THECITYISOURS are heading out on tour this October as well as releasing a new single ‘Veins’ to the public.
Veins is a very natural progression from previous tracks from THECITYISOURS. As it was the first song written following our ‘Hollow Hope’ EP, it still has the overall vibe people have come to know and love, catchy hooks mixed with dirty breakdowns, but it’s definitely got more of a mature feel with darker themes and lyrical content, exploring some of our most challenging experiences as people. In essence, the gloves have come off, with our new material. We chose to stick to our guns and write exactly what and how we felt at the time, which set a precedent for the the band as a whole moving forward.
It’s a very personal track, written around themes of loss and death, and the emotional journey that inevitably comes with it. We chose to pay homage to one of our earlier releases and write Veins as a response to the message in that track. The lyrics are taken from the viewpoint of the person preparing to leave everything they’ve ever known behind and the various emotional stages that individual may experience. The track journeys from fear, to acceptance and everything in between”

Spending the majority of 2018 recording, this new single is just a taste of new things to come.
“We’ve spent a long time in the shadows of the UK music scene, building almost everything we have achieved to date by ourselves, with the support of our exceptional fan base. We have always been a band that has got our hands dirty and stuck by our incredibly loyal fan base, but we are confident that these songs have just what it takes to pull us onto the next level”
– Mikey Page (Guitar)
