We’re pleased to bring you the US premiere of Hometruths’ music video for their song “Feral” (watch it below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming album Open Your Eyes, which is scheduled to be released on March 3, 2017 through CI Records. You can pre-order the album digitally through iTunes and physically here.
Hometruths drummer Alex Mac comments:
“No one is speaking out about what’s happening in the world. Bands are presented with this opportunity to speak out and use their band as a platform yet they decide to speak about nothing. There are true atrocities happening nearly everyday, all you need to do is turn on the TV to see it. There was only so much we could take before we had to take a stand and speak out.”
2016: Intolerance, racism, inequality and hatred are prevailing, humanitarian values are eroding; society’s divisions are growing. It’s time to take a step back and listen to Hometruths. Born out of five friends’ collective anger and frustration at the state of the world, Mancunian musical activists Hometruths play passionate groove-laden hardcore, with a strong message of social change.
Musically, they could be likened to contemporaries While She Sleeps, Sylar and Stray From The Path, but also nod to HC masters Madball and Biohazard, and with an added technical flair, their sound is as fresh as their passion is raw.
The debut EP Open Your Eyes is a to-the-point statement of intent, as front man Gaz Davies explains: “The purpose of the record is to educate and enlighten people to what is going on in the world. Far too often people choose to turn a blind eye to these issues but with such a direct, in your face message people will find it hard to remain ignorant. People need to wake up.”
The band actively promote peace and unity but are also unafraid to voice their anger at the broken systems that allow the corrupt elites to repress and divide society for their own gain. They are angry, and quite rightly, but they also hope to inspire others to take a stand together in the fight against the ills that plague our world today.
Gaz continues: “If you disagree with the current political climate, refugee crisis, religious hate crimes, or any injustice that has taken place is the last eighteen months then then you are amongst like minded people when listening to our record. It’s time to stand together not against each other, join us.”
