We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of Friend Or Foe’s new song “True” (listen below), which features guest vocals by Jimmy Williams of Maximum Penalty. The track is taken from the band’s Foe EP, as well as the two-song True cassette. Foe will be released on August 18th through Flatspot Records. You can pre-order the two-song True cassette here.
Flatspot Records has announced a limited, pre-release cassette single, bearing an advance of the track “True,” as well as an exclusive non-EP demo track on the B-side titled “Invincible.”
Following Friend Or Foe’s 2012 Know Your Rights EP on Reaper Records/Solid Bond Records and 2014 Outsider EP on Triple B Records, Foe sees the straightedge hardcore/punk outfit at their best yet. Packing five new tracks onto their third EP, the band’s undeniable NYHC influences see the band delivering coalescing the inspiration of Breakdown, Sick Of It All, Killing Time, Agnostic Front, and the like with their own hard-hitting, energetic flow. Foe was recorded in the Winter and Spring months of 2016 at Studio F12 by Sam Deyerle and mastered by Mike Reaves, and features art by Steven Kulesza.
Containing current/ex-members of Bracewar, Fire & Ice, Iron Boots, and more, Friend Or Foe has toured the East Coast US multiple times and Europe twice alongside the likes of Naysayer and Fire & Ice. The band has played at some of the world’s prime hardcore and punk festivals including United Blood Fest, Black & Blue Bowl, Sound & Fury, Ieper Fest, and others. The band will be touring regularly in the coming months surrounding the release of their third record, the Foe EP, and onward through the rest of the year, including shows in Richmond and NYC in July, as well as a set of five shows supporting Sick Of It All across the East Coast in September.
