Hear Wicca Phase Springs Eternal Embrace Heavy-Rock Roots on New Song "HARDCORE"

Adam McIlwee "takes what is mine" with goth-trap project's standalone single

Earlier this year, Adam McIlwee released Suffer On, an album that he considers the "first proper full-length" from his goth trap project Wicca Phase Springs Eternal. Eerie and mournful, dipping into folk and pop, the LP is elegiac in tone, and a far cry from the punchy punk of his previous rock band Tigers Jaw, not to mention some of the rock bands he's toured and collaborated with, such as Code Orange and Angel Du$t. Those leaning come much more to the forefront, however, on Wicca's new standalone single, the fittingly titled "HARDCORE," which was produced by Melbourne's Darcy Baylis and centers around a chugging guitar loop.

"Suffer On was an album about a longing I experienced over the course of several years, and had been saving up to let loose on what I consider my first proper full-length release as Wicca Phase," McIlwee told The Fader, who premiered the cut. "That longing — hopeless, selfish, melodramatic — has been resolved, and in its place is the will to move forward, take what is mine, and live unashamed of my desires. That is 'HARDCORE'." Hear it above, and see Wicca's upcoming itinerary below.
