Life In Vacuum, ‘Seven’ – Exclusive Song Premiere

Skeletal Lightning

The term “post-hardcore” has been bastardized. When it surfaced in the late ’80s, it was used to describe many of the bands who’s members sprung out of the hardcore scene (Fugazi, Quicksand) but were infusing more melody, dissonant guitar riffs and jagged rhythmic patterns into their songwriting.

These days, many watered-down Warped Tour-approved bands have taken to calling their metalcore-meets-pop-punk sound post-hardcore. But knows better, and that’s why discovering Life In Vacuum has been such a rush.

The band’s forthcoming ‘V’ album shares a spiritual connection to many of the influential post-hardcore records Dischord and Touch & Go released a couple of decades ago, but Live In Vacuum also have a quirky way to their tempo shifts that calls to mind groups like Wire and Gang of Four.

Knowing a good thing when we hear it, volunteered to premiere the track ‘Seven,’ and Life In Vacuum agreed.

“‘Seven’ is one of the last tracks we wrote and recorded for the LP,” the band says. “It’s about being stuck in a limbo of a familiar comfortable place, going through emotions of guilt and indecision and reasoning with your own comfort trying to break away.”

Check out ‘Seven’ below and look out for ‘V’ when it hits stores (vinyl/CD) on Feb. 4.
