Blood & Ink Records’ Withered Bones has released the second single, “Shallow Roots,” from their debut album. The video, which originally premiered on AltPress, was shot by Thomas Helvenstine Visuals. The song comes from their December release, a nine-track, 30 minute album called For the Ones I Love.

Vocalist Ross Ullrich spoke about the song via press release:

“Some wounds take longer to heal than others, but we are at a stage in life where we won’t always have time to fully recover before facing another let down. This song is to remind anyone who has faced death, abandonment or insecurity to stay strong. Things will fall apart, and that’s okay.”

Withered Bones will hit the road in April with Castaway for a quick West Coast run on the No Comfort Tour.

On Tigerwine's latest, 'Nothing is for You,' vocalist and lyricist Trobee departs from the band's last effort as a concept record to write about an array subjects. Notably, Trobee tackles his evolution from rigid belief system to an acceptance and understanding of other ideas: "Through touring and becoming close with those very people I was taught to be afraid of, I realized how untrue it all is."

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
