Alice Glass’ “Cease and Desist” is a call to arms for all survivors

After the release of her first EP that followed the break up with Crystal Castles, Alice Glass shares a new track called “Cease and Desist”.

Coming after the legal issues she has with former band partner Ethan Kath, the new track is a very evident response to the diffamation lawsuit. The noise-rock track features additional writing/production from Jupiter Keyes and Dreamcrusher. The main lyrics of the track recalls her situation with her duo and the problems that followed: “Promise me/ You’re never the victim/ You have to fight right now.”. About the track, Alice Glass explained:

This song is a call to arms for all survivors. But being a survivor often means feeling afraid, it means sometimes feeling worthless, like you can’t go on. We need to fight back against those who have victimized us and against the feelings that tell us to give up inside. Sometimes we think we deserve the pain others have inflicted on us. This song is what I need to tell myself to get through each day, and what I hope other survivors can remember when they feel like they can’t make it through the darkness of their own recovery. Every day is a fight.

Alice Glass‘ “Cease And Desist” is out now via Loma Vista.
