“Paradise And Plague” is the brand new single from Counterparts!

Paradise And Plague” is the third single from Counterparts‘ forthcoming record, “Nothing Left To Love”. The album muses on many of the topics vocalist Brendan Murphy has in the past: life’s darkness, self-destructive tendencies and the self-flagellation they beget.

Nothing Left To Love” shows the band moving their uniquely captivating sound forward without losing the musical DNA that broke them back in the early 2010s. It’s a musical tour through the band’s history, as more melodic elements sharply swerve into caustic breakdowns reminiscent of their debut album, 2010’s “Prophets”.

This time around, the singer is writing not just about the end result but also the because, willing to shoulder some of the blame more than he ever has in the past. It’s easy to point the finger at others for the harm they’ve caused us. It’s far harder to accept that the root might lie at the opposite end of that hand.

My perspective [on what happened in my life] has changed so much, even in just a few yearsBrenand Murphy says. “It’s a terrible spot to be in, but some of my best material creatively came from me just being willing to admit things out loud”.
