Comments Off on Boundaries Offer Final Preview of Death Is Little More with Today’s Release of “Scars On A Soul”

Boundaries have shared a final pre-release song from the band’s forthcoming album, Death Is Little More (March 29, 3DOT Recordings), with the arrival of “Scars On A Soul” (


Vocalist Matthew McDougal shares the theme behind the three-minute bruiser: “’Scars On A Soul’ is a song about the responsibility of the individual to break the cycle of ‘good enough’ and push through what they fear the most. Live in that fear and take away its power to define you. You owe it to yourself to be the best you can be, and more importantly, you owe it to everyone around you. Don’t allow strangers to impose a ceiling on you.”


In the lead-up to next week’s release of Death Is Little More, the Hartford, Conn.-based band have released two songs and their accompanying videos: “Easily Erased,” picked as one of Consequence’s Heavy Songs of the Week, and “A Pale Light Lingers,” which features a guest spot from Alpha Wolf’s Lochie Keogh. MetalSucks said Boundaries’ new music is “wowing critics all over the place with their sound and fury,” while Knotfest noted the band’s “intense prowess.”


Produced, mixed and mastered by longtime collaborator Randy LeBoeuf (Gideon, The Acacia Strain, Kublai Khan TX), the album also includes additional guest appearances from Honeycutt (Kublai Khan TX), and Marcus Vik (Invent Animate).


Death Is Little More pre-orders ( are available now, with the album available on several, limited-edition vinyl variants, CD and digitally.
