Cursive Shares New Track "It's Gonna Hurt"

Cursive shares their new song today, “It’s Gonna Hurt,” the third and final early single from their forthcoming new album, Vitriola. Of the moody, foreboding track — a heady mix of angular guitars, haunting cello and synths, pulsating bass, and forceful drums — singer/guitarist Tim Kasher says, “This song is about watching those closest to you as they seem to deliberately self-destruct. How we find it hard to forgive them for it, but also how we carry the blame for it.”  Vitriola marks the band’s first new album since 2012, as well as their debut release on their own label, 15 Passenger, and will arrive in stores next Friday, October 5th.
Vitriola reunites Kasher, guitarist/singer Ted Stevens and bassist Matt Maginn with founding drummer Clint Schnase — also for the first time since Happy Hollow. They’re joined by Patrick Newbery on keys (who’s been a full-time member for years) and touring mainstay Megan Siebe on cello. Schnase and Maginn are in rare form, picking up right where they left off with a rhythmic lockstep of viscera-vibrating bass and toms, providing a foundation for Kasher and Stevens’ intertwining guitars and Newbery and Siebe’s cinematic flourishes. Sonically, Vitriola runs the gamut between rich, resonant melodicism, Hitchcockian anxiety, and powerful dynamics — and no Cursive album would be complete without scream-along lyrics that make for unlikely anthems.
After the album’s release, the band is set to hit the road for an extensive tour with bands Meat Wave and Campdogzz supporting. Dates for the tour are listed below.
