Label: End Hits Records
Released: 29th July 2022
It’s been five years since Stick To Your Guns’ last album – 2017’s ‘True View’. A lot has changed since then, but their importance to hardcore remains as relevant as ever.
Allowing themselves to stray away from the beaten path, there’s an evolution of their own terms. Big choruses punch through with a guttural thump, riffs are direct and determined, and lyrically the righteous fire burns bright. Not afraid to take on the world around them, and the cynical, oppressive forces that dominate it, there’s a determined sense of urgency throughout.
A wake up call delivered in the most assertive terms possible, Stick To Your Guns are more than living up to their name. ■ Dan Harrison
