Premiere: Vilify - Take The Pill

Premiere: Vilify - Take The Pill

Check out the crushingly heavy new single & music video from Mulubinba/Newcastle-based four-piece a day ahead of release

Following a string of singles last year, alt-metal four-piece Vilify are here to make their mark on 2023 with blistering new single Take The Pill, which alongside its intense warehouse-set music video are premiering on Pilerats today ahead of their February 24 release!

Truly putting the metal in metalcore and favouring the extreme side of things over the “melodic”, Take The Pill is four minutes of groove-laden heavy goodness, packing plenty of big distorted guitar hooks, a thumping rhythm section and the ferocity of singer Amy McIntosh’s captivating vocals… and a big, weighty breakdown for good measure, of course.

On the meaning behind their new single, Vilify said "This song is about the battle of balance between SSRIs, depression and drive. Finding the balance between what makes you feel alive but what keeps you sane. It's about accepting different points in life that call for different plans of attack. What worked for you once might not work next time and that is ok. Always striving to be better is what's important even if it feels unattainable at times.”

The video for Take The Pill was filmed, directed and edited by Joel Black (Tommirock), full of quick cuts that capture the band’s energy and passion. “We did something super unheard of and did a band playthrough in a warehouse,” the band comments. “Had to be done. There is no concept except showing people that we can dance like queens while we play the heavies.”

Take The Pill today before it drops everywhere tomorrow!
