Hardcore king Strengthen What Remains released a new track today, “Liberation of the Spirit,” via Rock Feed. The song comes from a promo cassette tape from the Florida-based band, to be released by Blood and Ink Records. It’s a three-song EP due out Jan. 27.

Vocalist Josh White spoke about the song via press release:

“‘Liberation of the Spirit’ is my favorite track on the promo tape. It’s about recognizing my need for something bigger than myself and being brutally honest with my shortcomings and flaws in order to grow and learn from them.”

You can grab the promo tape from Blood and Ink’s store.

Between the White Noise

My Epic's last full-length album came out in 2013; despite a number of EPs along the way, the band's dedication to their craft, lyrical approach, and unyielding approach to let the music come naturally has made them critical darlings. Now, they're learning to interact and feed a rabid fanbase in between albums and in a new normal.
