While Cardinals Pride last left us with their Those People Will Never Die EP, the Quebec noisemakers are returning with a new full-length. Titled The Quiet Erosion, the album is set to arrive on November 10 via New Damage, and you can get a taste of it all with the new track "Marrow."
The Quiet Erosion marks the first Cardinals Pride album since 2016's Priorities. For the band's latest, they enlisted producer Cameron McLellan (Protest the Hero) and the drums were engineered by Dean Hadjichristou at All Buttons In Studio in Ottawa.
For a taste of what they all cooked up, you can check out the album's first single "Marrow," which has arrived via a new video.
In a statement to Exclaim!, the band's Alex Pare had this to say about the track:
"Marrow" is one of the first songs we wrote on The Quiet Erosion and we're so happy to finally release it. It's a song that has changed a lot since its first draft and I feel like going through those rearrangements has helped us refine our songwriting for the album.
As for the lyrics, "Marrow" is about refusing to shut it down when it comes to issues that matter to me. For a long time, I tried to avoid fights and arguments with my friends, coworkers and family. However, at one point I realized that remaining silent when consistently disagreeing with someone made me feel terribly miserable inside. Speaking up will sometime make it more tense between you and your surroundings, but it's worth it if you truly want things to change.
Watch the premiere of the video for "Marrow" below, where you'll also find the album's tracklist and the group's upcoming tour dates.
