San Jose CA’s Roman Lions includes former members of A Perfect Kiss, I Am Empire, and Octaves. The band will soon be releasing the follow up to 2018’s Absolutes, and today, they are unveiling the new single, Negative which was recorded, mixed and mastered by Jack Shirley (Deafheaven, Jeff Rosenstock, etc).
“Negative is about the realization that coming to terms with your own thoughts and emotions is a difficult process. Sometimes it’s easier to be distant and cold. It can mitigate suffering and make our sorrows more bearable. “It’s a song about confronting the darker side of introspection. About embracing those darker feelings in an attempt to regulate your emotional state and become something less chaotic. In the end, realizing that there is a price to pay for using negativity as the catalyst for self discovery.” – vocalist Justin Tracy
