Singled Out: Long Beach Vagrant's Within

John Aragonez of Long Beach Vagrant tells us the story behind their new single "Within" which will also be featured on the metal group's forthcoming album "Death Be Thy Name." Here is the story:

We are Long Beach Vagrant a horror metalcore band based out of So. Cal. The song we have chosen for your listening dismemberment is entitled "Within". This song sums up what this band is all about musically and lyrically.

The material is dark and fast in nature and the lyrics tell the story of the darkness that surrounds us in our everyday lives. The evil inside you, the evil "Within" us all and what you choose to do with it. Take a look at the headlines these days, there are some depraved, hateful and malevolent motherf***ers on this planet. As a band we are not afraid to write about or broach these subjects. Life is a hundred times worse than any horror movie that exists today.

So while the sheep are Instagraming or Facebooking what they had for dinner last night, we are on a stage somewhere screaming at the top of our lungs that the wings of mayhem are always lurking. When the Grim Reaper sits at the table of life and deals the cards you hope your not holding aces and eights. And even though the message is a dark one, in the end there is a positive light from the shadows.

We feel by expressing this through our music that it will help lift or inspire someone going through something f***ed up or horrific. There is real power in music, it's an escape from the madness, we see it every time we take the stage. Keep an eye out for the new album coming out this spring " Death Be Thy Name".

Hearing is believing. Now that you know the story behind the song, listen for yourself here and learn more about the band right here!
