Skywalker have announced that they have signed to Pale Chord and they are celebrating in some style.
Vocalist Jay Kocera had this to say about the signing:
"We’re really excited to be partnering with Pale Chord for the release of our new album! Pale Chord share our vision and we wholeheartedly appreciate their unwavering support and commitment to growing the band globally."
Their first action is releasing a new song, taken from their new album.
'Every Grief' is a pure and polished slice of modern melodic post-hardcore that is as souring as it is savage.
It's also got a lot of sentimentality for Jay as he explains here:
"[This is] a pure expression of depression, despair, and loneliness. It's about pondering my earlier decisions to “go it alone” and only rely on myself, as is the contemporary mantra of extreme individualism. In the midst of it, I find loneliness, emptiness, cold, and gloom. I want to escape but find myself unable to do so. In the bridge, I turn to breathing meditation, a technique so cynically abused by the worst players of global markets and capitalism, and ultimately fail. However, there is a light at the end of the tunnel in the form of love, acceptance and letting go of what is not necessary or wholesome."
