Song of the Day

Trail of Lies, “Fight for Victory,” from W.A.R. (Edgewood Records, 2018)

One of the most hyped hardcore bands of the last few months has certainly been Trail of Lies. I first heard the band in 2017 via their 2-track God of Rage cassette, and I've been a fan since. The Syracuse, NY-based group recently dropped "Fight for Victory," a cut from their forthcoming 12", W.A.R., and it's a banger.

Lyrically, I'm also loving the straight-forward and positive message. "Focus on your craft / and never settle for anything less" goes one part in the opening verse, setting the stage for the rest of "Fight for Victory." Yeah, I'm definitely down with that kind of thinking. I look forward to the rest of the album and will hopefully get to see Trail of Lies live sometime this year.

W.A.R. is available for pre-order via Edgewood Records in the States. The following labels are handling the release in Europe (Farewell Records), Australia (Life.Lair.Regret Records), and Japan (Retribution Network).
