Post-hardcore quintet Limbs have released their debut full-length album ‘Father’s Son‘ via UNFD.

A conceptual album following a young man breaking free from his indoctrinated upbringing, the album explores the harm it causes and the strength in reclaiming your own life.

Frontman Chris Costanza explains;

It’s loosely based off of some of my own personal experiences and feelings. It begins with the young man feeling distraught and angry after coming to some realizations about his upbringing and the harm it has done to both himself and others. It slowly turns inward as he reflects on himself and takes personal responsibility for his actions and deals with the aftermath of making such a drastic change in his life.

A brooding and cathartic album Costanza describes as “Norma Jean meets Radiohead“, ‘Father’s Son‘ came together with help from Tim McTague in the pre-production stages before moving on to record with Beau Burchell.

Originally formed in 2013 under a different moniker, Limbs released their debut album entitled ‘Dead Ends‘ before undergoing a fairly drastic lineup change. After taking eight months for reformation, Limbs regrouped and released their second effort, ‘Admission‘, in late 2014.

The following year Limbs toured the DIY circuits relentlessly, dropping singles and gaining fans along the way. After a tour with Saosin, the band recorded a three song EP entitled ‘Sleep‘, which was mixed by Beau Burchell and mastered by Mike Kalajian, and was eventually re-recorded with Tim McTague.

Flash forward to 2018 and Limbs have found a new home with UNFD.

The band prepare to spend the next five months criss-crossing the highways of America showcasing ‘Father’s Son‘ with the likes of Underoath, Veil of Maya, and on the Vans Warped Tour, Costanza reflects on the life lessons expressed within the album.

The biggest lesson I’ve learned is that love comes in many forms. Some people come at love from a religious standpoint, others from a spiritual standpoint, some from a more pragmatic place. But the most important thing I’ve realized is that (at least to me) it shouldn’t matter where that love comes from. Seeing love in so many forms and from so many different viewpoints has been extremely eye opening for me and helped me broaden my view of love and how it’s given/received. I think that’s something I’ll never stop learning.

Father’s Son‘ is available now. Listen below.
