Spineshank stream new song Anger Denial Acceptance

Spineshank are streaming the title track from their upcoming album ‘Anger Denial Acceptance’ in the player below. Also read the short interview with Tommy Decker regarding the song from Revolver. This will be their first album since the 2003 release ‘Self-Destructive Pattern’ will be released sometime next year after they have found a label to release the album through.

Revolver: What’s “Anger Denial Acceptance” about?
Tommy Decker: The song deals with loss. The title stems from some of the stages of grief. Each stage is represented in a certain part of the song. This song is the centerpiece of the whole record and ties everything together.

Revolver: Which part of it did you come up with first? And what was the inspiration?
Tommy Decker: Mike actually came up with the initial skeleton of the song. He had a pretty clear idea of where he wanted to go with it by the time the rest of us got our hands on it. Once we locked down the arrangement, we went to work on the lyrics. There are a lot of lyrics in this song and they are all very real. Every word on this song is based on experiences that one of us went through–unfortunately for us, our best songs are derived from pain and misery. It is also the first song that was a lyrical collaboration between Mike [Sarkisyan, guitar], Jonny [Santos, vocals], and I. We were all on the same page on this one.

Revolver: Was this an easy song to write or record?
Tommy Decker: Nothing on this record was easy to write. Each of us had to go through some personal tragedies before we were able to write a song like this. It takes us right back to the loss thing–everyone in the world has to experience the loss in their lives, whether it be death or otherwise, it’s a part of life and this is how we dealt with it. We were able to take something painful and turn it into a positive.

Revolver: What sort of feedback have you gotten on this song so far? What sort of reaction do you want to get from the song?
Tommy Decker: The feedback has been great! This song has every element that you expect from Spineshank: It’s heavy, dynamic, and catchy. It also has a lot of electronic elements to it. I think we have really progressed with this song–there are some things about this song that we wouldn’t have been able to pull off a few years ago. We’ve progressed as songwriters. We’ve been a band for a long time now and I think it would be a little bit of a cop out if we just stuck to a formula and wrote the same type of songs we were writing 10 years ago. I feel like we really put everything into this song. I hope that people just connect with it. Like I said earlier, the lyrics deal with something that everyone can relate to. It doesn’t matter how old you are, or what country you live in, or how much money you have. You will be able to relate to this song.
