Last Wishes are a hardcore band from the U.K. who have recently shared a new video for “Loyalty.”
The track can be found on the band’s forthcoming album, Organized Hate due out April 29 via DAZE (US) and The Coming Strife (UK.)
“Loyalty” hones in on the band’s craft in cultivating brutally raw music, blending screaming and delicate, clean vocals making for an excellent pair.
“The song is about staying true to your friends, which is the foundation of what hardcore means to us, also giving respect when it’s due and not expecting anything you didn’t earn. We wanted to make an old-school style video for it, no storyline or anything just a representation of what we do, we play shows, hang out, get tatted by our friends and just goof around,” say the band regarding the new track.
The band embody their influences from growing up and listening and playing hardcore music Organized Hate highlights the bands’ life experiences with pain and angst, produced with empathetic undertones.
“We wanted to express the hardships of growing up in a place like Northern Ireland, but in a way that would be relatable to anyone no matter where they’re from as this kinda shit happens all over the world in different ways. The first half of the record deals with feelings of anger and aggression, acting on those feelings without thinking and feeling rejected by people and society,” says vocalist Corin about the new record. “Then, we dive into the psychological effects this can have, looking inside yourself for reasons why you feel or act a certain way, not fitting in, past traumas that shape you as you grow older.”
