As a whole, Tragedy Will Find Us is a noticeably darker affair than Counterparts’ previous LP The Difference Between Hell And Home. While, lyrically, Brendan Murphy still wallows in self-degradation (to a slightly greater degree that TDBHAH), it’s the music that makes most of the difference.
The album is laced with dashes of melancholy and moody riffs pound underneath the melodies from start to finish. There’s anger as well and plenty of it, the kind of emotion that greatly empowers the furious melodic hardcore Counterparts excel at. Tragedy Will Find Usmostly continues where The Difference Between Hell And Home left off, but there’s a little bit of all the band’s releases in it, and it’s all the better for it
