“Born Into Abuse” – vicious political hardcore punks AMYGDALA premiere new video!

2 mins read

One month after their recent new track & video premiere and new LP announcement, Texas based dissonant, apocalyptic hardcore punks AMYGDALA are back with yet another crushing visual. “Born Into Abuse” bumps the tempo up, unveils a whirlwind of fury and thought, and promises a one hell of record. See the official word from the band and watch the video below!

Our Voices Will Soar Forever” comes out on May 3rd via Prosthetic Records and Holy Roar Records.

San Antonio’s AMYGDALA confront nihilism and shatter mental health stigmas with their powerful full length album and Prosthetic Records debut- Our Voices Will Soar Forever.

Produced, mixed and mastered by Clifton Miles at Stone Creek Sound. The album features 11 tracks ranging from fast and furious punk rock to slowed down, doomy metallic hardcore. The new album will be available on all digital platforms, compact disc and LP, with 2 colors as the first print: Opaque Violet and ½ red, ½ black.

“This song is about the emptiness of life, the chaos, the tragedy of endless cycles.” – AMYGDALA

Five-piece San Antonio punk/hardcore purveyors Amygdala position themselves as part of the punk resistance tradition; they started making ferocious, caustic and outspoken hardcore together in 2014, and their new album, Our Voices Will Soar Forever, certainly pulls no punches. The band’s music empowers individuals and communities and is about the non-linear progression of healing, the twisted ways abuse can linger in our psyche, and take control over the ways we navigate life.

Continued below…

Vocalist Bianca Quinones confronts nihilism in her shrilling screams as she begins the record with a song that asks about the emptiness of life, the chaos and the tragedy. With its melodic instruments trucking alongside Quinones’ powerful grasps for meaning in the violent hollowness of existence, the record encapsulates the deeply terrifying nature of living as a victim of rape and abuse.

In classic Amygdala style, each song never stays in one genre, but slowly transitions from traditional melodic hardcore punk, to a heavier, sludgier, black-metal inspired punk whilst never losing true DIY hardcore roots.

Born Into Abuse lyrics:

My question is
Who takes the pill
And then who prays to god
That another child will bless their meaningless lives
That another child will be born into abuse
And then who gets the abortion
And who stays traumatized
And then who gets to be a mother
And then who remains childless
In fear of this world
In fear that history
Will repeat itself
Will undo onto their child
In fear that no matter what things will not get better
In fear that the cycles will not stop here
