I Hate To Say It – Texas vicious political hardcore act AMYGDALA streaming new track & video!

Our Voices Will Soar Forever
It’s been 3 years since the release of the acclaimed “Population Control” LP from San Antonio, Texas based AMYGDALA, and today, we’re finally getting a proper teaser of their new LP called “Our Voices Will Soar Forever”! The band just unveiled a new track called “I Hate To Say It”, and you can hear it right here, along with the official music video below!

The new LP comes out on May 3rd via Prosthetic Records and Holy Roar Records.

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.

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, to a heavier, sludgier, black-metal inspired sound to standard hardcore punk.

Lyrics:

I hate to say it
But i’m glad that you’re dead
Death has brought you peace
But family is all we got no matter what they do to you right?
We don’t seek help
We just hope things will change
I hate to say it
But i’m glad that you’re dead
Death has brought you peace
Now i don’t have to wonder if they were hitting you today
I wanted to help you
I wanted to take you away
But family is all we got no matter what they do to you right
We don’t seek help
We just hope it will change
But it will never ever change

Push and pull
It never stops
You want to be loved
Put up with it
You want to be alone then fight back

It’s time to recognize
It’s time to talk
It’s time to put a stop to this
But putting a stop to the abuse is never easy when its family’
The ones who love are the ones who hurt
And i will never forget what you did to him
