Path To Misery has only ever fully stood against one thing: repression. Granted our lyrical stances have encompassed said repression in many of its varied forms, the underlying sense of rage has always been mutually rooted.
The very first set of lyrics written, Cheating Life, dealt with the repression of the earth. As potentially uneducated as it may be, Third World War was very critical of the repression of the people in the middle east. For The Innocent has served as a rallying anthem against the repression of animals. The very last song written for our previous full length, Inherent Incapability, even went as far to decry the personal repression of men and "womyn" alike.
While these subjects typically sat well with our unfortunately left-leaning fanbase at the time, apparently some of our newer lyrics from the upcoming EP fail to appease said in-crowd. Apparently repression is reprehensible when applied to previously-mentioned agendas yet both permissible and actually encouraged when applied to issues that, at least in their minds, apply to typically white, christian, conservative, American males.
Path To Misery always has and always will be a band that stands opposed to repression in ALL of its forms. On this upcoming EP we will extend this opposition on all fronts to include issues ranging from personal issues such as domestic abuse to worldwide issues such as the Disarmament of the peoples of the world ... and yes, that includes the repressed minorities and insurgents right alongside the "typically white, christian, conservative, American males".
As stated from day one, Path To Misery will never subscribe to any set of ideals or prescription of conformity. Identifying yourself as a liberal is every bit as idiotic and childish as the conservatism in which this "scene" so vehemently fights against despite its own obvious alienation and indoctrination which it both allows and nurtures in itself.
End rant. Continue being heavy.
