Porno for Pyros released “Fingernail,” their final song ever, on Friday (April 5).

The band recorded “Fingernail” last year, along with “Agua” and “Little Me.” All the songs were written in the ’90s.

“Fingernail” features Porno for Pyros’ original lineup of singer Perry Farrell, guitarist Peter DiStefano, drummer Stephen Perkins, and bassist Martyn LeNoble. Robert Adam Stevenson, who co-produced the song, worked on its piano and string arrangements.

“It was originally supposed to come before the tour, we tried, but even the best laid plans don’t always work out,” the band wrote on social media and called it “a beautiful song, one that we hope resonates with you as it does with us.”

“The moment the melody touched the words I knew it would be a special song. But I was too immature to understand the essence fully,” Farrell said of “Fingernail.”

“There is no pain in the cutting of our hair, eyelashes or a fingernail, because they are dead, although the world at every instant is renewed. The death invested within us is pushed out, and the soul is again restored,” he added.

LeNoble commented, “In ‘Fingernail,’ I hear our lives, and yours. Decades of growing. Happiness, heartbreak, tension, loss and joy. growing pains. In this case it took almost 30 years for this song to slowly grow into what it is now. And, the way the song ends. I love redemption songs. I’d say we ended it well Perry, Peter and Stephen.”

“Fingernail is a true marriage of story meets storytelling in twisted harmony,” Perkins said, while DiStefano commented, “Fingernail to me is the art of patience while in recovery.”
