New York hardcore-punks Stray From The Path are back with brand new single ‘Guillotine‘, after three long years since our last sighting of fresh tunes from them. The UNFD outfit return on the back of 2019’s Internal Atomics, which saw the band get into a brief stream of touring before COVID struck.
Since then, we’ve seen front-man Drew York (who we interviewed for Internal Atomics here) feature on Landmvrks‘ Deluxe single ‘Death‘ quite recently, and before that with Danish rock band Siamese on single ‘Home‘.
The return of Stray From The Path with ‘Guillotine‘ is exciting, firstly for the time since new music, but secondly because it showcases their evolution to even heavier and harder material. The single is packed with groovy riffs, aggressive vocals and an addictive throw-down melody that’ll leave you hanging for more.
Guitarist Tom Williams commented on the single:
“During the course of writing this record over the past two years, we’ve seen a lot of shit happening across the US. People are starting to become conscious of the sick system we live in. We’ve seen the working class lose 3.7 trillion dollars while billionaires got richer by 3.9 trillion dollars during the pandemic. We’ve seen essential workers get greeted with a pat on the back and coupons to use at the businesses they worked for, and those same businesses brought in record profits. This system is broken, and it’s starting to deteriorate. In the end, those people who have headed these companies and viciously exploited the working class during this ordeal should be met with the Guillotine.”
