MIRRORS - Release "Leave Them Behind" and Announce Debut Album 'The Ego's Weight'

Gippsland natives, Mirrors, are today announcing their second single of the year, and the second single to release via Resist Records, the atmospheric and haunting "Leave Them Behind". Spearheading the way, "Leave Them Behind" arrives alongside the announcement of their long-awaited debut album, 'The Ego's Weight', out on October 8 via Resist Records.

"Leave Them Behind" was welcomed by Blunt Mag yesterday, where they described it as "a track with as much swagger as it has snarl, with a mystifying twist of emo-esque flair". The new single ushers in a further departure from the bands roots and moves towards a more heavy alternative sound while retaining the atmosphere, density and all-encompassing rhythm that has come to define Mirrors.

Vocalist Patrick Goodman writes: "Leave Them Behind" portrays the constant fight of moving away from the parts of yourself that you don’t want to be through setting positive goals instead of dwelling on anxiety and uncertainty. Everyone runs away from something, so run away from the worst in you."

Ceaseless work by the band alongside the production team of Scott Simpson and Lance Prenc (Polaris, Alpha Wolf) began in 2019 and throughout 2020, culminating with a ten track, genre busting tour de force, leaving behind their metalcore roots.

Lyrical themes centre around the fall of morality and values while seeking to take decisive action against hate delivered by the soaring vocals of Goodman. Set against a backdrop of subtle and sparse grooves, to heart wrenching ballads and frenetic heavy compositions, 'The Ego’s Weight' truly is a journey for any lover of music and finally displays Mirrors as a whole greater than the sum of its parts.

Showcasing their new sound, Mirrors will be joining a stacked bill on Polaris' upcoming spring tour, which will see the band opening shows nationally in October alongside Make Them Suffer, Justice For The Damned and Polaris. Tickets available via Destroy All Lines.

Formed in late 2016 by vocalist Patty Goodman and guitarist Tyson Taifer before welcoming Jack Mackin on bass and later Rob Brens on drums, metalcore outfit Mirrors quickly turned the eyes and ears of Australian listeners towards Regional Victoria with the release of their debut EP 'Fool’s Paradise' in 2017 and their 2019 follow-up 'Cold Sanctuary'. These releases took the band beyond the borders of Victoria and around the country, showcasing their craft to audiences on tour with the likes of Wage War, Alpha Wolf, Thornhill, Crystal Lake and many more.

"Leave Them Behind" is as enticing as it gets for what's in store from Mirrors' debut album, "The Ego's Weight", out on October 8 via Resist Records. Pre-order here.
