On November 3rd, Portland's Dying Wish will give way to highly anticipated new album, Symptoms of Survival, via SharpTone Records. Adorned by the artwork of Paul Romano, Symptoms of Survival makes a strong entry into its release cycle with a cover illustration that reflects the vulnerability present throughout the record, matching the extreme sense of urgency and power present in lead single, Watch My Promise Die.

Frontwoman Emma Boster comments on the single:

"'Watch My Promise Die' is written about the overwhelming anxiety of pre-destined failure. When you commit everything you have to one area of your life, the idea of it falling apart looms with such heavy importance. The song is written from the perspective of toying with that fear, allowing your weakness to overcome before you lose everything in a means outside of your control."

She continues:

"Symptoms of Survival is an eleven-part piece covering the complexity of human suffering in all forms. From the honest and personal perspective of heartbreak, painful trauma, loss, rage, and regret — to the more objective perspective of war, greed, and ultimate survival."

Stream Watch My Promise Die below and pre-order the LP via SharpTone.
