Massachusetts metalcore heavy hitters Within the Ruins have announced a headlining run through the east coast for the end of this year:
We are excited to announce this string of shows with Degrader and Lost In Separation in December! Tickets go on sale Friday, 10am local time. Where will we see you?!
The mini-trek takes off in Albany at Chrome on December 13 and hits MA and NH before closing out in Long Island at Amityville Music Hall on December 16 [TIX]. See complete tour info below.
In more news… this past summer, Within the Ruins released a surprise digital 45 containing previously unreleased singles “World Undone” and “Resurgence.”
Regarding the newly released songs, guitarist Joe Cocchi comments:
These songs were both written over the course of a big transition period for this band. They have a unique vibe. Nonetheless, we’re more than thrilled to have Steve step up and take over on vocals. It couldn’t be a better fit for us. We’ve known Steve for years through touring and it feels right to have his voice, personality, and creativity as a part of our bands future now.
New vocalist Steve Tinnon adds:
I wrote these songs as a pair. I wanted them to go together. ‘World Undone’ is about feeling like you’ve lost everything and your world has come crumbling down. You’ve been mentally and physically defeated, and no one around you even cares. Everyone goes through dark times where they just feel lost and don’t know what to do. ‘Resurgence’ is the follow up to that scenario. It’s about making your way out of those difficult situations and coming out on the other side as a stronger person than before.
Life can be a constant struggle, and I think that’s very relatable to a lot of people. But I want these songs to serve as a reminder that no matter how bad things seem, you need to keep pushing and keep fighting. Things can get better. Don’t give up.
Stream both singles after the dates.
