Exhaling 01:40
Defeated by you again I've been betting on a losing horse For far too long, it won't suffice. This outcome was your doing An alternate version watching myself Exhaling poison on you and you and you Exhaling poison on you and you and you Eyelids open Grey oceans take hold of me They support my neck And feed me tales Of being overcome alone Exhaling poison on you and you and you Exhaling poison on you and you and you Exhaling poison on you and you and you Exhaling poison on you and you and you

Invalid 01:57
Which one of us Will give up the dream We both worked so hard for I can't, I can't, I can't I can't let it go But it doesn't matter anymore Invalid Invalid Invalid Inavlid I like the work You can say it's pretty It's relentless and meek Meek and over done and done and done But it doesn't matter now at all Invalid Invalid Invalid Invalid Invalid recreation Invalid recreation

Fade Out 02:15 video
Unlucky break you've contracted a plague That takes us away from you It's echolocation now Arms stretched And our eyes are closed now Fade out Fade out Fade out like you Fade out Fade out Fade out like you You list the things that combat you It's a grim place to be Grip weakens, reluctant sigh That explains that it's time to go Fade out Fade out Fade out like you Fade out Fade out Fade out like you It was suppose to me this time We're supposed to get what we deserve Borrow my eyes Borrow my eyes I bury my face and cry Fade out Fade out Fade out Fade out Borrow my eyes Borrow my eyes Fade out Fade out Fade out Fade out

I am a constant, a constant disappointment I am, I am I am a constant, a constant disappointment I am, I am I'll wrap you up in my web of lies I'll wrap you up i'll wrap you up I want everything I want nothing I want everything I want nothing I want everything I want everything I want everything I want

Will Know 01:43

Uncomfortable movements A hesitant gesture It burns my nose It burns my nose Antenna Everywhere Antenna Everywhere You remind me of sand Dull white, nothing there Nothing there You remind me of sand Dull white, nothing there Nothing there Antenna Everywhere Antenna Everywhere

A sinking feeling Goes through my chest Embarrassed to be here Embarrassed to be you Excommunicate Excommunicate Shaking hands in the dark In hopes that it helps your dull art I hope that it helps you I hope that it helps you Excommunicate Excommunicate Excommunicate Excommunicate

Mumbled 02:33
Identical circumstance We lay face first In embarrassment In this horrible place In this horrible place Head in the sand In this horrible place We Spoke Outside Mumbled by your mouth Up went my hand Mumbled by your mouth Up went my hand

Eye Contact 03:26
Perfectly formed Jagged bones poke through skin We look through glass A portrait of your sister Dark green mixed with skin Led my a pattern down To where we all come from To where we all come from Eye Contact Eye Contact Eye Contact Eye Contact We burn inside as ash falls to the ground, ground We burn inside as ash falls to the ground, ground I am a constant, a constant disappointment I am, I am I am a constant, a constant disappointment I am, I am

Boss 03:20
You wanna be the boss You wanna be in control In the mirror I see expat Sour and bitter from before I don't do this anymore We don't do this anymore All day I wait For this one moment It's a living hour It's a waste of time This is dull art for duller people This is dull art for duller people So you wanna be the boss So you wanna be in control So you wanna be the boss So you wanna be in control So you wanna be the boss So you wanna be in control You wanna be the boss You wanna be in control You wanna be the boss You wanna be in control

I can't believe this You mean so much To me, to me I don't even try To be here for you No pain, no loss You're abundance of flesh That means everything to me I want you back, to run my hands through your hair No pain, no loss Nothing, nothing will stop Nothing, nothing will stop Nothing, nothing will stop Nothing, nothing, nothing nothing Will stop

Envious 02:01
You were there first They didn't think That they could love Like this again Now there's me A waste of space Now there's me A waste of space To be envious of a loved one To be envious of a loved one To look through glass Unable to hold What you think Deserverses to be yours Now there's me A waste of space Now there's me A waste of space To be envious of a loved one To be envious of a loved one To have meaning and purpose To have meaning and purpose Head hung, head hung low

Evan 01:55
I saw it happen You were a few blocks away from me Your body twitched on concrete I couldnt bring myself to look There was nothing There was nothing There was nothing I could do It happens, to us all By disease or a heartbreak It's a fact, it's a fact It's fact, it's a fact There was nothing There was nothing There was nothing I could do Never mind the sounds Never mind the sounds Never mind the sounds

Dry Heave 03:06

19.
Blessed 01:43
Unfortunate feeling Falls over me It's not okay to look at you this way I will crawl my way back I can't decide what move to make Constantly rationalizing How we feel and now you've made your call To be an expat of all this We were weak And now we're out of focus I'm not blessed I'm distracted I'm not blessed I'm distracted
20.
Empty Handed 03:02
A misleading conversion Has happened to me Emotional thought Leaves no room No room for error Compare, Compare No good will come of this No good will come of this No good will come of this I screamed about, about him now that's me, like a dog Like a dog with its tail between legs Quivering with guilt and shame Compare, Compare No good will come of this To be left To be left To be left To be left To be left Empty handed Empty handed Empty handed Empty handed

Pores 02:58
A meager existence Put your blinders on Focus on anything, But this one thing It spews from your pores This can't be withdrawn It spews from your pores Focus the lens And the rest will become blurry Unconventional shapes That take up, space for you It spews from your pores This can't be withdrawn It spews from your pores This can't be withdrawn It spews from your pores This can't be withdrawn It spews from your pores This can't be withdrawn It spews from your pores This can't be withdrawn It spews from your pores This can't be withdrawn
23.
Frontal Lobe 01:51
It lasted a few hours Where we thought we were safe You're going to see me in a new, In a new light Blinded by frontal lobe Blinded by frontal lobe Now all i have left Is to scream about it Revisiting a choice That one day will be wise Blinded by frontal lobe Blinded by frontal lobe I could have done better I could have more tact You wanna be the boss You wanna be in control I can't have that I can't have that I could have done better I could have more tact.

about

Winnipeg is cold. Ice cold. And judging by the the emotional brawn and hardcore might of the three-piece Tunic, it can get very very dark. Winnipeg’s Tunic explores that darkness on the band’s new album Exhaling. Across songs like the title track, “Invalid” and “Fade Out,” the trio of David Schellenberg (Guitar / Vocals), Rory Ellis (Bass) and Dan Unger (Drums) use their visceral art punk approach to explore themes related to coping with the illness of a loved one, the dark side of creativity and dealing with toxic friendships.

“I’m not one to write about situations/emotions that I haven’t lived through,” remarks frontman/guitarist David Schellenberg. “I need that catharsis of screaming about these things over and over again. These are all things that have unfolded in my life and I use Tunic as a coping mechanism.”

Tunic was born of spite in– formed after founder David Schellenberg was told he “wasn’t good enough” for another band leading to a subsequent decision to follow his own path. From there, Tunic sought out a sound inspired by the melodic approaches of Quicksand and Superchunk, venom and heartache in Converge and controlled chaos behind Botch. Since their 2016 debut 7”, Tunic have criss-crossed the globe relentlessly, zigging and zagging as part of more than a dozen jaunts in North America and Europe while logging shows with a varied lot like Ken Mode, Single Mothers and even Hank Wood and the Hammerheads. Tunic’s touring bloodlust eventually conjured a debut LP in 2019, Complexion and not surprisingly, the band followed its release with eleven weeks of touring.

The first single, “Exhaling,” serves as a taste of demolition before Tunic’s next full length hits in 2021. This new song, and the legion of firepower on the band’s previous works, serve as fair warning of the brutality that awaits.
