Pennsylvania quartet Execution Day have arrived with the release of their latest EP Illusions along with a music video for the single “Lost at Sea (Castaway).” The fervent track blends all the fury of modern metalcore with a massive radio-friendly hook that offers a glimpse of the new record.
Elsewhere on the new EP is the track “Anti-Venom,” featuring Justin “JD” DeBlieck of Ice Nine Kills and the record’s first single, the arena-ready anthem “Woe.”
“The writing process was the hardest to date,” says vocalist Dylan Dively. “We really wanted to capture something special and hit some heavier topics for us as individuals. We really dug deep lyrically to come up with the most personal EXD songs to date.”
Founded in 2016, Execution Day has been tirelessly pushing, touring and creating new music. Their debut EP From the Bottom of my Heart was released in 2017 and established the band as one of Pittsburgh’s premier metalcore acts. Following that release, they hit the road, touring across the Midwest and playing with acts such as, Falling in Reverse, The Plot in You, Like Moths to Flames and many more.
Illusions is available now on Spotify.
