Pump up, start the week off right. Below we are premiering the new music video from Farooq, “Get 2 Work.” The tune crams a ton of mosh worthy, snapping progressions together into one cohesive beatdown. The cataclysmic breakdown that comes in the back half of the song leads to one fiery groove that is meant to keep energy moving and adrenaline rushing. Take a view and listen below!
“Get 2 Work is a nod to the hardcore and hip hop music I grew up on. Our song is an anthem for anyone trying to get anywhere in life or just trying to get by. The footage was shot throughout The Heat 2018 Tour with our good friends Aberrance. Their guitar daddy Jake Hollingsworth captured all of the moments on stage between 10 shows in 8 states. Playing these songs and seeing people’s genuine reactions on stage makes all the work we do off stage worthwhile.” – Farooq
Heat is available on CD via Glacier Recordings; place orders at the label website
Farooq’s inception came at the end of 2010 when two of the founding members, guitarist Phillip Camacho and vocalist Daniel Dominguez combined their musical minds and talents in the hopes of creating something fresh for the California hardcore and metal scene. After a lengthy and exhausting search to find permanent drummer, the guys brought in Eric Martinez and put together a six-song self-titled EP. The band began playing shows shortly by the end of 2011 and has been very active over their seven-year run. The band has since released a second EP titled Gas, Break, Drip in 2012, their debut album The Truth in 2013, and their second album The Faction in 2017. The current lineup also includes guitarist Brandon Rubio and bassist Adam Lopez.
