Scenepointblank is premiering the new USELESS ID video “Symptoms”, the title track from their latest full length. They’ll be hitting Italy and Russia this summer with plans for Japan and Australia in the Fall. Symptoms was released in July of 2012 and you can download two free songs here. Guy gives us some background on the song:
While at the studio recording Symptoms with one song short to complete the album, Yotam played a few quiet acoustic demos of potential songs to producer Bill Stevenson. Bill said that out of all the demo songs Yotam played, “Symptoms” stands out and that he thinks it’s got to be one of the best songs on the album if we will record it. He was surprised we didn’t play that one for him till that point. Bill actually liked the song so much that he ended up recording his own lead vocals for the choruses. The video was done by the young and talented Yotam Goren who is a local fan of the band.
