Conform released this statement about the new single’s meaning:
“Although Blood Eagle is wide open for personal interpretation and littered with jabs at various things we despise, the roots of the single’s initial theme stems from our love of the show “Vikings”. We noticed how the main character becomes increasingly frustrated with being stranded in one location and related that to our own frustrations and the excuses we make for not progressing forward in our own lives. Lying to ourselves to remain comfortable.”
With Conform’s innovative approach to song writing paired with their strong, self-driven work ethic, they will be breaking new grounds and honing their sound with their upcoming release. Conform have played alongside international and national heavyweights such as Being as an Ocean, Protest the Hero, Make Them Suffer, Saviour, Justice for the Damned, Ocean Grove, Polaris and more.
Conform’s debut album ‘Circa 94’ will be live for pre-order this Friday April 13, for release on Friday May 18. The single Blood Eagle will be out on Spotify and streaming services from this Friday April 13.
