We’re super stoked to give you the first listen of “Lone Wolf”, the second single from Portuguese hardcore outfit REALITY SLAP‘s WAR Records debut, “Limitless” due out on January 13th, 2017. Combining the best of old-school aggression with a modern hardcore vibe, REALITY SLAP‘s songs are full of tight riffs, heavy grooves, and they always pack a massive punch. This new powerful single is no different. Head on down below to catch the “Lone Wolf” now!
Limitless EP comes out on January 13th via WAR Records, the label founded by Andrew Kline from STRIFE. Find iTunes pre-orders HERE (including an immediate download of the song “Limitless”) and see colored vinyl and bundles at WAR Records HERE.
REALITY SLAP will be supporting the record on a huge Euro tour with FIRST BLOOD, COMEBACK KID, DEEZ NUTZ, and more in February. See the full list of dates below.
Johnny (vocals) commented:
“Lone Wolf is about soul search. It’s about trying to figure out what you are, and understanding what’s important personally. It’s about being OK with being yourself. Not following what’s expected, not feeling ashamed. It’s ok to be different and it’s something to be proud of. We see it too many times happening in hardcore where you’re expected to act in a certain way and say the same old thing, but that’s not what this scene is all about. Rather than looking outside, I feel it’s time people start looking and focusing on their own being in this sense and embracing how they feel and how they are.. Be angry, make yourself be heard, this scene needs that.”
In 2016, REALITY SLAP signed to WAR Records, owned by Andrew Kline of Los Angeles hardcore band, Strife. The band refined their sound and recorded their strongest material to date, Limitless, at Eyeball Studios in Portugal. Limitless bridges the gap between the old and the new, merging the enduring influence of DMIZE, Outburst, Breakdown, Cro-Mags, and Bad Brains mixed with modern bands like Turnstile, Backtrack, Down to Nothing, and Terror.
