“You're born into the world as a blank canvas. As you meet people and experience things, you’re getting stained and torn up.”
That’s the concept behind the new record fromVein.fm,This World Is Going To Ruin You. Recorded with grammy winning producer Will Putney of Graphic Nature Audio in April 2020, just weeks into a global shutdown, to create the bands latest twelve track full length album. Featuring guest appearances from artists Geoff Rickly, Jeff Smith and Bones, as well as the original artwork of Autumn Morgan,This World Is Going To Ruin You is a fully realized version of the bands darker and more disgusting inception of metallic hardcore.
While the bands 2018 full length debutErrorzonereceived praise from Pitchfork stating “sets the tone for one of the year’s most exhilarating heavy records.,”This World Is Going To Ruin Youwill be hailed as its own formidable beast. “With this album, the vibe was to tune lower, make it darker and more disgusting, to sort of go back to the origin point ofVein.fmand put it on blast,” vocalist Anthony DiDio explains. “But it’s not a nostalgia trip. We’re just taking that part of the band to its fullest potential.”
Lyrically,This World Is Going To RuinYoudescribes the human condition through a birth-to-death timeline. “I was coming from a very anti-social mentality,” DiDio explains. “There was a lot of feeling of being taken advantage of, so it’s like a wounded animal or a scared child getting revenge. The opening song is almost like instructions on how to listen to the record. It’s basically telling you to let go of everything. And then the next song, ‘Killing Womb,’ is a depiction of what the outside world is like.”
“I don’t really know what else I can get across that you can’t hear in the music,” DiDio concludes. “It’s in the artwork, it’s in the lyrics, it’s in the music. I want people to have their own experience with the album and everything that’s on it.”
