Metalcore outfit, Rogue are gearing up for their new EP, Phantom. Today (21st), the group has teamed up with Metal Insider to stream a video for their latest single “Jackal,” as well as streaming their new EP.
The group comments on the track:
“‘Jackal’ represents the final understanding that every single thing is one, and that the good and bad parts of nature are reflected in everything we see. Amidst our daily lives, especially with social media, the majority of people tend to take incredibly nuanced issues and simplify them into a “0” or “1” binary fashion as a security blanket. In this song, we set out to reinforce the idea that no matter how much we try to simplify or dramatize these issues, we are not exempt from the good and bad of nature that these issues often conceal.”
On the EP:
“‘Phantom’ is a record that allowed us to take the topics we have spoken about previously, and explore them through the new perspectives of grief and sorrow. As we dealt with adversity in the face of a global paradigm shift, this record came from the band’s members and overall musical direction embracing a darker path. Despite the defeat and hopelessness presented throughout, we experienced a cathartic release that will undoubtedly resonate with people on a more emotional level than previous records.”
