Rochester, NY's The Weight We Carry are poised to feed you their unyielding hardcore, brick first, your teeth second. Two years on from their last release, Hard to Exist, this quintet has continued their all killer, no filler streak with their next release, Vol. 1, out March 22 from Sore Ear Collective. 

Today, we have the honor of premiering “Darkhorse” from Vol. 1, a two-minute roaring throng of pulverizing punk beefiness. Presented with just the right amount of lavishness to bolster its crushing tone, “Darkhorse” improves on The Weight We Carry’s back catalog as much as it is honors it. Churning and chugging at the right moments, this is classic hardcore that is infectiously brutal. Be warned, this will be among the most bruising, passionate hardcore release of 2019.

Vol. 1 can be preordered from Sore Ear Collective and will be available March 22. The homepage photo was taken by Francis Bonn III.
