Counterpunch Releases New Song “Judgement Day”
- Chicago-based melodic punk rock band Counterpunch, consisting of Eric Hausser (vocals/guitar), Jim Margle (drums), Kyle Tilev (guitar), and Jared Rohde (bass), released a new song “Judgement Day” from their upcoming fourth studio album “Rewire”.
The song is the third single off of the album, following “Rewire” and “Waiting in the Wings”.
It was written by Eric Hausser, Jim Margle, Kyle Tilev, and Jared Rohde. Produced by Chris Fogal and Counterpunch.
Jared Rohde said of the song, “So when I was writing this song I had sort of a comic book fantasy of what this song would look like and then what actually drove the lyrics. It was something along the lines of a god figure showing up to see what it's creation has become. Disappointed, the being is trying to decide if it's time to hit the reset button. Lyrically I wrote this song based on the observations of how folks engage on social media. Wake up, log on and start judging. What that process does to one's self and how that same place we use to promote and explore is also being used to blame, manipulate and ostracize. The lyrics describe how that world drains on me mentally. “Defeated, beaten, broken and disturbed.” Asking myself over and over “who will save you now from yourself?” I'm trying to highlight the inner struggle to stay plugged in, or remove myself from that world altogether.”
In 2019, the band record the new album with producer Chris Fogal at Black in Bluhm studios in Denver just before COVID shut down the world.
The album comprises 12-track and is set to be released on June 17, 2022 via Thousand Islands Records and SBAM.
