One Step Closer recently announced their highly anticipated new full-length, All You Embrace, and today the Wilkes-Barre melodic hardcore heroes are back with a daring new single "Giant's Despair."

Due out May 17th, All You Embrace boldly expands the scope of One Step Closer's sound, offering their most anthemic and passionate work to date. Lead single "Leap Years" felt like a bridge from the band's past into their present, now "Giant's Despair" fully displays the soaring sense of unabashed melody at work on All You Embrace. By far the most dynamic One Step Closer song to date, the track builds to a roaring conclusion that incorporates shimmering shoegaze guitars, towering drums, and triumphant horns.

All You Embrace follows 2021's This Place You Know and 2023's Songs For The Willow, releases that drew attention from the likes of Pitchfork, Stereogum, Revolver Magazine, The FADER, BrookylnVegan, NPR, SPIN, FLOOD Magazine, and more, and catapulted One Step Closer into the ranks of the most exciting new bands coming out of hardcore. All You Embrace makes good on all of that potential, leaning into the most melodic elements of the band's sound without sacrificing an ounce of energy. Today, One Step Closer fittingly shared the album's lead single "Leap Years," a blast of ultra-anthemic punk that perfectly bridges the fury of their early work and the unabashed melody of their latest chapter.
