Following successful tours with Counterparts and SeeYouSpaceCowboy, DYING WISH hunkered down in their native Portland, Oregon, to compose their debut full-length for SharpTone Records. As Brooklyn Vegan observed, "they do metalcore in a way that's darker and more menacing than a lot of their peers," and yet, "they could be the biggest band in the world when they let their [more melodic] side shine through." If the band summon the energy they've demonstrated at DIY festivals and shows up and down the West Coast, the album is destined to be a ripper. DYING WISH align themselves with the continuing battle for liberation, encompassing the issues affecting BIPOC, the environment, policing, and more intersectional causes while dealing in personal tribulation and trauma in equal measure. They make music aimed at unity but without compromise. Abolition, revolution, and liberation, in spirit and song, is the heart of DYING WISH.
