The Dead Rabbits—Craig Mabbitt and TJ Bell of Escape The Fate’s side project—have released their first new song since their debut album Shapeshifter came out in 2014.

Mabbitt opened up about the meaing behind the new track titled “Dead Again.” “This song is a reflection of myself, and the foolish ways I cope with pain,” Mabbitt shares. “I realized that consuming substances for the wrong reasons can send you on a downward spiral, and no matter what you do, it will still hurt the same. Just gotta learn how to pick yourself up and end that cycle.”

“Dead Again” is the first single off the upcoming album This Emptiness, which will be released this year via Tragic Hero Records. It will be available for preorder February 14.
