Released on February 15, 2024, at the stroke of 11:00 pm, this track is a masterclass in genre fusion, showcasing the band’s audacity to blend their diverse musical influences into a single, compelling narrative.

Describing “Ricin” as a melting pot of the band’s inspirations would be an understatement.

The song is a nod to the band’s post-hardcore roots while venturing into the realms of pop and emo, creating a sound that’s not only diverse but deeply resonant.

RODERIK, with its name inspired by Edgar Allan Poe’s “The Fall of the House of Usher,” is no stranger to the darker side of art. The band’s approach to music, deeply intertwined with visual storytelling, offers a glimpse into the dark and honest truth of singer/songwriter Jake Anthony Salazar’s lyrics. “Ricin” is not just a song; it’s a chapter in the band’s ongoing narrative, exploring themes of depression and resilience through a fusion of sound and visuals.
