Northwest Ohio-based band The Casket Company will be releasing their new single “Battle Axe” on May 16th. Currently available for pre-save, the track was written during a state of heavy heartbreak to which many can relate.
About the single, vocalist/guitarist Alex Baird stated:
“The song was written when I was super fresh out of a breakup. When I recorded it, I hadn’t slept in two days. I had just been awake and extremely upset. I pretty much wanted to put it all out there very blatantly about how I was lied to and very suddenly thrown away by someone who promised they loved me.”
Written by vocalist/guitarist Alex Baird, the new track “Battle Axe” was recorded at The Mohawk Studio in Sandusky, Ohio. It was self-produced, engineered, mixed, and mastered by the band’s bassist Shawn Daley and vocalist/guitarist Alex Baird.
The band is a powerhouse that will push your boundaries and not let up. Heavily influenced by grunge and prog, the music is a hard-hitting vessel for the lyrical assault that comes after. Their songs run the gamut emotionally and take your mood on a roller coaster with a raw, almost shameless delivery. With Bruce Vermett’s impeccably dynamic drums, Shawn Daley’s heavy and grinding bass and Alex Baird’s howling, breathing guitar, The Casket Company’s live show and albums are a testament to life and loss in the Rust Belt.
