A ghostly new video and single entitled “Weighted” has surfaced from Volumes after a period of quiet following the tragic passing of former guitarist Diego Farias. It’s the third new single following “Pixelate” and “Holywater” from the new line up of the band that is now fronted by their former vocalist Michael Barr alongside his replacement and former Bury Your Dead man Myke Terry, although who will be playing guitars for them live remains a mystery.
“This song is about self-doubt and the shortcomings that come with any type of success,” says singer Michael Barr, who returned to the lineup after a five-year absence this past spring. “It’s about the ups and the downs in life and the interpersonal and irrational conversation you have about convincing yourself into doing things.”
“It’s definitely a fun song,” says bassist Raad Soudani. “It’s a blend of heavy instrumentation with vibrant production with chunky guitar groove on the verse, with a playful vocal melody on top. It’s also got an in-your-face, aggressive catchy hook and a bit of a carefree, middle finger attitude to it.”
