Born from two of the UK's hottest metal grounds - South Wales and Oxford, Never Found have taken the scene by storm, performing headline tours across the UK, sharing stages with the likes of Aiden, FVK and William Control. The quartet are set to release their new EP The Human Condition on October 6 and we have an exclusive track-by-track feature of the record straight from the band themselves!

The Human Condition

The phrase “the human condition” means everything that makes humans what we are like the ability to adapt and build etc. but when I look at the world I don’t see that, I see the people hurting one another over race, religion, gender, sexuality or just because we can. When I think what makes us human all I can think of is violence, lies and covering it all up with self-medication.

The record is kind of based around that idea and an individual’s journey to realising and their internal battle to deal with it so each song on the record kind of has two meanings, their own meaning as a single and how they were written and their place in the story of the record.

  1. Come To Me

In the story of the record ‘Come to me’ is the realisation that everyone has a dark side including yourself and you can blame anyone or anything you want for making you that way but in the end it’s your own demons you have to face and the character wanting to face those demons once and for all. On its own the song it based around somethings in my own life I’m not proud of. Just because you’re a nice person doesn’t necessarily make you a good person.

  1. Favourite Mistake

‘Favourite mistake’ is the character’s battle to change themselves and become the change they believe the world needs to follow. On its own the song resembles a similar battle all of Never Found have faced with substance misuse, I was in and out of counselling for a long time due to alcohol misuse and although I still drink more then I probably should I have managed to get a grip on it and am a lot better than I used to be.

  1. The Monster Remains

On its own ‘The Monster Remains’ is about being bullied and abused but rather than the usual response of stay strong and move on monster is based around the violent thoughts that being abused can lead to. It’s a song based very much around revenge.

In the story it holds a similar meaning except instead of being aimed at a specific person it’s aimed at everyone it’s the characters song against the world and wanting to destroy everything that has become corrupt and diseased.
