Ever wondered what your favourite artists think is the best song they’ve written? How about the meaning behind it? Well don’t fret because we at AltCorner have got you covered! Here This Place Hell‘s guitarist Damien Regan takes us behind the scenes on his favourite song!
What it your favourite song you’ve written?
Our favourite song we’ve written so far would have to be End Game.
What inspired the song?
There was a time back in 2016 when it seemed like you couldn’t go 2 days without hearing about a young person in Ireland that had committed suicide and I remember thinking “How is it that all of these young people are killing themselves and nobody is talking about what’s going on?” you know? Why is no one addressing it?
So lyrically the song addresses topics of mental health and our own frustrations regarding how mental health and suicide is dealt with in our country and hopefully you can hear that frustration reflected in the music too.
What about the song makes it so special to you?
The release of this song coincided with the announcement of Regan joining the band and our first Russian tour so it was an exciting time but more importantly, we all have our struggles with mental health and this song was our way of building community around the issue and saying to anyone going through a hard time, “We see you. We hear you. There is help.”
