Everyone’s had those days, when you feel like the whole world is against you and everything you touch turns to shit. For Alabama metallic hardcore crew Gideon, a slew of such days in 2016 inspired the lyrical content of “Cursed,” which we're exclusively premiering off of their upcoming album, Cold.
“This song is about bad luck. We went through a streak where it literally felt like everything we did went wrong, and anyone we came into contact with experienced bad things,” says drummer/lyricist Jake Smelley. “We had a van get robbed at our guitarist [Tyler Riley’s] house, and we had a van also get robbed at our singer [Daniel McWhorter’s] house, and at the same time tons of things were going wrong in our personal lives. Then we went on tour, and we had about $8,000 worth of stuff stolen from us in California, and in the same week we headed into Canada and totaled our van! When all of that happens, you feel like a black cat, in a way, and you almost don’t want to be around anyone in case it rubs off on them, too.” -- AP
