Texan duo bring their big blend of searing breakdowns and stellar choruses on their latest output

Texan hard rock crew Lift The Curse have dropped new single and music video, "Chemical".

Lift The Curse are earning a reputation as one of the most hard working bands in rock. Their perennial conveyor of powerful anthems has come thick and fast in 2023. With influence rooted in hard rock, melodic punk and metalcore, fans are treated to epic choruses, dazzling riffs and thunderous breakdowns on new single "Chemical".

Speaking on the new track, Jon Yadon shares: "Chemical" is about trying to recapture feelings that used to be vibrant but have since faded away. It is about rejuvenating and hoping you can feel the same way again".


Comprised of Jon Yadon Jr. and Ryan Hegefeld, Austin rock duo Lift The Curse fuse hard rock tones, filthy breakdowns and veracious melodies. Anchored by the longtime friends' inherent chemistry, the band marries influence from across metal, rock and pop.

Yadon Jr. and Hegefield cut their teeth as two thirds of former project TrineATX, who saw success across the Lonestar Star, playing with the likes of Fuel, Hinder and Powerman 5000. Fast forward to April 2022 and Lift The Curse was born, with the release of debut single “Rise With The Flames”.

The band released a quickfire string of singles throughout the second half 2022, with the likes of "Take Me Under" and "The Color Brave" offering a window into a heart of a project that puts songwriting front and centre; alternative rock intonations, pummelling riffs and unforgettable hooks all sitting at the core of Lift The Curse's soundscape.

Lift The Curse's popularity hit new heights in the first half of 2023, with the release of LP Suffer & Survive, a potent collection of tracks that marry expert storytelling with technical wizardry. Popular track included hit single "The Debt" and the blistering "Tidal Wave", with the album racking up over 500k streams in a matter of months.

Now, moving into spooky season, the two Texans continue their dazzling output, with the dark and visceral "Chemical".
