Experimental doom outfit Livid have premiered a new track off their upcoming full-length Beneath This Shroud, The Earth Erodes titled “The Fire”. Frontman Cole Benson says:
“We worked on ‘The Fire’ for over a year. It was the most challenging song to get right, we tried different lyrics, vocal melodies, and guitar lead lines before we got it perfect. I remember hearing the test pressing for first time and freaking out with excitement when ‘The Fire’ came on.”
Bassist Chad Padelford adds:
“We put a lot of work into that song. Day of, we we’re still changing and adding parts. The outro was done on the fly. As we were ringing out the end of the song, we weren’t sure how we were going to end it, when Cole just kept playing. It was so spontaneous and genuine. It was perfect.”
The new record is slated for release on July 14th through Prosthetic Records. Pre-orders are available here.
