Last month, Florida-based post hardcore act LIMBS unleashed their new single ‘Empty Vessel’ alongside a fresh lineup, and are backing it up today with their latest effort ‘I Used To Be You’.

After catching the attention of media giants including Brooklyn Vegan, Revolver, Metal Insider and more on previous outputs, today’s single comes following a premiere team up with Outburn Magazinehere.

Introspective and hard-hitting, ‘I Used To Be You’ was written as a reflection of vocalist Austin McAuley‘s past, riddled with toxic relationships, substance abuse and his struggling to cope with the loss of his father. He adds:

“The song is an introspective look into the person I became when life was at its darkest, but narrates how I was able to overcome adversity and better myself, for my own sake and those around me. The driving force behind this story of rebirth is the memory of my father, his voice in my head telling me not to give up, to never stop fighting (see the lyrics “For all that I’ve seen, as long as you stayed…I can’t be afraid to live up to your name.”)

“Because of him, forever living through me, I embraced defeat and uncertainty, recognising who I once was and striving to better myself by all means necessary.”

In 2018 LIMBS found a home with UNFD ahead of the release of their debut album Father’s Son – a dark and brooding look at a young man’s journey out of religion as he comes to terms with both his upbringing and his own actions. A conceptual album following a young man breaking free from his indoctrinated upbringing, Father’s Son explores the strength in reclaiming your own life.

LIMBS’ live video for their album’s title track, ‘Father’s Son’, was filmed during the band’s 2018 tour with UnderoathDance Gavin Dance, and Veil Of Maya. Streaming here, the video captures the electricity and raw power of a LIMBS live show – from headbanging to epic stage dives and beyond. Fans have been able to experience it in person as the band has shared the stage over the years alongside the likes of BeartoothMotionless In White, Sharptooth, WristmeetrazorStick To Your Guns and more.

Last year, LIMBS announced that longtime friend Austin McAuley would be stepping into the role of lead vocalist. McAuley debuted with LIMBS at the end of 2018 while on tour with Currents, giving fans a taste of his energy and passion before bringing it into the studio for new music.

McAuley first appeared on Abandoned, a hard-hitting track that originally premiered on Metal Injection, and on vicious follow up single ‘Stare‘.
