Winnipeg-based Tunic released a new single Friday (which was promptly added to playlists on Spotify including Complete Chaos and New Punk Tracks!). The band wrote the following about the single’s release:
The song we are sharing with you today is an attempt at coping during an arduous situation. “Fade Out” was written about the co-owner of a venue in Winnipeg which I co-own and operate. His MS diagnosis caused him to lose sight in one eye, leading him to eventually leave his position. It was heartbreaking to watch and I can’t even begin to imagine what he felt going through this experience.
This song was written on tour at an Airbnb called The Creative Station in rural Massachusetts. It was essentially a large hippie den that reeked of patchouli run by a couple who would host concerts in the space. They didn’t mind the noise, which let us put the bones of this song and others together out there.
“Fade Out” shows the natural evolution of our sound, with a little more melody and traditional songwriting than our previous work. The lyrics, “I bury my face and cry” sum up the period of my life this song captures. It was so hard to watch this person I care about go through such a difficult time in his life. I did as much as I could to help him out, but at the end of the day after work I would go home and cry.
Thanks for spending time with this track,
