Within the Ruins Think Rockstars are Dead

Posted by on November 21, 2016

Deathcore veterans Within the Ruins are kinda pissed, and they want you to know about it. The group just released a track so lovingly called “Death of a Rockstar.” According to the band, it’s just a little insight into their view of the music industry. The title speaks for himself- they’re none too happy with the current state of things. Guitarist Joe Cocchi explained some of the motivation behind the song:

“The song is straight forward and speaks for itself. We live in an era where mindlessness and fads now trump true art and creativity. The music industry is polluted. Please enjoy.”

Cocchi, who took charge of production, also said that this track is just the beginning. The band’s fifth album, Halfway Human is due in March 2017. The guitarist promised this release is unlike their others.

“The writing process was a bit different for this album… Now because of a combination of maturity and honestly just feeling sick of the same old formula, we really focused on creating something different sounding.”

Within the Ruins is also heading overseas with Phineas, The Last Ten Seconds of Life and Fit For An Autopsy on a tour starting Nov. 26 .
