Make Them Suffer premiere new song ft. Spiritbox singer

Australian metal ensemble Make Them Suffer have shared a new track called "Contraband," which features guest vocals from Spiritbox singer Courtney LaPlante. This is the first time Make Them Suffer has utilized a guest vocalist. The song's Jackson Bentley-directed video can be viewed here: "'Contraband' came together centered around one of the riffs in the song that we'd aptly named the 'floppy fingers' riff," says vocalist Sean Harmanis. "We'd actually had this [riff] in the bank since way back in 2016. As the song came together, we decided that it was a great opportunity to include Make Them Suffer's first-ever guest feature, and we couldn't have picked anyone better than Courtney! She was a joy to work with and showed such a great enthusiasm toward the song and her parts." "Lyrically, the song is about everything and nothing at the same time. It's about relationships with friends and family. But it's also a low-key political song, as well as an expression of the frustrations surrounding COVID and its impact on our lives, particularly as members of the music community." Harmanis finishes, "'Contraband' is a build up — the result of two years without musical catharsis."
