Wax Idols Share New Song “I’m Not Going”

Wax Idols bandleader Hether Fortune is a survivor. “I’m Not Going,” taken from American Tragic, out October 16th on Collect Records, is a statement of defiant endurance, of strength in the face of adversity. Over shimmering guitar and a slow but steady pulse Fortune sings, “I’ve got diamonds in my bones, I can shine alone.” The song was premiered by Consequence of Sound this morning. Of the song, Fortune says, “In light of recent events, it’s hard for me not to think of this song in hindsight as being somewhat prophetic. I feel like it speaks for itself. My only hope is that someone else will hear it for what it is and will receive the message I’m sending, which is to never give up on yourself – no matter what horrors life throws at you.” For a statement by Fortune on her relationship with Collect Records and ongoing partnership with the label, you can visit the Wax Idols Facebook page. American Tragic is available for pre-order now from Collect Records.

Wax Idols will be touring this October and November, kicking off with a trio of dates with label-mates No Devotion and Creepoid. These include a special Collect Records/Brooklyn Vegan showcase at CMJ Oct. 14th. All dates starting after Oct. 18th are with Them Are Us Too.
