Wrapping up another exciting premiere week, we got the duo Crown of Pity who are back with their grungy new single “Siren Song.” The song takes you back to heydays when heavyhitters like Hole, Soundgarden and Alice in Chains were tearing down the stages with their incredible energy.

About the song, David comments

“I originally wrote “Siren Song” 10 years ago for an EBM band I was in called genCAB. At the time I was struggling with addiction to pain medication. It was a lot harder to quit than I thought it would be. I got a lot of advice that was hard to hear from people that I cared about, and I resented it. I didn’t like that I had become so transparent. So the song is really about struggling to let people that care about you into your life at your lowest. I feel it’s the most personal thing I’ve written, and was surprised that it translated better as a song now than it did then.”

Surfacing on the blurred edges of Philadelphia, Crown of Pity was built from the wreckage and rebirth of post-punk, shoegaze, lush tsunamis of reverb, walls of noise, post-hardcore, teenage fascination, and the dark smoky east coast clubs of the 90s. After cutting his teeth with solo project genCAB,and long-running industrial Aesthetic Perfection, Pity sparked to life when David Dutton (guitar, vocals, programming) and Natalie Rakes (bass, vocals) started jamming Dutton’s yet-unnamed new material and loud sonic flow ensued. Rakes, having plied the depths of Los Angeles with The Midnight Shakes and her solo work as Natalie Nylon, including being featured on American Horror Story, now anchors Dutton’s guitar maelstrom with haunting echos and saturated low-end bass to get lost in. With the final addition of the veteran production ear of Jeff Zeigler (Nothing, War On Drugs, Kurt Vile), their new EP, Everlasting Sunday, will leave you feeling nostalgic for the romantic post-apocalyptic future you’ve never had. It’s out for pre-order September 29th 2017, and releases on Halloween 2017.
