Fresh off garnering positive feedback for the aggressive I’m Ghost, The Antiheroes take a sharp turn into more contemplative territory with the fourth and final pre-album song release off their forthcoming, DJBooth-hosted LP. Making its world premiere right here on our front page, Understand is a lyrical meditation on fatherhood. Over a tuneful MMac production, Toronto emcees Sha Prince and Flex reflect on the awesome responsibility that comes with bringing new life into the world. Ultimately, they affirm that they’re up to the challenge: “I’m on my way to get it right for the first time in my life.” T-Dot singer and reader fave-in-the-making Emerson Brooks lends his vocals to the hook. Fans will be able to find this poignant jam and many more quality cuts on The Antiheroes’ Modern Day Riot LP, set to hit our front page March 25, for free streaming and download.
