behind new single, “Suffering”

Fresh off releasing their vicious new singles “Empty Vessel” and “I Used To Be You”, post hardcore band LIMBS is back with the explosive “Suffering”. The third and final song in the band’s newly EP “Only The Lonely Know”, out now via UNFD.

’Suffering’ was written as a therapeutic response to my battle with depression and crippling anxiety. It’s essentially a letter to myself, dwelling on the crucial decision of giving up versus pressing forward”, shares vocalist Austin McAuley.

The song is just as the title suggests, a tale of one’s own suffering and the unfortunate realization of being unable to preserve my own well-being. The lyrics “Forget my name. Watch me as I fade away like an unmarked grave” are a proclamation to the listener, shedding light on the darkness in one’s mind. Wondering if I’d be easily forgotten when I was gone.

This song was especially difficult for me to listen back to initially because it shows a side of myself that I constantly attempted to hide. Nonetheless, themes of optimism and positivity are gently woven into what seems to be a telling of someone giving up completely. As humans, we can be so easily defined by our suffering but our true colors are shown by how we deal with our ever changing existence”.
