Cursive new album 2018

Cursive are returning this year with a new album. On October 5, the band will release Vitriola via their own label, Passenger. The first single from the album is titled “Life Savings,” and it’s a searing post-hardcore anthem about how money ruins us. It also features guest vocals from Jess Price of Campdogzz. NPR premiered the track this morning with an interview with frontman Tim Kasher about writing this album and their new track.

“I was really wanting to go back to that raw emotional feeling that I used to get, how I wrote the first couple Cursive records when I was a younger man,” Kasher says to NPR. “I would suggest that that was a little bit easier this time, with so much avarice and bile that we were all experiencing. [It] felt natural for me to just go with that.”
