We’re pleased to bring you the premiere of NOi!SE’s new song “Passing Time” (listen below). The track is taken from the band’s forthcoming album The Real Enemy, which is scheduled to be released through Pirates Press Records.
“‘Passing Time’ was written specifically to be the first song on the record. Musically, I wanted it to be like a siren. A wake up call to anyone who would listen. Lyrically, I thought that the theme was a good preface to the rest of the record which is pretty somber in content. ‘Passing Time’ is essentially about refusing to give up on an end state you want to attain no matter how much time goes by in the process. Everyone has something they’ve always wanted to do. Life always has other plans but the thought behind the song is to never quit believing that you can do what you ultimately want to. Hope gets a bad rap. It’s gotten me through quite a bit.” – Matt Henson

About The Real Enemy:
Pirates Press Records is coming at you hard and fast with a brand new full-length from the Washington based powerhouse, NOi!SE.
True to form, The Real Enemy is undoubtedly going to be hailed as a timeless (musical) social commentary. Its raucous sound, some equally profound lyrics, and a really spectacular and fitting layout, highlights what NOi!SE is all about. Complete with riveting drums, insane basslines, great leads, and a true verbal assault, this album reinforces that these guys really have something important to say, and a unique and powerful way to deliver it!
Bringing in some friends to help with the barrage, the story gets even more colorful; with additional vocals on “SPD” by Gordy Carbone (The Forgotten), on “The War Inside” by The Interrupters, and on the title track, “The Real Enemy”, by Al Barr (Dropkick Murphys/The Bruisers). With so many voices helping NOi!SE sing and scream this new installment of their passionate manifesto, The Real Enemy is bound to make waves, and turn heads.
While touring full-time is pretty much off the table due to family obligations and Matt Henson’s role in the US Army, NOi!SE is certainly planning to back up this record with as many live shows, in as many places, as possible. Requests have been coming in droves. Plans to attack both US coasts, as well as Europe are coming together, and likely to surround the release, and flow well into 2017. Anyone who’s seen them live knows that this is reason enough to get excited – but just wait ’til you hear the record!
