Eerder dit jaar bracht Stick To Your Guns nog hun EP The Meaning Remains uit. Daarop kregen we de stevige jongens op een heel andere manier te horen. Op hun nieuwste single More Of Us Than Them krijgen we hen echter opnieuw te horen zoals we dat gewend zijn: stevig en snakkend naar rechtvaardigheid.
More Of Us Than Them is echter een speciale song. Zanger Jesse Barnett poste het volgende:
In 2015, Tom Searle sent me an email that had a breakdown he had written that he thought was “too STYG” to be used for @architects. It hasn’t seen the light of day until yesterday. It already feels awesome finally releasing a song that’s been finished since December 2019 but to have Tom’s hands on this song makes this one of the most special songs on the record and one of the most special STYG songs ever. So give it a spin, turn it up and when you get the the end of the song be sure to thank heavy music genius, Tom fucking Searle, for his contribution. Thank you so much to everyone who has listened. Through the pain, frustration, grief and anger we still dare and still struggle to invent a new world. Thank you Tom, @stygoc @architects @wzrdbld @vitalo88 @end_hits_records & @purenoiserecs.
T//S FOREVER. REST IN POWER COMRADE.
Since emerging in 2003, Southern California’s Stick To Your Guns—Jesse Barnett [vocals], Andrew Rose [bass], George Schmitz [drums], Chris Rawson [guitar], and Josh James [guitar]—have merged socially conscious and outspoken lyricism with hardcore energy and hammering metallic force. They took a bold step in a new direction on their sixth full-length album, True View [Pure Noise Records] by expanding their grasp of melody, amplifying the haunting clean vocals, and incorporating actual phone conversations to thread together a narrative of self-realization. It was only a matter of time before they got this personal. Through countless shows and a steady stream of music, the band attracted a devout fan base. Among many accolades, Diamond would bow at #1 on Billboard’s Heatseekers Chart in 2012 as 2015’s Disobedient went Top 100 on the Billboard Top 200. 2016 EP, Better Ash Than Dust, repeated the #2 debut on the Hard Rock Albums Chart and earned acclaim from Alternative Press, Revolver Magazine, New Noise Magazine. Moreover, 2017 saw Stick To Your Guns make history, becoming “the first American hardcore band to play East Africa” in Nairobi, Kenya. Along the way, Stick To Your Guns toured across the globe with everyone from Every Time I Die and The Amity Affliction to BlessTheFall and Being As An Ocean in addition to multiple stints on the Vans Warped Tour.
