Last month, Munich based melodic hardcore / post hardcore band WE TOO, WILL FADE dropped their new EP ‘Everything Falls Apart as It Should’ via Midsummer Records, along with double music video for “I Tried My Best/My Dying Friend” (watch below) and just recently, a new video for the EP title track. To celebrate their achievement and share their creative example, we’re giving it some more space to appreciate its power, anthemic catchiness and beauty with special track by track commentary, delivered by the band themselves.
The new 3-trackers, despite its brevity, is packed with poignancy; a cutting social criticism allayed by the band’s soothing and atmospheric tones. We Too, Will Fade showcase a rich and melodic brand of post-hardcore, splashed with notes of emo, shoegaze and post-rock. With multiple European tours and a support slot with State Champs to their name, the German quartet continue to unleash their emotive, raw and mesmerizing sound across the scene, both in Europe and further afield.
My Dying Friend:
As an opener of our new release, we wanted some sort of a transition from our previous EP „Enough“ to our new material. My Dying Friend is a song which was written in the „Enough-times“. With our new line up we took the existing song and changed some parts, added some melodies and perfected it to the current shape. My Dying Friend talks about the doubt of a long-lasting relationship and especially the loss of love for a significant someone due to growing apart. All of us identified with this experience and felt that the phrase „My Dying Friend“ is a good metaphor for this unfortunate feeling.
I Tried My Best:
This is the first song which was written from scratch with our newest members. We derived influences from artists such as Modern Error, Gatherers or Turnover and were set to explore new sounds. We were lucky to have so many great people helping us putting this together, especially the singalong part of the song. Lyrically the song is about the things we don’t want to talk about or find uncomfortable to address. It is about the state of Limbo that governs our daily life and about finding a way to solve internal conflicts, by addressing them.
Everything Falls Apart As It Should:
The title track of the EP is something very unique and special to us. The main acoustic guitar part has been there for several years now, however it all came together and made sense in mere seconds once the words “Everything Falls Apart As It Should” were said out loud the very first time. We knew we wanted a softer, more ambient come-down after the two roaring tracks, but the subtle social criticism was unexpectedly introduced while recording vocals for it. It is a broken home, a place you have to go back to with a certain unease. But it is our, your home.
