Australian hardcore band Iron Mind is making a powerful comeback with their latest single, “Assume Your Ultimate Form,” set to be released on September 22nd through Flatspot Records. Known for their raw, aggressive energy, the band first gained attention with their EP “The Sun Has Set” in 2009, followed by “Hell Split Wide Open” in 2011 and a self-titled album in 2014.
The upcoming single features two intense tracks: the title track “Assume Your Ultimate Form” and “Spiral of Debt.” The music was recorded in Melbourne, AUS at The Black Lodge Studio by Sam Johnson and later mixed by Taylor Young at The Pit. The title track, available for streaming now, showcases Iron Mind’s distinct blend of groove-driven hardcore and straightforward lyrical themes.
Iron Mind consists of Sam Octigan on vocals, Neil Bloem and Akira Asahina on guitars, Josh Barclay on drums, and Dan Collins on bass. Fans can preorder the single on cassette via Flatspot Records and through Last Ride Records in Australia.
