Sweet Pill is back with one more new single, “Eternal,” ahead of the release of their forthcoming EP Starchild, due out March 15 via Hopeless Records. Pre-orders are available now.

The Philadelphia punk quintet made their label debut in 2023 with the EP’s title track, and shortly followed up by the math rock-infused “Chewed Up.” Today, the band showcased the dazzling, melancholy “Eternal.” Check out the new song below.

“’Eternal’—this song makes me feel like I’m at home. The music is soft and comfortable but the lyrics still cut like a knife. I remember playing the main riff of this while sitting on my couch, Zayna [Youssef] was in the other room and immediately stopped what she was doing to sing the melody that popped into her head,” says guitarist Jayce Williams.

The artist continues sharing, “When we write a song as a band it is usually a meticulous and lengthy project, writing ‘Eternal‘ was smooth – the structure came together and overall just made sense. This is a new sound for Sweet Pill, similar to how ‘Starchild‘ and ‘Chewed Up‘ stand out from tracks on Where the Heart Is, and we’re excited to showcase our dynamics.”
