Cursive share latest single "Botch Job" from upcoming LP "Devourer"

Cursive have shared their new single Botch Job, the propulsive opener of their forthcoming album, 'Devourer'. An ear-quaking, catchy banger that rips through its 2:47 runtime, the song is accompanied by a video from director Travis Stevens (A Wounded Fawn, Jakob’s Wife, Girl On The Third Floor); it’s the second in the band’s series of horror-themed clips following lead single Up and Away, directed by Brea Grant (12 Hour Shift, Torn Hearts). The new video and single can be streamed below.

“‘Botch Job’ is a rumination on what one has done with this life and those unfulfilling feelings that may accompany such thoughts. At this point, I don’t care to know what damage my body has incurred from years of abuse,” explains singer/guitarist Tim Kasher. “It’s those anxiety-fueled gremlins keeping you restless in the dead of night, but put to song". 'Devourer', out September 13th via Run For Cover Records and Cooking Vinyl Australia, is now available for preorder.
