STRAY FROM THE PATH Share New Song/Video “Actions Not Words”; New Album Due Out Nov. 1st!

Long Island, NY hardcore heavyweights, STRAY FROM THE PATH, recently announced their upcoming full-length, Internal Atomics, due out November 1st from UNFD. Today the band are sharing another taste of the album with their new single and music video, “Actions Not Words.”

The song opens with an absolutely punishing barrage of drums and distortion before kicking into the kind of groove-laden riffs that Stray From The Path excel at. Lyrically, its inspired by humanitarian organizations like Actions Not Words and Hardcore Help, who the band teamed with in 2018 to raise funds for water filters for villages outside Nairobi, Kenya, even traveling there to help install the filters, meet the community, and cap off the visit with a show. Kerrang went in the studio with the band to discuss the making of the track in the latest entry in Will Putney’s Art of The Record series.

Stray From The Path will be touring worldwide in support of Internal Atomics. The band will embark on a North American tour with Counterparts and playing their biggest UK/EU headlining shows to date with support from The Devil Wears Prada, Gideon, and Loathe (tickets available now). The band will also be playing dates in Japan and Australia, including the Unify Gathering 2020 festival. See full itinerary below.

Lyrics:

The innocent are truly guilty
Complacency is criminal, this shit is not subliminal
The failures in your face when your eyes close
All you know is tunnel vision, they don’t go where the dark goes
High horses, of course it’s easy living where the grass grows
Thoughts and prayers get us nowhere, so fuck what you heard
Actions speak louder than words

How real is your real world?
you get lost in it you fail victim to the cause of it
How real is your real world?
Two sides polarized social suicide
How real is your real world?
you get lost in it you fail victim to the cause of it
How real is your real world?
what’s left for the rest of us?

I watched the earth burn slow
I walked the ground where nothing grows
Everything is nothing, nothings all they know
Everyone should be your brother, but your care is a cover
So, put the money where the mouth goes
Thoughts and prayers get us nowhere
Fuck what you heard
Actions speak louder than words

How real is your real world?
you get lost in it you fail victim to the cause of it
How real is your real world?
Two sides polarized social suicide
How real is your real world?
you get lost in it you fail victim to the cause of it
How real is your real world?
what’s left for the rest of us?

when there’s a knock on the door
Will you answer or ignore?
It starts with you & ends with more
The choice is yours
Change the world
