We are very excited to share 'Stapler's Monster,' the latest single by Parting, an 'emo revivalist' supergroup consisting of Keith Latinen (Empire! Empire!), Ben Hendricks (Annabel), Gooey Fame (ex-Dowsing), and John Guynn (Hawk & Son). Anchored by the signature voices of Latinen and Hendricks playing off one another, Parting is the perfect combination of their past bands- upbeat, melodic, and driving. Think Knapsack meets The Get Up Kids. The band's debut release 'Unmake Me' will be out June 4 on Count Your Lucky Stars. You can pre-order it HERE.
"At the time we wrote this, we were planning on making a 7" and not a 10" and time was a major constraint," offers Latinen about the song. "By the time I wrote the vocals, I really felt like the ending needed to be extended to give the song some breathing room and to add layers to the song. We wanted to include everything from the same session on one release, but the amount of time now exceeded what a 7" could hold- we had written a song in the studio at the last minute and a song that was intended for a comp became available when the comp itself fell through. So we decided to bump the format up to a 10". Knowing this, we were able to edit the song with a longer outro. The extra room really gave life to the song and this song really helps vary the flow of the album."
