Cutthroat LA have been doing their thing since 2003, a virtual lifetime in the hardcore world. Brought together by their shared love for hardcore, thrash, and '90s hip-hop, the group has shared the stage with such notable acts as Sick of It All, Madball, and Slapshot throughout the years.

Later this month, Cutthroat LA will be heading to Europe to be part of the Persistence Tour alongside Gorilla Biscuits, Agnostic Front, and Street Dogs, among other hard-hitting groups. In celebration of the forthcoming trek, Cutthroat LA will be unleashing a Billy Graziadei (Biohazard)-produced EP entitled Reflekt, and No Echo has the video premiere for one of its tracks, "Trouble," for you to check out:

"The song was written about people like 'us' who have tattoos, dress the way we dress, talk the way we talk, and listen to the music we listen to," Cutthroat LA vocalist Neil Roemer tells No Echo. "We sometimes get stereotyped because of these things. However, we're probably the most polite, honest and loyal people around. 

"A while back, I was in a conservative part of Northern California with a bunch of friends and an older couple (probably about my mothers age) grabbed their daughter as we walked by and said 'those are the types of people we warned you about, they're trouble.'" 

Reflekt will drop on Jan. 10 via Demons Run Amok and can be pre-ordered here. The Persistence Tour 2020 will kick off on Jan. 15 in Hamburg, Germany. See all of the dates below.
