Famined Records’ newest signing, Belgium’s metal/hardcore outfit Strains, has just released their new single off their forthcoming label debut entitled “Redefine[d]”.
“White Chains” is off the Aljoscha Sieg-recorded EP that will be released June 30th with vocalist Maarten Janssen commenting, “We took our time to get the best out of this first EP and are more than happy with the record we’ve been able to create.”
Maarten continued by revealing, “In 2007 I suffered from an accident that put me in the hospital in complete isolation for several months, undergoing over 10 surgeries. This accident changed everything I stood for and knew of life at that point. Every track of Redefine[d] tells a part of my story starting at how I now look at the life I led before the accident to today where I analyze the whole process I underwent and my look at the future. Although the lyrics are quite personal, I still feel they’re abstract enough for other people to relate to the daily struggles that changed me as a person in every aspect.”
During 2015, the band is planning to hit the road on two separate tours during the summer. In July Strains will be hitting venues all over Europe before focusing just on the UK in September with details and further plans releasing next week on both tours.
