Torn From Your Silhouette, the newest single from one of our best metalcore discoveries last year, DYING WISH, has landed online.

This new banger is receiving a lot of positive comments. Listeners are praising the band’s early metalcore revival style, featuring both savage screams and clean vocals. It has us eagerly anticipating the opportunity to experience it live, so can’t wait to catch these guys on tour.

“‘Torn From Your Silhouette’ is written about taking the risk of being vulnerable with another person, only to find they have dishonest intentions and take advantage of your willingness to love,” says singer Emma Boster. “While writing this song, I was tender from a recent heartache. I felt as if society’s standard for romance had become increasingly casual. While that felt comfortable for me for a while, I had grown into a place in my life where I was seeking more from my connections with other people. I was ready to tear down the walls I had put up to protect myself. This song is about accepting that would result in what I had feared the most: rejection and pain.”


She continues, “The line ‘I’d rather feel everything than nothing at all’ is particularly important to me. I took pride in the feeling that I had at least given myself the opportunity to fail rather than continue to contribute to a repeating cycle of being numb to surface level attachments. Thanks for listening.”

DYING WISH is a metalcore band from Portland, Oregon that infuses their music with a punk spirit. Their unyielding sound focuses on struggle and the fight for liberation, covering issues affecting BIPOC, the environment, policing, and other intersectional causes. Despite their personal tribulations and trauma, they make music with the aim of promoting unity without compromising their message.

In their demo, DYING WISH’s music was described by Invisible Oranges as “joyous, unflinching violence.” The band’s success earned them a nomination for Best International Band at the Heavy Music Awards in the UK, despite having only a demo and split 7″ to their name. Their full-length debut album, Fragments of a Bitter Memory, produced, mixed, and mastered by Randy LeBoeuf (The Acacia Strain, Kublai Khan, Sentinels), is a powerful and explosive offering consisting of 11 songs. The album delivers a focused, savage, and pummeling assault against personal trauma and society at large.

DYING WISH’s diverse sound fuses the New Wave of American Heavy Metal with chaotic hardcore dissonance. Their DIY ethos has helped them forge both a musical and activist identity that upholds values of equality, justice, and self-determination. With their success, DYING WISH has become part of a resurgence in postmodern noisecore, often mentioned in the same breath as groups like Code Orange and Knocked Loose.

At the heart of DYING WISH is the call for revolution and liberation, both in spirit and song. They make music that aligns with the fight for freedom and justice, making them a band to watch for fans of heavy music with a message.
