The band recently released their latest single Die 4 U, the first look at what the second EP in their intended four-part series will sound like. Talking about the song, Oli told Kerrang! it dealt with themes of addiction, and trying to break away from those things that are bad for you.
“A lot of older problems came back, and I kind of realised that there was a lot of stuff that I hadn’t worked on,” he explained. “When I went to rehab eight years ago, I came out of it and I felt like I was healed. I was like, ‘I’m good now,’ and we went and made Sempiternal. I kind of realised when everything stopped that I was so busy and things were going so well with the band and stuff that I was more… distracted than healed.
“[The song is] about toxic relationships, or old vices, or obsessions. The whole song is kind of written as if it’s a lover, or a relationship, and I’m talking to someone [and saying], ‘You’re so bad that I would die for you, but I will die for you. Because I’m so addicted. Even though I know this is no good for me, I will continue to do this to myself until I die.’ And to me, that was drugs and stuff. It’s trying to take a defiant stand and going, ‘This ends today, I’ll make a decision to stop that.’”
