BITTER BRANCHES - Share Caustic New Single "Plastic Tongues"

Today, post-hardcore outfit Bitter Branches shared their new track and lyric video "Plastic Tongues", which will appear on their upcoming album Your Neighbors Are Failures due out on February 25th, 2022 via Rude Records/Equal Vision Records. The album will also be available as a limited edition red/white vinyl variant available for pre-order through BrooklynVegan. Comprised of Tim Singer (Deadguy, Kiss It Goodbye, No Escape), guitarists Matt Ryan (Calvary) and Kevin Sommerville (Lighten Up!) along with drummer Jeff Tirabassi (Walleye) and the inimitable Dan Yemin (Lifetime, Kid Dynamite, Paint It Black) on bass, the group continues to push the boundaries of their genre to give the listener something special - an exploration of the musical pedigree the groups legendary lineup has honed throughout years of touring and recording.

"Plastic Tongues" is a slow burning tune that highlights the bands propensity for blending their hardcore roots with emo, post-hardcore and everything in between to create something entirely personal. Equal parts anguished and angry, the track builds on a powerful crescendo of serpentine guitar riffs and shimmering percussion supported by a crushing groove that will satisfy the punk rockers and the emo kids alike. Nightmarish vocals that oscillate between emotive spoken word and something much harsher build on the sinister undertone of the track.

The band shared the following thoughts on the theme of the song:

"Whole hordes of people and opinions and conversations that aren’t real or brave or important. But they invade every corner of our consciousness. Ultimately, they’re still anonymous and invisible".
