Mancunian musical activists HOMETRUTHS have announced details of their debut EP Open Your Eyes, due for release on the 3rd March 2017 via CI Records.
The hardcore/metal outfit have also released a video for the first single from the EP, titled 'Feral'. Check it out here:
The band garnered initial attention in December by posting defaced images of their most despised icons (including Donald Trump and Nigel Farage) in 20 UK cities with the hashtag #OpenYourEyes, generating curiousity across social media. Watch them in action here:
Open Your Eyes is a to-the-point statement of intent, as frontman Gaz Davies explains:
"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."
Born out of five friends’ collective anger and frustration at the state of the world, HOMETRUTHS play passionate groove-laden hardcore, with a strong message of social change. Musically they could be likened to contemporaries While She Sleeps, Sylar and Stray From The Path, but also nod to hardcore masters Madball and Biohazard, and with an added technical flair, their sound is as fresh as their passion is raw.
It's time to take a step back and listen to some HOMETRUTHS.
