Structures Return with New Song "Planet of Garbage"
The Toronto band have been on hiatus since 2014
Published Jun 09, 2021Structures have returned with their first new music in seven years. The Toronto metalcore outfit have delivered new song "Planet of Garbage," which you can take in alongside a video below.
As its title implies, "Planet of Garbage" concerns Earth's worsening human-induced climate crisis, featuring lyrics such as "Crumbled to dust, pollute the earth to the crust / We lost our chance to save our existence."
Structures — featuring guitarist/vocalist Brendon Padjasek, guitarist Spyros Georgiou and drummer Andrew McEnaney — last released full-length Life Through a Window in 2014, ahead of going on indefinite hiatus following a December farewell tour. Earlier that year, both original vocalist Nick Xourafas and bassist Spencer MacLean exited the band.
At the time, Padjasek, Georgiou and McEnaney wrote of their decision, "We all feel that a healthy break is necessary for each of us for various personal reasons. We are all on good terms and have made this decision collectively... we are not fully closing the idea of picking things back up if and when the time is right. Who knows what tomorrow brings."
The trio had previously teased the arrival of "Planet of Garbage" in sharing the group shot seen above on social media, pointing to today's release date. They have yet to reveal further details on their return as Structures.
Both Life Through a Window and 2011 full-length debut Divided By were released through Sumerian Records. Structures made their debut with revered 2010 EP All of the Above, which celebrated its 10th anniversary last year.
Outside of Structures, Padjasek handled bass and backing vocals for Aussie metalcore outfit Northlane between 2018 and 2021, while McEnaney has drummed with hardcore supergroup END, Trade Wind, Tate McRae, Scott Helman and more.
