Pallbearer unveil new song and video

Little Rock, Arkansas doom metal Pallbearer have shared "The Quicksand of Existing," the latest single from the band's forthcoming album, Forgotten Days (Oct. 23, Nuclear Blast). The song arrives via another Ben Meredith-directed video, available below. "As we strive to be, the forces of entropy perpetually pull us down into a state of being unmade," says bass player and songwriter Joseph D. Rowland of the track. "The body degrades; the mind and memories fray into unwoven threads, no longer connected to the rich fabric of the self. Choices made upon our separate and conjoined paths may find us engulfed in a mire of our unmaking. I wanted this song to face this reality with a grim determination."
