Take a listen to Stray from the Path’s new track “Prey” below. The song, which features a guest appearance from Norma Jean vocalist Cory Brandan, will appear on the band’s new album, ‘Rising Sun,’ set for release on August 30 in the US and one day earlier in the UK via Sumerian Records.
Speaking with Rock Sound, guitarist Tom Williams explained, “We got the inspiration from the song looking at the bands that claim to be part of the Christian hardcore/metalcore scene. The bands that we meet, bands that we see, bands that we hear all claim to be part of this thing and it looks like they are just using their religion for financial gain. It pissed us off as it is manipulating people. The song actually branches out to more than just bands, it’s about people who use religion in any way to make money out of others.”
