Nu metal band Sicksense just released a new song, “Feed Them To The Wolves” alongside a new video for the track.
This is of note because the band features Vicky “Killer V” Psarakis formerly of The Agonist, who recently broke up. Rob The Ripper of Stuck Mojo is also in the band. This is the second single from their forthcoming EP, Fools Tomorrow, which is out June 11.
Killer V says about the new song:
“‘Feed Them To The Wolves’ is a multifaceted song. The lyrics were written collaboratively between Rob and I, which led to that beautiful contrast.
“My inspiration and emotional connection to it came from my own life as a musician. Being in this industry, there’s this constant feeling that what you’re doing is never enough. From the music you’re creating to the content and interactions you have with others over social media, you’re often left feeling drained and your efforts unappreciated. In current times, people always crave more, and some fans develop these parasocial relationships in their minds that come with a strong sense of entitlement. You do one thing they don’t like; you’re criticized. You say one thing they don’t like; you’re crucified. You create music that’s different from what they’re used to; you’re abandoned.
“All these things can cripple you emotionally and make you feel like a puppet to your audience, as you’re always trying to appease them. However, the strings are imaginary. At the end of the day, what you choose to do should be your own decision. As long as you’re able to connect with and impact some people’s lives positively, what you’re doing is enough. Opening your arms to the world is a scary feeling, but every beautiful thing that comes with it is ultimately worth it.
“The songs across Fools Tomorrow deal with a lot of introspection and how we as individuals fit into this crazy world of ours. We take a raw, open, and honest approach with this EP and the music and stories take you on an emotional rollercoaster. We hope you enjoy being on this ride with us.”
You can also catch the band on at EP release shows at Turbo Haus in Montreal, Canada on June 9 and 10. Get tickets here.
