Teardown – New Single/Lyric Video For “Haunting Circle”

Austrian metallers from TEARDOWN set January 2022 as international release date for their debut EP!

Today the band released their second Single/Lyric Video for “Haunting Circle”, which is available on all major streaming platforms (e.g. Spotify, Amazon Music, Youtube) and can be found here: https://distrokid.com/hyperfollow/teardown/haunting-circle

“Haunting Circle” is a faster paced and shorter track of the upcoming EP.

About “Haunting Circle”:
“The song is about a person who is overwhelmed by life itself and has difficulty dealing with daily challenges, while being at the lowest point this person can mentally be. Like being in a circle where you cant get out.

But just as there is an absolute low, there are also highs, and those highs have to be enough to get through it all, even if it seems hopeless and impossible at first, sometimes it’s the only chance to get through it all.

This lyrics should show that we never know how even the smallest thing can affect a person. Not everyone deals with certain problems in the same way and certainly not everyone is strong enough to overcome these situations on their own.”

They say that the best way to create space for the new is to dismantle the old. This sentiment rings true for Austrian metal band Teardown, who collectively use music as a pressure release valve to escape from the social constructs of what passes as “acceptable”.

Consisting of founding members Dominik Windisch and Nikolaus Rothmund (guitarists), they have now been joined by Barbaros Teker (vocalist) and Markus Winkler (bassist). After the recordings of the EP drummer Mathias Unterberger had to leave the band due to a lack of time because of personal changes. Having all grown up in Vorarlberg, a region where metal remains a largely underground endeavour, the band offers a place of complete escapism for each member and is reflected in the passion they portray throughout their music.

Influenced by the likes of Metallica, Iron Maiden, Trivium, Linkin Park, and Gojira, Teardown’s eclectic approach to metal has resulted in diverse and distinguishable pieces of music that offer moments of familiarity as well as splashes of surprise. Energetic, aggressive, and high-octane verses effortlessly are contrasted with supporting choruses and rugged instrumental segments, all of which glue together to form an undeniable sense of groove. Lyrically, Teardown’s songs deal with both social and personal topics, always leaving room for interpretation from a listening perspective.

With live music adding an element that guarantees a further intensification of the band’s emotion, Teardown are now intent on sharing their latest material with the world.

2021 is shaping up to be a big year for Teardown, with the release of their Debut Single and the following  ‘Teardown EP’ release in Q1 of 2022, which will also feature a collaboration with local rap artist Jherip.
