Toronto-based metalcore band The Parallel released their new single “Who I’ve Become” and its music video. The track was recorded by Nick Ingram (Hawthorne Heights/Convictions) at Capital House Studio and produced, mixed, and mastered by Leo of Jim Bloom Recordings (Brand of Sacrifice).
About the single, the band stated:
“This track focuses around the topics of internal trial & error; the understanding that it’s okay to feel anxious and show your emotions, and it’s okay to stand up for yourself in circumstances you don’t feel like you deserve.”
After the release and critical acclaim of the band’s album ‘Weaver’ in 2018 on InVogue Records, which debuted at #40 on Billboard’s Current Hard Music Chart, they are back and stronger than ever. Their new single “Who I’ve Become” marks a turning point in the band’s life, now operating independently and completely rebranding to further build the already established fanbase and direction they have accumulated over years of work.
The new single is a new and more powerful take on the band’s unique sound, featuring melodic hooks and a chorus that embodies the essence of commercial and modern metal music. The track thematically revolves around themes of insecurity and growth and is mixed with a crushing progressive edge.
“Who I’ve Become” marks the first single toward The Parallel’s upcoming record that’s due out in mid to late 2020.
