New Shipwreck Song: ‘Shipwreck’ by Your Memorial

Shipwreck-themed songs pop up in every genre of music. Unsurprising becuase shipwrecks are timeless metaphors that artists have deployed for as long as there’s been art. This new tune by Your Memorial, a Twin Cities-based metal act, will appear on their new album Redirect, which is due out later this month. I love this video because it includes all the lyrics. You’ll note the timeless themes of hubris, struggle and fear characteristic of shipwreck narratives–themes that date to the earliest shipwreck tales. Enjoy.
