PATIENT SIXTY-SEVEN Offers House-Shaking Grooves On "Wayfarer"'

One to crank up, of course.


Perth metalcore outfit Patient Sixty-Seven is now streaming their groovy, potentially foundation-shifting new single "Wayfarer." The single hits all streaming services on October 29, and you can pre-save it here. You can also check out their deluxe reissue of the 2020 debut EP Home Truths while you're there, which I highly recommend you do.

"'Wayfarer' is an important song for our band," said vocalist Tom Kiely. "I drew inspiration for the lyrics and themes from the graphic novel Sandcastle. The uncertainty and fears around the pandemic, life passing us by before our eyes. That fear struck a chord with me during the recording process , and the song really hones in on that – talking about the anxiety in growing older without a sense of purpose or direction.

"It's a bit different for us as most of our lyrics to date have been a little more literal – this was an opportunity to talk on what that fear felt like for me, and ask some harder questions. I'm really proud of Wayfarer and how it came together.

"Sound-wise, I feel it brings some new things to the table for us in terms of being more guitar-driven – pairing the soaring guitar leads and riffs with the big sing-along chorus. The vocal performance is one of my favourite I've ever given, and I feel it showcases our progression as a band in still wanting to keep it heavy – but bringing in new elements to help it feel fresh."
