Only Crime have released another cut from their upcoming record, and things get a little weird on this one.
The punk supergroup -- comprised of Russ Rankin of Good Riddance, Aaron Dalbec of Bane, Bill Stevenson of Descendents, All, and Black Flag, Matt Hoffman of Modern Life Is War, and Dan Kelly of Frisk -- are releasing a new record called Pursuance, and while the previously heard singles are solid examples of melodic punk, the band went old school for "No Truth In Love." With wrist-snapping rhythm changes, dissonant guitar riffs, and Rankin's barking vocals, the bulk of this track would be much more at home in the '80s hardcore scene. It's not their typical style, but these guys can mix it up and nail it.
Only Crime "No Truth In Love" Lyrics:
A blessed cold to rest, infirmed.
The veil is lost, there is no shelter.
Feel it rise out there, just beyond where our traps are disengaged.
Like things we love are incomplete, and thus we fall, we fall away.
A fading light, one bleeding tide.
Hold tight while we begin.
Burn the ink into my skin.
No light shines in my heart, in my heart.
Sick souls, we climb above.
There's no more truth in love.
When you let me go, who can I trust?
My darkest fears now broken free.
As life distends, they gather round me.
We burned away and all the rest is gone.
So much time's now forced away.
Cautious words, all we can say.
This is where it all begins.
Nothing left of what I've seen, just the spaces in between.
Live, just let it go.
Like a severed frame, my time is lost.
Give me one more chance to look inside my heart.
Just one more chance to look inside my heart, and just let it go.
