Setting off their next chapter as a band, today New England hardcore act WAR CRIMINAL has shared their new single, “From Tha Gutter.” Taking inspiration from the fusion of the late 90’s hardcore scene, the track showcases some of the band’s heaviest riffs and an in-your-face vocal attack.
Originally premiering on No Echo, the video serves as a crash-training course of what it takes to be in a band, pulling inspiration from cult favorites like Office Space and The Office. “From Tha Gutter” also marks a revised line-up for the band, with drummer Tyler Lamkins shifting to vocal duties and the return of founding guitarist Mike Bohanon, with bassist Jamie Way and guitarist Anthony Brown still rounding things out. After gaining notoriety with their 2020 EP, God Failed Me, War Criminal is ready to continue bringing their modern twist on old-school hardcore to the forefront of heavy music.
