Austin, TX outfit The Bearer debuts a new song entitled “Maru Says Hello”, taken from the upcoming new EP “Fiction”, which will be released on March 10 (digital and vinyl) by CoinTossRecords and Blasphemour Records.
Check out now “Maru Says Hello” below.
Comments the band’s guitarist Michael:
“There is sometimes a fine line between what is real and what we perceive to be the truth. Lyrically, the song is the perspective of two separate people; one who’s foundation is in facts and the other, on their faith. It explores how faith-based facts can be terrifying. Oh…also… X- Files! Musically, this song was born out of the lyrics. The idea that truth can sometimes be relative, messy, and completely fabricated. The verses are aggressive and pushy, while the choruses are reserved and open, but still dark. Then you get lead into a bridge that just punches you in the face.”
Fiction was recorded in Austin, TX with Andrew Hernandez (The Sword, Mammoth Grinder) at Estuary Recording Facility. Mastering was done by Simon Sludge (Nightmarer, War From A Harlots Mouth), and the vinyl master was put in the capable hands of Alan Douches of West West Side Music. The cover art, in alternate editions from each label, was created by Alexandre Goulet (Despised Icon, Meet the Mailman).
