Pure Noise Records has welcomed Canadian melodic-hardcore band Counterparts to their growing roster. The band plans to release their fourth studio album in the U.S. through the label later in 2015. Vocalist Brendan Murphy weighs in:
“We’re happy to finally be able to announce that we’ve signed to Pure Noise/New Damage… In my opinion, these are two of the best current record labels in their respective territories. The decision to sign with PN/ND was an obvious one. Thank you to those who stuck by us, and anyone who actually cares about anything we do. It means more than you know.”

Vocalist Gage Armstrong has spoken to Substream about the track:
‘Better Days’ started as a letter I was writing to my mom, letting her know how she had affected my life with the poor decisions that she decided to make for hers. Then when Sean (guitarist) and I decided it was time to go into the studio it was the only thing I could think of to put on our first song. As if I was finally getting what I needed to say off of my chest.”
