Limbs recently parted ways with their vocalist Chris Costanza and recruited new vocalist Austin McAuley. They've also lost exactly zero of their edge and anger, and are proving exactly that with a new song called "Abandoned." The song is McAuley's debut, and I personally would like to take this time to say that neither myself or the band are responsible for you breaking anything whilst moshing to this track. That's on you.
Here's what McAuley and guitarist Jordan Hunter had to say about the lineup change and new track.
Vocalist Austin McAuley:
"I'm extremely grateful for the opportunity and am very excited for everything in the future. Joining LIMBS really has pushed me musically, and creating these new jams has me so hyped. Stepping into this new role has definitely been challenging in some aspects, but it's given me the privilege to join my closest friends on stage every night, as well as further develop the standards in our writing. I believe this new music heavily reflects our movement forward, and quite frankly I'm ready to release more."
Guitarist Jordan Hunter:
"Austin's arrival definitely affected the dynamic of the band, but in a fantastic way. We've really taken a new approach to writing songs collectively, and Austin coming into the picture was a direct cause of that. He was already close with the band prior to his induction, so the camaraderie has been second-nature while on the road and in the studio. He's a terrific fit."
"The song [Abandoned] is quite literally a narrative of struggling to accept one's own flaws. It represents the rejecting of negative emotions, coupled with a perpetual need for self-preservation. We wrote this song differently than any song we've ever written before – all together in a room from start to finish. We've definitely adopted a more collective-based style of writing as opposed to having one person write most things primarily. No part of this song was written during the crafting of the Father's Son LP."
