Through years of embracing honesty and channeling hardships into expression, alternative rock band TO KILL ACHILLES begins their next chapter, “Recovery,” due for release on August 11th via Arising Empire.

Today, the band releases their new music video off the track ‘Chemical Counterpart’ from this new upcoming milestone, “Recovery.” 

“I remember when I used to feel, but now the grey consumes the day. And it’s not like I’m in pain, I just don’t remember how to care, I think I lost my heart, to a chemical counterpart, and how I crave a restart, before this tears me apart.”

Consisting of 11 tracks, the sound of “Recovery” is delivered through sincere lyrics depicting real-life experiences with the same ferocity we’ve come to expect. The music is a mixture of aggression, sadness, hope, and beauty, with soaring choruses that beg for inclusion and tear-jerking storytelling that promotes the journey toward positivity.

“This record is the antithesis of the last; for far too long, we’ve told the story of mental degradation without hope. Becoming completely drained, repeating the same lines of how it hurts to be here, ‘Recovery’ deals with courage, control, acceptance, and ultimately the end goal that anyone in this circumstance seeks… the other side. This record is the journey of getting better, taking control of your life and the experiences around you.”

“Recovery” will be available as CD and limited colored vinyl, together with special merch options at the band and Arising Empire Shop, here.
