New York/UK’s STRAY FROM THE PATH have had a big 2022: the band released their new album Euthanasia, drawing attention from the likes of Revolver Magazine, BrooklynVegan, Alternative Press, Guitar World and many more, then toured heavily on it, and even saw their drummer Craig Reynolds filling in behind the kit with Seth Meyer’s 8G Band. Now to cap it off the group are sharing their new music video for album standout “Neighborhood Watch” which was filmed during their recent North American Tour.
Out now via UNFD, Euthanasia is the darkest and heaviest work of the Stray From The Path’s career, drawing on challenging circumstances to create a record that pulls no punches sonically or lyrically. The album pushes Stray From The Path’s signature blend of groove and aggression into adventurous and ominous new territory, proving that the long-running group are just as fiery as ever.
Stray From The Path have been bringing their charged-up hardcore fury and politically outspoken lyricism to the masses for the better part of two decades, aiming to be the kind of band that can be a gateway to both heavy music and radical ideas. While the long-running group shows no signs of slowing down, Euthanasia was by no means an easy record to make. Stray From The Path found themselves in a fractured state due to the pandemic, an ocean of distance, and even a literal broken back, resulting in an album that reflects the grimmer personal and global circumstances. Produced/engineered by Will Putney (Knocked Loose, Body Count, Every Time I Die), Euthanasia is clearly the work of a more weathered and visceral era of Stray From The Path–the tremendous riffs and hip-hop-meets-hardcore vocal cadences are still there, but this time they’re accompanied by an apocalyptic mood that draws the listener in and doesn’t let go.
Stray From The Path will be hitting the road again in 2023 with a lengthy run of UK and European tour dates on the books. see full itinerary below.
