As vital as they’ve ever been – if not more so in the world's current climate - HACKTIVIST are back. They return with new vocalist and brother-in-arms Jot Maxi, following the amicable departure of Ben Marvin, and are set to take on the main stage at Download Festival.
To celebrate HACKTIVIST have released a new version of Outside The Box’s grimecore standout 'Rotten', which featured Jot himself, titled '2 Rotten'.
Check out the video here:
“2 Rotten is a strong enough platform for Jot to show the world what he's all about,” says guitarist / producer Timfy James. "Jot has brought many different new qualities to the mix – new and exciting flows, song concepts and general craziness. He fits in well, almost like he's always been there. What does the future hold? Expect filth and fire coming your way.”
"I remember seeing J [Hurley, Hacktivist co-frontman] on a night out and him telling me they'd just started a next-level new band,” adds Jot. "Once I'd met the rest of the guys there was talk about a collaboration and eventually I wrote the bars for the first version of Rotten. The rest is history really, it worked so well that when Ben announced he was leaving we all mutually felt it was only natural that I'd be the one to step in."
'2 Rotten' follows HACKTIVIST's Over-Throne EP, debut album Outside The Box (both 2016) and 2013’s self-titled EP. New music is coming. Be ready.
