Long Island rockers MoonTooth have announced the upcoming release of Violent Grief: Acoustic Selections will be out July 31. The EP is comprised of new song, Six of Swords, as well as 4 songs from the band’s critically-acclaimed 2019 release CRUX.
“Time is the only thing with a chance of washing grief away. It’s a process that can be ugly, violent and in most cases not brief,” shares John Carbone (vocals) on the meaning behind the EP title. “In order to let time do it’s work properly, a person must recognize the difference between the violence that’s necessary and the violence that’s clung to. At some point, grief is a choice. When time’s done it’s job, it’s up to us to put the hurt down.”
Fans can get a taste of what’s to come from the forthcoming EP with the release of, Awe at All Angles. Carbone continues sharing that Awe At All Angles is about breaking away from something you feel trapped by; a relationship, a job, an unhealthy pattern of behavior, etc. It’s about not bowing down to other’s expectations but living up to your own by staying true to your free spirit. Especially in the face of people or situations that encourage you to ignore that free spirit.”
