Apparitions Releases New Song “She Dies At The End” From Debut Album Kiss Me Sleeping

After the successful premiere of “Mascara Queen” on Alternative Press, post-hardcore outfit Apparitions, who was formerly named This Twilight City, decided to give fans another taste of their forthcoming release by releasing the new song entitled “She Dies At The End.” The song, which is off the forthcoming Andrew Baylis (Camisado, Honour Crest, Provoke Destroy) produced Kiss Me Sleeping, may now be streamed onYouTube. In support of the upcoming album, Apparitions will be touring constantly in 2013 which will include a stop at the Outrage Festival this Saturday that will feature such bands as Flyleaf, The Red Jumpsuit Apparatus, Hawthorne Heights, and The Overseer among many others. Tickets for Outrage Festival are $45 for general admission and $80 for VIP and may be purchased at http://www.oilpalace.com.

Vocalist Alex Lee then briefly describes the album by stating, “Kiss Me Sleeping was an original idea for a band name before we agreed on Apparitions. It stands for times in my life I was at my absolute darkest. Like the real me was gone or sleeping rather. All the while there was always someone there who loved me unconditionally. The lyrics on the album are a definite 180 from the This Twilight City love songs. We are more aggressive, and that raw crazy sound needed some deeper lyrics from the darkest parts of me. It touches on my alcoholism, sexual appetite, my ‘Forget it moments’, and just things of that sort.”

Brandon Spearman commented deeper on the bands’ new sound, “We like to describe it as pop-metal, but in all honesty it is a bit deeper than that. We do have some metal and pop tendencies, but we also bring a bit of experimental, progressive and electronic styles to the table as well.” Brandon then continues by saying, “With the different styles of music we have mixed in that makes our sound, we would be able to fit in with groups like Chiodos, Coheed And Cambria, and Circa Survive.”
