Connecticut Metalcore band Boundaries have released a new single, “Armageddon”, the title track to the two-song digital single previewed with the March release of “Bedlam.” The “Armageddon” single follows their debut album, Burying Brightness, which arrived late last year. Both songs were recorded during the Burying Brightness sessions with producer Randy Leboeuf (The Acacia Strain, Kublai Khan).
Matt McDougal says of the band’s approach to the session that bore both Burying Brightness and the singles:
We utilized their voices for the first time. There’s definitely a new dynamic. We focused on writing some choruses. We made it a little prettier and calmer, changing up the listening experience. We wanted to use all of the tools we have at our disposal on this record. We didn’t leave anything out.
Guitar player Cory Emond adds:
Our goal is to write exactly the kinds of songs we want to with no barriers. I feel like we did that. We’ve always wanted to have songs with singing, but we were never able to capture it until now. We also have some of the heaviest songs we’ve ever written. It has both extremes.
The band recently announced a new round of North American tour dates, joining Counterparts and Like Moths To Flames for a three-week trek.
