Following Constant Dread and the record’s title track, Thunder In Our Hearts serves as the third preview of the band’s eighth studio album, due out digitally on September 10 through Pure Noise Records, with physical formats following on October 22.
Unfurling around soaring guitar melodies, the catchy track’s emotional lyrics were influenced by panic attacks frontman JT Woodruff experienced while writing the LP. He said:
“During the Rain Sessions I developed panic attacks that kept me up until 4am every night, and I just couldn’t shake them. So most nights, I was laying in the bed shaking til 4am, then waking up at 7am to get ready for the recording session. Every night, my heart felt like it was going to explode, and there were moments that truly scared me. During one of my shakedowns, I wrote these lyrics about how the darkness that I feel always happens between the nightmare and the dream, and it just seemed to hit right. It all started to make sense. I needed to be home. I wanted to be home. But I just couldn’t get there.”
