Ontario-based metalcore heavyweights Counterparts have shared new single & video for “Whispers of Your Death” from their forthcoming album “A Eulogy For Those Still Here” due out October 7th from Pure Noise Records. The song is a powerful, heavy and melodic, emotionally charged anthem with a touching lyrical theme of owning & almost losing a pet, something that’s not often touched on in music. 

Vocalist Brendan Murphy discussed the new song saying: “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. My ex and I rescued him just under 2 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. 07/26/2020.”

The music video fittingly stars Brendan’s cat Kuma, you watch it here:
