“You're born into the world as a blank canvas. As you meet people and experience things, you’re getting stained and torn up.”
That’s the concept behind the new record from Vein.fm, This World Is Going To Ruin You. Recorded with grammy winning producer Will Putney of Graphic Nature Audio in April 2020, just weeks into a global shutdown, to create the bands latest twelve track full length album. Featuring guest appearances from artists Geoff Rickly, Jeff Smith and Bones, as well as the original artwork of Autumn Morgan, This World Is Going To Ruin You is a fully realized version of the bands darker and more disgusting inception of metallic hardcore.
While the bands 2018 full length debut Errorzone received praise from Pitchfork stating “sets the tone for one of the year’s most exhilarating heavy records.,” This World Is Going To Ruin You will be hailed as its own formidable beast. “Every release is like its own universe,” the band explains. “It has to do with the look and the feel. On Errorzone, it’s pretty obvious: Everything is very colorful and bright, and there's electronic drum and bass elements. If you listen to our material prior to that, it’s much darker and much more disgusting.”
In that sense, This World Is Going To Ruin You is not a return to the band’s roots so much as a more fully realized version of them. “With this album, the vibe was to tune lower, make it darker and more disgusting, to sort of go back to the origin point of Vein.fm and put it on blast,” vocalist Anthony DiDio explains. “But it’s not a nostalgia trip. We’re just taking that part of the band to its fullest potential.”
Lyrically, This World Is Going To Ruin You describes the human condition through a birth-to-death timeline. “I was coming from a very anti-social mentality,” DiDio explains. “There was a lot of feeling of being taken advantage of, so it’s like a wounded animal or a scared child getting revenge. The opening song is almost like instructions on how to listen to the record. It’s basically telling you to let go of everything. And then the next song, ‘Killing Womb,’ is a depiction of what the outside world is like.”
“I don’t really know what else I can get across that you can’t hear in the music,” DiDio concludes. “It’s in the artwork, it’s in the lyrics, it’s in the music. I want people to have their own experience with the album and everything that’s on it.”
Today, the band has shared the new track 'Fear in Non Fiction'. The song features Thursday singer Geoff Rickly. Listen here.
