Make Them Suffer has recruited the first guest they've ever had on their music, and they've made it count! The band teamed with Spiritbox vocalist Courtney LaPlante for a new single titled "Contraband", which vocalist Sean Harmanis has been in the works for a while now.
"'Contraband' came together centered around one of the riffs in the song that we'd aptly named the 'floppy fingers' riff," says vocalist Sean Harmanis. "We'd actually had this [riff] in the bank since way back in 2016. As the song came together, we decided that it was a great opportunity to include Make Them Suffer's first-ever guest feature, and we couldn't have picked anyone better than Courtney! She was a joy to work with and showed such a great enthusiasm toward the song and her parts."
"Lyrically, the song is about everything and nothing at the same time. It's about relationships with friends and family. But it's also a low-key political song, as well as an expression of the frustrations surrounding COVID and its impact on our lives, particularly as members of the music community."
"Contraband" is available on all streaming platforms now.
