Love and Death Unleash New Song ‘I W8 4 U’
Love and Death are certainly out to grab your attention as 2013 begins. The band has just released the new song, ‘I W8 4 U,’ an in-your-face rocker off the band’s upcoming album, ‘Between Here & Lost.’
Former Korn guitarist Brian “Head” Welch and his band offer this slab of industrial rock sludge with a full slice of frustration and anguish on the side. The track, which features a guest appearance by Mattie Montgomery, kicks off with screaming guitars and the some electronic trudging to set the ebb and flow of the song. The hard-edged sound is contrasted perfectly with the song’s dynamic vocals, shifting between a mumbled whisper to full-on screaming at different parts of the track.
Lyrically, ‘I W8 4 U’ is a study in thinned-out patience turned into complete and utter frustration as the song serves up lyrics like “Tell me you lost it / Tell me you lost it / Whatever it takes / I won’t let him break you” in one sentiment followed by “Fed up with missing you / fed up of all your lies / fed up with chasing you / fed up with your disguise” a little later.
‘I W8 4 U’ follows the band’s earlier preview of ‘The Abandoning.’ The song appears on the group’s forthcoming album, ‘Between Here & Lost,’ which is due Jan. 22. You can pre-order the disc here.
