Vatican release new double single, sign with UNFD
Savannah, Georgia metallic hardcore band Vatican have officially signed a deal with UNFD, label home to Silverstein, Erra, and Stray From The Path, among others. Today the quintet released a new double-single titled Become a New God, which features the songs "Fractured God" and "Absolute Reality." You can listen to both here: Vocalist Mike Sugars explains: "'Fractured God' is about questioning who you are, and what makes up your individuality," he explains. "Are we truly individuals, or are we products of ideals passed on from last generations? Do we have our own ideals or are we just vessels for those we inherited?" Regarding "Absolute Reality," Sugars says, "We talk about undeniable truths, and how hard they are to find. There's a constant flow of information and disinformation in the world today, and it flows at an ever-increasing rate. How can we possibly take all of this and use it to create real context in a technological landscape where this information is disseminated out to users who just chew it up and repeat it?" He finishes, "Become A New God, as a pairing of these songs, is trying to question what it is to be human in an increasingly complex world and time."
