Up and coming hardcore heroes Hometruths have released a drum playthrough of “Vigilante”, lifted from their excellent debut EP Open Your Eyes. Currently it stands not only as the best new release I’ve reviewed this year, it is also my favourite body of work to have come out over this year. You can check out the review here. The playthrough of “Vigilante” can be seen below.
The band actively promote peace and unity but are also unafraid to voice their anger at the broken systems that allow the corrupt elites to repress and divide society for their own gain. They are angry, and quite rightly, aiming to inspire others to take a stand together in the fight against the ills that plague our world today.
Their bouncy, hard hitting groove matches their societal messages impeccably, threatening to invade our scene with an obnoxious brilliance that stands toe to toe with modern contemporaries such as While She Sleeps, Stray From The Path and Madball. You’d be mad not to check that out.
Frontman Gaz Davies explains it better here:
The purpose of the record is to educate and enlighten people to what is going on in the world. Far too often people choose to turn a blind eye to these issues but with such a direct in-your-face message, people will find it hard to remain ignorant. People need to wake up. If you disagree with the current political climate, refugee crisis, religious hate crimes, or any injustice that has taken place is the last eighteen months then you are amongst like minded people when listening to our record. It’s time to stand together not against each other, join us.
The Manchester quintet have recently announced two shows including the 27th May at The Boulevard in Wigan with Martyr Defiled, Death Remains and Sworn Amongst. In addition, they play Satan’s Hollow in Manchester on the 17th June with Oceans Ate Alaska, Napoleon and Carcer City. Be there or be elsewhere having a lot less fun.
