Song is an ode to Brendan Murphy's beloved pet

Revolver has teamed with Counterparts for an exclusive vinyl variant of their new album, A Eulogy for Those Still Here. Only 400 made — order yours now!

Counterparts have unveiled the second single off their upcoming seventh album, A Eulogy for Those Still Here — the Canuck metalcore veterans' first opus in three years — and it's a doozy. A gorgeously heavy fusion of post-rock atmosphere and hardcore pummel, "Whispers of Your Death" is a powerful, personal song about — wait for it — vocalist Brendan Murphy's cat.

"I feel like anyone who has been following the band/me pre-pandemic knew this was coming, but this song is about my cat Kuma," Murphy commented. "My ex and I rescued him just under two years ago and he is hands down the sole reason I stuck around long enough to even make this record. Shortly after he was rescued, we developed a special bond and now I can't imagine my life without him. Unfortunately in the first few months we had him, he became very sick and almost died due to complications of a blood parasite while being FIV positive. Nobody believed he would make it ... but luckily he is still here with us and currently doing great. Being his dad is hands down the most important thing I've ever done in my life and also what I am most proud of. I love him more than anything in the world and this song is my tribute to him for quite literally giving me a reason to live."

A Eulogy for Those Still Here is due on October 7th via Pure Noise, and Revolver has an exclusive "blood red" vinyl variant up for pre-order, limited to 400 copies. Snag yours before they're gone!
