1 min read

Coming straight out of the streets of Lisbon, Portugal, REALITY SLAP is ready to show world that great hardcore music exists beyond the confines of the United States. REALITY SLAP combine the best of old school aggressive sounds with modern groove based hardcore vibe. Their songs are full of fast riffs, heavy grooves, and they always pack a punch. A trailer previewing Limitless has been issued; check it out below.

The members of REALITY SLAP are no strangers to the punk and hardcore scene. Collectively, they have been touring across Europe in their previous bands before forming and hitting the touring circuit as REALITY SLAP in 2009. After the release of their demo and first EP in 2009, they recorded and released their first full-length album Necks & Ropes in 2012, the album featuring appearances from Justice Tripp (Trapped Under Ice, Angel Du$t) and Winston McCall (Parkway Drive).

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.

Limitless is set to be released in the Fall of 2016 on WAR Records… Prepare to get slapped by reality! An official release date, further audio previews, tour dates and more will be posted in the coming days.
