Perth’s metal elite Make Them Suffer have just shared the new song “Drown With Me”. The song is a gnarly, groove-centric riff fest that will appear on the quintet’s forthcoming album How To Survive A Funeral, which arrives this winter via Greyscale Records.
“‘Drown With Me’ is just a really fucked up love song,” the band bluntly explains. “Love can be beautiful, but also dark and terrifying. The lyrics ‘Take my hand, don’t be scared, drown with me if you can’ beckons the listener to take the plunge into the unknown.”
How To Survive A Funeral is the Make Them Suffer’s fourth full-length and sees inspiration from their past and present sounds twisted together into a package that will define their place amongst their contemporaries as a truly creative act. The band enlisted Drew Fulk A.K.A. WZRDBLD, who has worked with everyone from Motionless In White and Bullet For My Valentine to Yelawolf and Lil’ Wayne. The band traveled to L.A. to hole up at Fulk’s studio. It marked the first time in the band’s career that it worked this closely with a producer and the result is truly something unique.
