Sydney metalcore quintet Harroway share their heaviest material yet with new single “Parasite“, which comes accompanied with news of the band’s debut EP, ‘I Don’t Want To Be Here Anymore‘, out Friday April 28.
Produced mixed and mastered by Mark Williamson at Keywork Audio (Inertia, Closure, After Touch), “Parasite” is the bands first release of 2023 and boasts devastating breakdowns, haunting vocal melodies and contrasting raw vocals. The track lyrically delves into the nature of Borderline Personality Disorder (BPD) and how living with the disorder can affect loved ones.
“Parasite reflects the violent internal chaos and self hate that comes from living with BPD and how it infects the people around you, even though you feel like you are protecting them by doing your best to keep it hidden,” explains vocalist Matt Banks.
The single is accompanied by an AI music video, streaming now via BVTV’s Youtube channel, created and conceptualised by Neck Up Collective (To The Grave, The Beautiful Monument, Honest Crooks) and visually represents the chaos within the music.
Following the release of Harroways upcoming EP ‘I Don’t Want To Be Here Anymore‘, the band will embark on a May headline tour in support of their mammoth release. The tour will visit Adelaide, Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane supported by post-hardcore group Alera, before Harroway round out their tour at Darwin’s TL – Two Festival with Make Them Suffer, Starve, Sedative, We Burn Bridges and more. Tickets on sale now.
Harroway is Matt Banks (vocals), Joshua Gemmal (guitar), Anthony Carnell (guitar), Jordan Sheriff (bass) and Jack Palmer (drums). The five-piece made an impression last year as they worked towards mastering their craft with the release of singles, “Sleep” and “Impluse“. Off the back of these, Harroway hit the ground running and locked in multiple tours across Australia’s east coast. 2022 saw the band launch into three east coast tours, one of which saw the band jump up as main support for Perth’s Patient Sixty-Seven on their ‘Wishful Thinking‘ album tour of Australia, where Wall of Sound coined Harroway: “One of the best new talents in the scene”.
The boys weren’t quite ready to round out the year there, adding multiple festival appearances to their resumé, including the Blue Mountains Winter Magic Revival Festival where they found themselves featuring on a lineup alongside mainstream artists such as Haiku Hands, Urthboy and Hermitude as well as fellow alternative bands Clay J Gladstone and Bare Bones. Harroway also joined Sydney’s In Peril Festival, where they shared the stage with Bloom, Belle Haven, Alt. and more.
Harroway have collated their strongest offerings to date on forthcoming EP, ‘I Don’t Want To Be Here Anymore’ and look towards an even bigger 2023. “Parasite” is available and streaming now on all platforms. ‘I Don’t Want To Be Here Anymore‘ will be available Friday April 28.
