Canadian heavyweights Counterparts have dropped their latest single, Whispers Of Your Death, which will appear on their forthcoming record, A Eulogy For Those Still Here. Stepping up their sound, the new track sees the band cranking up their relentless riffs and thrashing drums to new extremes.

Vocalist Brendan Murphy discusses the intimate meaning behind Counterparts’ new song, saying: "I feel like anyone who has been following the band/me pre-pandemic knew this was coming, but this song is about my cat Kuma. My ex and I rescued him just under two years ago and he is hands down the sole reason I stuck around long enough to even make this record. Shortly after he was rescued, we developed a special bond and now I can’t imagine my life without him.

“Unfortunately in the first few months we had him, he became very sick and almost died due to complications of a blood parasite while being FIV positive. Nobody believed he would make it… but luckily he is still here with us and currently doing great. Being his dad is hands down the most important thing I’ve ever done in my life and also what I am most proud of. I love him more than anything in the world and this song is my tribute to him for quite literally giving me a reason to live."
