Several weeks after confirming a new album with its first single, Blessthefall have returned with another new song from the record. On Wednesday (Feb. 14), the Arizona-founded band unleashed “Wishful Sinking,” the second single off their upcoming album, Hard Feelings.
“‘Wishful Sinking’ is one of the first songs we wrote for this album,” frontman Beau Bokan explains about the new song. “It’s got all the familiar Blessthefall vibes that any old school fan will recognize immediately. We wanted to do what we do best while finding a fresh sound. I think it’s one of the more dynamic songs vocally and musically. It takes you on a ride that ignites the whole album.”

“Wishful Sinking” will join previously released single “Melodramatic” on the band’s impending new album, Hard Feelings. Hard Feelings is set to be released on March 23 through Rise Records. Pre-orders for the new album can be found on the band’s website.
Last month, Blessthefall confirmed the release of their sixth studio album as well as their decision to leave their longtime home of Fearless Records for Rise Records. According to an interview back in January, Bokan admitted that signing with Rise Records helped rejuvenate the band that has been in the music business for nine years and five studio albums.
In support of the new album’s release, Blessthefall are currently on tour with Of Mice and Men, Cane Hill, and Fire from the Gods. Tonight, the bands will perform at the Corona Theatre in Montreal, Quebec. The complete list of remaining tour dates can be found here.
