Song: Burn Away
Band: The Birthday Massacre
Album: Invisible Monsters
Today’s Song of the Day comes to us by the Canadian synth-rock band, The Birthday Massacre. “Burn Away” is one of three new tracks off their new EP, Invisible Monsters.
The song begins by setting the scene with a catchy, biting guitar riff backed by the syth-pop-hard rock stylings that are reminiscent of some of the great bands from the 80’s. Taking center stage with her signature strong voice, lead singer Chibi goes on to tell the tale of love lost. The song would have been released earlier last year, but it wasn’t completed in time to be released on the band’s 2010 album Pins and Needles. We’re in luck that the track found its way to the latest EP release, which includes not just this song, but two other brand new tracks, along with remixes off the “Pins and Needles” release, from artists including Combichrist, Assemblage 23, Tweaker and Dave Ogilvie.
