UK hardcore outfit BORSTAL, featuring Nick Barker (Brujeria, ex-DimmuBorgir, Cradle Of Filth) and Pierre Mendivil (Knuckledust), release details of brand new two-track 7″ vinyl, along with a new music video for ‘No Surrender’.
Produced by the wizard Russ Russell (Napalm Death, The Exploited, At The Gates), watch the video HERE.
On the new video for ‘No Surrender’, frontman Pierre comments:
“This song is inspired by confronting the defeatist mentality that society seems to want to push on us, on so many levels! And even in ourselves as we battle everyday to try better and strengthen our mental attitude just to deal with life these days.”
BORSTAL guitarist Lee continues:
“It’s nice to finally get some fresh music out there.We recorded these two songs in 2021 with our brother Russ Russell. But due to delays with pressing plants and so on, we got held up! I feel like our sound is really coming together now, and these new tunes are just a teaser for what’s to come. We’ve nearly finished writing our full length too, so they’ll be news to follow that soon.”
|The two songs are a follow up BORSTAL‘s debut EP, At Her Majesty’s Pleasure. The 7″ record is a collaboration between Rucktion Records & 4 Family Records. Both labels are offering different variants and bundles of the 7″ in extremely limited quantities. Pressed on heavyweight Vinyl and including a free download code!
