No Echo first told you about Final Declaration in the very beginning of 2020, premiering their debut EP, The Line in the Sand. Representing the Buffalo hardcore community, the quartet obviously had their live plans for most of last year cancelled by the pandemic but they didn't waste time just sitting around.
Comprised of vocalist Evan Duckett, guitarist Donny Arthur, drummer Ron Hill, and bassist Mark Franklin Final Declaration spent the downtime working on new material and plotting their return.
While we wait on information on their forthcoming LP, Final Declaration has teamed up with No Echo to present the premiere of a track called "Stone Ghosts" today. Heard below, the song finds the New Yorker's joined by Ace Stallings (Mutually Assured Destruction, Sentinel, Break Away) who lends guest vocals to the (brutal) proceedings:
"Erase the rest of our racist past/these stone ghosts cant fucking last"
Final Declaration vocalist Evan Duckett tells No Echo the following about his lyrics: "The track is dedicated to every piece of shit monument to a Confederate South that no longer exists and how there should not be peace until every single one is torn to the ground.
"Aptly featuring Ace Stallings (Mutually Assured Destruction, Sentinel, Break Away), who hails from the epicenter of this movement in Richmond, VA, the song is an anthem to those willing to stand up and spit on the grave of those who deserve to be forgotten."
The "Stone Ghosts" single will be available on streaming platforms on September 3rd. Stay tuned for their new LP coming soon.
