Glass Cloud Premiere “How To Survive Suicide”

Glass Cloud

Glass Cloud recently announced that they will be releasing an EP later this month via their record label, Equal Vision Records. The EP is titled Perfect War Forever, and it’s set to hit stores October 22. The band premiered their first single, “Trapped Like Rats” around the end of September, and now we have a second track available for streaming. The next single is titled “How To Survive Suicide,” and it’s available to be streamed at Alternative Press’ website.

Travis Sykes, the bassist in the group, is also the songwriter and here’s a snippet of what he had to say about the meaning behind “How To Survive Suicide.” Read the entire comment below the jump.

‘How To Survive Suicide’ comes right after the song ‘I Dug A Grave,’ which is an internal conversation between my own good and bad side. The last lyrics in that song are “you’re fucking dead to me” and then “How To Survive Suicide” is painting the picture of what it would be like if I let my own good side win that battle (the song ‘Soul Is Dead’ is what happens when the bad side wins).

For me, the message of the song is trying to see the things that flourish for you when you drown out the negativity and play into the most fulfilling parts of your life. That’s essentially what I took away from my writing when I finished the EP. After we flipped our van, I just got into that mindset. I had to write something that really took a deep look inside and pulled out all the bullshit so that I could deal with it and grow from it. And I know I’m not the only one who deals with these things, so it’s nice to be able to share this work with people.
