Foxfires (hardcore) debut new song “Wanderlust Curse” off upcoming album “Pinetum”

Worcester, Mass.-based hardcore outfit Foxfires, featuring former Four Year Strong member Josh Lyford, are now streaming a new song, “Wanderlust Curse,” off their debut full length album titled Pinetum. Lyford explained the meaning of the song:

“‘Wanderlust Curse’ is about falling into those ruts in life and having to scrape your way back out, or stay to rot and die. It was kind of an observation I had; I was pretty sure about who I was and what I represented throughout my youth. I had problems, just like anyone else, but at the end of the day I always knew where I stood. As the years go by and there are a number of outside influences—relationships, jobs, different responsibilities and loss—you can lose some of that in the shuffle. It’s all a roller coaster, juggling the stark truth of reality against that personal need for growth and change. You almost need a foot on the rat-race mouse wheel to survive, but you don’t want to fall in and completely lose yourself.”

Give “Wanderlust Curse” a listen below.

The new album is slated for release in October via Escapist Records and will serve as a follow up to 2013’s EP, The Golden Age.
