Uniform & The Body share the new single “Not Good Enough” from their second monolithic collaboration, Everything That Dies Someday Comes Back, out August 16 via Sacred Bones.
Of the track, Uniform’s Michael Berdan explains, “There is no deeper meaning to Not Good Enough outside of what the title spells out. It is a song about my relationship with my worst enemy: myself. So much of who we become is shaped in our early childhood. For me, my identity was that of a heavy set kid with a learning disability from a broken home in a rougher neighborhood. I may have grown up. My physical body may have changed. I may have made peace with my family. I may have escaped my hometown. I may have developed techniques to function as an adult. In the end, in my mind, it means little to nothing. I am still the hyperactive fat kid who can’t stay still and gets beat up in the nearby park. Self knowledge avails me little. True or not, I will never be complete. I will always be defective. I will never be good enough. All of the love and success and acceptance in the world will never heal the scared little kid in my head.”

Everything That Dies Someday Comes Back will be released August 16 as part of Sacred Bones’ Alliance Series.
