Atlanta’s blackened doom heathens, Withered have launched “Extinguished With the Weary,” the lead track from their upcoming album, “Dualitas,” due October 26th, as part of the new “Metal Swim” collection, presented by Scion A/V and Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim. The track is available exclusively as a free download on AdultSwim.com/metal starting September 20th.
Guitarist/vocalist Mike Thompson commented on the track: “We chose ‘Extinguished With The Weary,” because this song really showcases some of the newer styling to be experienced on ‘Dualitas.’ It is actually the last song we wrote for the album and we always have a tendency to gravitate towards our newest music when given a choice. We are always looking ahead. This song in particular deals with this same concept. It is about letting go of your emotional & moral foundation. Casting away all the conditioning forced upon you by society, family, friends, etc. so you can redevelop your own reality and approach to life. It’s about finding the freedom to, and eliminating any fear of, establishing a pure existence for yourself without repercussion. Also, it’s really heavy and nasty; a really good listen.”
