Raging Speedhorn return to action with the release of their new studio album Hard To Kill, available on vinyl, CD, download, and all streaming platforms on their own Red Weed Records label October 23.

Recorded with Russ Russell (Napalm Death, At The Gates) at Parlour Studios in Kettering, U.K., Hard To Kill sees Raging Speedhorn once again upping their own ante in terms of song-writing finesse, playing riff-fuelled, dirty heavy metal with aplomb.

The title track, for which the band recently unveiled a new, high-octane video is as monstrous and infectious as the sentiment itself.

“This album is straight-up Raging Speedhorn—with added extras,” says founding co-frontman Frank Regan. “Right now, the band is on fire; the vibe is amazing, and we’re so happy to be back playing music. Six albums in, and we’re still loving what we do.”

The album—the follow-up to 2016’s Lost Ritual, is the first to feature new vocalist Dan Cook who replaces long-standing co-vocalist John Loughlin. John stood down after 21 years during the recording of Hard To Kill, leaving the mantle open for Dan.

RSH also welcome new guitarist Dave Leese and former Hundred Reasons bassist Andy Gilmour who join founding drummer Gordon Morison and guitarist Jim Palmer.
