Track Premiere: Rejection Pact – ‘Hollow Ethos’

Check out the new track from Rejection Pact, “Hollow Ethos.” The song is from their forthcoming record, Can We Wait, out November 11.

“‘Hollow Ethos’ is a song about the ethos of the United States. A nation that celebrates and profits off death, violence, and using human rights as a means to secure votes, capital, and maintain positions of power. If you look around you, see how things are… our ethos is hollow and you just have to ask, can we wait?”
Rejection Pact’s new album “Can We Wait?” is the 12-inch follow-up and natural progression from their previous seven-inch release “Threats of the World.” In familiar fashion, the songs leave no room for filler with the 13-track album clocking in under 20 minutes. The new album leans much more into social and political issues, with every song fitting a cohesive theme that begs the question: “CAN WE WAIT?”

The group pulls in influences ranging from politically charged punk acts like Propagandhi and Bad Religion to more straight forward hardcore acts like Bane and Have Heart, as well as drawing heavily from PNW hardcore legends Go It Alone.

The album was record by Ryan Morgan of Misery Signals at the Tonic Room in Boise, ID throughout the spring-summer-fall of 2021, and it was mixed by Taylor Young at the Pit Recording Studio, and mastered by Nick Townsend of Infrasonic Mastering in Los Angeles, CA.

In a wave where so many hardcore bands are leaning into the heavier/mosh sound, “CAN WE WAIT?” is a politically charged, pissed off journey that doesn’t waste any time sugar coating it’s message, and will have you singing along and stage diving in no time.
