Behind The Tracks: Jordan Coffey - Survival Horror (Single) (2019)


“Survival Horror” stands out as one of my favorite songs off the upcoming album. It’s about that moment you realize that you’re being manipulated or abused in a toxic relationship. It’s a complex emotion you feel when you’re like ‘that’s who you are behind the mask; you’re the reason I’m unhappy, you just keep making me think it’s me.’ You feel paranoid and angry, you know the truth about your situation, but you still feel powerless to do anything about it.

I think musically speaking, “Survival Horror” showcases a little taste of everything that’s on the new album. I went back to the drawing board and re-configured my sound before approaching this record. For inspiration, I decided I was only going to listen to the bands that inspired my favorite bands. So for months, I had nothing but Glassjaw, Fugazi, Descendents, Bad Religion, Deftones, Helmet, the Cure, Nine Inch Nails, etc. on repeat. It helped me approach things with a different mentality, and when I started writing again, “Survival Horror” is one of the first songs that came together.

Recording this song (and the rest of the album) with Kyle Sylvia has been awesome. It’s only the second time I’ve worked with a producer instead of self-recording, but he has a way of capturing the best takes and bringing out the best in each part. Also the guitar solo wasn’t added until after I introduced this song to the live line-up (which Kyle also plays in). He surprised the hell out of us one day by just busting out that out at the end of the song. I immediately was like “We need to record that.”
