Metallic hardcore noiseniks They Live | We Sleep are getting ready to unshackle Sorrowful World, their new four-track EP of ferocious filth. This Friday, 2nd September, is the official date and is being issued through the relentless Trepanation Recordings, a UK label who are fast becoming a staple of our ‘scene’ for releasing painstakingly crafted limited runs.
About the new EP, the band comments, ‘Sorrowful World is an introspective record, birthed in isolation. A hate fuelled, joyless dirge at our absolute lowest. Tackling themes of loss, frustration and a general lack of hope in all things. Living in ruin. Sodden with apathy. Powerless to change. Repulsed by the commodification of human suffering and a world so divided. A brief but blistering piece to be consumed on record as much as it is to be experienced live.’
And today, 48 hours before it hits the streets, we at The Shaman are as happy as a pig wallowing in its own shit to be able to bring you this blistering EP in its entirety…
