On January 29, Trillionaire—featuring current and former members of Revocation, Inter Arma and KEN Mode—release their new album Romulus via Nefarious Industries. And today, the group has shared “Dead by 25,” a hard-driving track that punches hard with thunderous low-end, soaring vocals and lots of tense, taut, effects-heavy guitar riffs. It’s a heroic, urgent track that features sonic elements of both Failure and Daughters, but with an even more anthemic melodic core.
Vocalist Renee Fontaine says about the track, ““Madmen built these roads that twist at random like the corrosive veins in a deformity. Turn the headlights off so you don’t have to close your eyes. The object is to live fast and die slow. Die by twenty-five and you win.”
