Australian metalcore outfit Buried in Verona have announced that their new LP, Vultures Above, Lions Below is due for release on August 7th via Rise Records and ahead of the official release the band are streaming the lead single, Can’t Be Unsaid. This is the band’s first release since 2014’s Faceless and features a number of lineup changes; Mark Harris (guitar), Brandon Martel (bass) and James Swanson (drums). Vocalist Brett Anderson has said this about the single:
“‘Can’t Be Unsaid’ is about letting go of all the negativity surrounding myself and Buried In Verona…I wrote it when I was at my lowest point as a way to get me past everything that had happened. Ever since then, I’ve been focusing on the positives and using music as my escape again. After years of anguish I’m so happy to have regained my passion for music.
The idea we would like to encourage everyone to get behind is this: write down whatever in your life is painful, hurting you, bringing you down – basically whatever is stopping you from being truly happy with yourself and your life. Write it as down as honestly as you can and project the negativity on to the page, into the ink and let go of it. Take it to a calm place that you love, read it one last time, set it alight and watch it burn. Don’t live in the negative space with negative people. Life is short, don’t waste it.”
