Dying Wish have just dropped a new metalcore banger straight out of 2003. "Torn From Your Silhouette" calls back to the burgeoning age of metalcore while delving deep into subjects like rejection and pain.
"Torn From Your Silhouette" is a standalone single from the Portland band — their first new piece of music since releasing Fragments of a Bitter Memory in 2021. The fresh cut showcases the best of Emma Boster's good cop/bad cop vocal style, while Dying Wish's instrumental sections keeps the track tight and rhythmic.
"'Torn From Your Silhouette' is written about taking the risk of being vulnerable with another person, only to find they have dishonest intentions and take advantage of your willingness to love," explained Boster. "While writing this song, I was tender from a recent heartache. I felt as if society's standard for romance had become increasingly casual. While that felt comfortable for me for a while, I had grown into a place in my life where I was seeking more from my connections with other people. I was ready to tear down the walls I had put up to protect myself. This song is about accepting that would result in what I had feared the most: rejection and pain."
She continued, "The line 'I'd rather feel everything than nothing at all' is particularly important to me. I took pride in the feeling that I had at least given myself the opportunity to fail rather than continue to contribute to a repeating cycle of being numb to surface level attachments. Thanks for listening."
