Last year, Within the Ruins released their fifth album, Halfway Human, and have since changed singers. Steve Tinnon has taken over for Tim Georgen, who was featured on all of the band's records since their sophomore effort, Invade, was issued in 2010. With their first tour with Tinnon on the horizon, they've dropped two new songs: "World Undone" (heard above) and "Resurgence" (heard below).

"These songs were both written over the course of a big transition period for this band," began guitarist Joe Cocchi. "They have a unique vibe. Nonetheless, we’re more than thrilled to have Steve step up and take over on vocals. It couldn’t be a better fit for us. We’ve known Steve for years through touring and it feels right to have his voice, personality, and creativity as a part of our bands future now."

"I wrote these songs as a pair. I wanted them to go together. 'World Undone' is about feeling like you’ve lost everything and your world has come crumbling down. You’ve been mentally and physically defeated, and no one around you even cares. Everyone goes through dark times where they just feel lost and don’t know what to do," Tinnon said of his lyrical aim. "'Resurgence' is the follow up to that scenario," he added. "It’s about making your way out of those difficult situations and coming out on the other side as a stronger person than before."

The new singer's closing message is one of encouragement: "Life can be a constant struggle, and I think that’s very relatable to a lot of people. But I want these songs to serve as a reminder that no matter how bad things seem, you need to keep pushing and keep fighting. Things can get better. Don’t give up."
