Firewalker "Hell Bent"

FORMAT

RELEASE DATE: 6/28/24

Boston hardcore band Firewalker may have been relatively quiet over the past few years, but only because they were working on their blistering sophomore album Hell Bent, set for release June 28th through Triple B Records. Following their explosive debut demo in 2016, Firewalker stayed the course, releasing their eponymous LP in 2017, The Roll Call EP in 2019, and their latest demo in 2022. Back in full force, the five-piece band has unleashed nine tracks of 80s-tinged metallic hardcore on Hell Bent. Today, Firewalker shares the single “Carry My Own Torch,” a fervid anthem about declaring independence from a toxic relationship. You can listen to it HERE. On Hell Bent, Firewalker has honed their updated lineup, featuring guitarists Sarah King and Cecelia Halle, progressing toward a heavier sound while still speaking out for those who feel underrepresented or alienated in hardcore. The album was recorded, mixed, and mastered by drummer Sasha Stroud at her studio, Artifact Audio, in NYC. Clocking in at just under 20 minutes—plenty of time to take in the band’s crushing vocals, electrifying guitar solos, and shattering drums—the album demonstrates the rage and passion that come from being women in hardcore. This is the yellow vinyl version, exclusive to Rev and limited to 200 copies.
