We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Reality Slap’s new music video for their song “Limitless” (watch it below). The song is the title track from the band’s upcoming album, being released January 13, 2017 through WAR Records.
“‘Limitless’ is the first video for the new EP. We wanted to get a little trippy and show a bit of the vibe of our new sound. The DIY spirit is always present in everything we do, it’s a very important side of this scene so we got our hands dirty and did everything ourselves at Tiago’s house in one afternoon. We have a thing about trashing houses while playing music as everyone can see when we played a show at our friend’s flat and recorded a video for “The End.” – Johnny (Reality Slap)
“It’s been quite the journey putting together this EP. We’re beyond stoked to get it out and share it with everyone. This has been a very special and personal recording to make. WAR records will allow us to reach more people within and outside Europe so that’s pretty cool. Andrew is great to work with, very accessible and very dedicated, no wonder he has been around in this scene for so many years and still being very active. It’s a bit overwhelming to think what’s still to come for us since we’ve announced this release a lot of good stuff has happened to us.
‘Limitless’ is definitely our proudest record yet and it shows quite well the new direction we want to give to the band’s sound. Still raw, still in your face but with a little bit more refined touch to it. We can’t wait to hit the road and start playing all this new stuff live.” – Johnny (Reality Slap)
“I’m excited to be working with Reality Slap to release ‘Limitless’… The first time I heard the EP I was blown away… Hardcore kids need to look beyond their borders and see that there are great bands coming from all corners of the world. I really think that Reality Slap is the band that can bridge that gap and really wave the flag for the European and worldwide hardcore scene.” – Andrew Kline (WAR Records / Strife)

About Reality Slap:
Coming straight out of the streets of Lisbon, Portugal, Reality Slap is ready to show world that great hardcore music exists beyond the confines of the United States. Reality Slap combine the best of old school aggressive sounds with modern groove based hardcore vibe. Their songs are full of fast riffs, heavy grooves, and they always pack a punch.
Reality Slap are no strangers to the punk and hardcore scene. They have been touring across Europe in their previous bands before forming and hitting the touring circuit with Reality Slap in 2009. After the release of their demo and first EP in 2009, they recorded and released their first full length album Necks & Ropes in 2012 featuring appearances from Justice Tripp (Trapped Under Ice/ Angel Du$t) and Winston McCall (Parkway Drive).
In 2016 Reality Slap signed to WAR Records, owned by Andrew Kline of Los Angeles hardcore band, Strife. The band refined their sound and recorded their strongest material to date, Limitless, at Eyeball Studios in Portugal. Limitless bridges the gap between the old and the new. Think DMIZE, Outburst, Breakdown, Cro-Mags and Bad Brains mixed with modern bands like Turnstile, Backtrack, Down to Nothing, and Terror.
