River Black has premiered their new song today. You can check out the stream for their song “#Victim” below. The song is from the band’s upcoming new self-titled album River Black which is due out on July 7th via Season of Mist.
The band has the following to say about the song:
“This song was inspired by some individuals who latch on to the misfortune of others and try to claim it as their own; vicarious victims who are so addicted to drama and self-loathing that they gravitate towards any tragedy and make it a part of their identity, hence the hashtag.
This first-world problem is the height of privilege and it speaks to a larger problem of intentional victimhood in American society, where too often we pre-empt problems that are not ours with solutions we don’t need; solutions which are rooted in a corrupt health care system more committed to profitable treatments than good health or personal growth.”
