Within The Ruins Release New Song, "Death Of The Rockstar"

Massachusetts metal veterans Within The Ruins have released a new song, "Death Of The Rockstar" today. The track is the first bit of music from the band's forthcoming album, Halfway Human, due out March 3rd, 2017. The band recorded the new effort from their own studio with producer and guitar player Joe Cocchi at the helm. Vocal production took place at Zing studios in Westfield, MA with Jim Fogarty (Killswitch Engage, The Devil Wears Prada).

"Death of the Rockstar stems from our distaste for the current state of the music industry," says Joe Cocchi.  "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."

"The writing process was a bit different for this album," says Cocchi. "We took a step back and kind of reviewed some of our older material. Typically we'd rush and blast out a group of songs and then hit the studio. At the time it felt right. And It had a more organic feel. 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."

The band is heading over to Europe with label mates Fit For An Autopsy, The Last Ten Seconds of Life and Phinehas this fall. Tour dates are listed below!
