Much like its predecessors “Gasoline Anthem” and “Under My Skin”, APATE’s latest single “Dancing On The Razor’s Edge” continues to smash through the boundaries of metalcore, delivering another cut that embraces both the genre innovation APATE are building their name on while retaining the nostalgia of early 2000s nu-metal.
Vocalist/guitarist Caleb Patch explains: “Dancing On The Razor’s Edge was the last song we sorted out. It’s super hooky and I think reflects how well we worked together in the studio after being crammed in there together for months. Lyrically it came from a place of uncertainty with where we were as a band before we got in the studio to record Rage. We knew music was what we wanted to do, but we felt stuck as a band and uncertain of our future. It’s a bit melancholic but shows a glimmer of hope. We weren’t even sure if this record would see the light of day, but as it all came together, we knew we had to put our all into music and give it the best shot we could.”
