THE NEW ALBUM THE CYCLES OF TRYING TO COPE ARRIVES MAY 10 VIA UNFD



U.S. metalcore act Like Moths To Flames previously announced their new album, The Cycles Of Trying To Cope. It arrives on May 10 via UNFD. Pre-order it here.


According to the band, "Blood leaves a stain that's often hard to remove, much like the scars that people leave when they're destructive with their life. This song is about someone who's destroyed everything they had left and being so parasitic with their life that it bleeds into the lives of others."

"The record encapsulates the varying emotions we go through when trying to grow through life," says Roetter. "Over the last few years, I've really tried to harness my emotions as a catalyst to get through whatever I was facing at the time. I think we all have our own unique ways of coping — these are mine. Just being able to write about this stuff and put it out into the world makes it feel like I'm not so alone."


The Cycles Of Trying To Cope album stands as an intense exploration of the Like Moths' musical arsenal, straddling the ugly and the beautiful in equal measure, whilst Roetter's raw introspection pierces the heart of every vicious breakdown or soaring chorus with cathartic power. The album is segmented into four chapters dubbed LIMBO, FRACTURE, DISSOCIATE, and MELANCHOLIA. Although not originally designed to be a concept album, Roetter's reflections on these diverse, complimentary, and contrasting facets of the band's latest opus revealed common threads that led the singer even deeper into his internal landscape, exploring the ways in which differing stages and aspects of the record were connected, evoking in Roetter thoughts of the terraces in Dante's Purgatory, and the "cycles" were given shape.


"A big focal point for Moths has always been writing about things I'm actively going through," Roetter details. "But when I realized that each song on the new album covers a unique approach I've had to a specific emotion, it felt like we needed something that could escort listeners through the record. It definitely helps it all feel cohesive and complete. Sometimes an album can just feel like a collection of songs, but I think this is more an experience for the band — I hope that people are able to find some solace in knowing someone else out there is dealing with these things too."
