After releasing a handful of EPs, splits and singles over the course of a half a decade while honing their style and perfecting their sound, CORRUPT VISION brings nearly half an hour of boisterous hardcore infused ska punk on their new record “These Hands of Mine”. This genuine rarity is a high energy ska crossover grindcore assault that’s set to release June 4th, 2021, and today we’re thrilled to ive you it’s early listen below!
Recorded in Oakland, CA by Mateo Campos of the band Sarchasm and mastered by Will Killingsworth of Dead Air Studios, “These Hands of Mine” was created with the intent of trying to capture that true “crack rock steady sound” mixing fast paced ska punk with hard hitting grindcore.
For fans of: Leper, The Stupid Stupid Henchmen, Real Reggae, Slight Slappers, Le Scrawl, Chewed Up!
The lead single “Eastbound” is about dealing with the trauma and stages of grief when dealing with the loss of a friend, a successor of sorts to their track “Steadfast” off their S/T EP. This song is heavily inspired by the “greats” of crack rock steady such as Night Gaunts and The Stupid Stupid Henchmen.
Songs “No Future” and “I Love Emilia” delve into the topics of manic depression, imposter syndrome and suicidal thoughts and the toll processing these emotions has on a person.
“Bodycams Off” and “Get Out Your Guns” deal with more topical issues such as police reform and the rise of white nationalists within the United States and around the world.
Corrupt Vision hopes to bring this album out on the world when it is safe to do so, the band has had a hardline stance on not performing until there is absolutely no risk to any of themselves, their families, their friends and their fans.
“These Hands of Mine” is due out June 4th, 2021 on vinyl, cassette and CD under No Time Records, Lavasocks Records, DESTRUKTOMUZIK, Tiny Dragon Music, Decolonized Records, Kamicore Records (Canada), Toxic Wotsit Records (United Kingdom) and Good Times Records (Australia).
