02) Toothgrinder premiere “My Favorite Hurt” music video
Toothgrinder have premiered a video for the song “My Favorite Hurt.” The track is taken from the group’s new album I Am, which is scheduled to arrive on October 11th via Spinefarm.
Frontman Justin Payne Matthews commented:
“‘My Favorite Hurt‘ digs deeper into the relationships I have destroyed while in the throws of alcoholism and addiction. There is this dark place I have found myself many times throughout my life where I am always reaching for that next high and that next adrenaline rush. I am looking for anything to keep the wall between fantasy and reality hidden.
The problem is while I selfishly seek out pleasure in all forms, there is an endless amount of destruction I leave in my path. People I love more than anything turn to nothing more than a means to an end. It’s a crippling mind fuck that overtime manipulates itself into a psychosis.
I am addicted to people, affection of all kinds, newness, the ego and most of all the ebb and flow of pleasure and pain. I think I can trace back these thought patterns to age 5 or 6, little things that make so much sense now, but could not be brought to the surface for so long.
I have found solitude in true love and meaningful connection. I never want to intentionally hurt anyone again, and for those I have, I am deeply sorry. ‘My Favorite Hurt‘ is the light born from the death of the shadow. I expose myself to help others, because if I continue to live a lie and hide the truth, I can never be my true self.”
Pre-Order I Am here.
