Portland, OR hardcore band Young Turks (not to be confused with the British record label) are set to return with the Where I Rise EP, the followup to their similarly titled 2012 debut full length Where I Lie. The band makes a similar kind of post-millennium melodic hardcore to bands like Paint It Black, Modern Life Is War, and The Hope Conspiracy, and they've got an attitude too. Opening track, "Territo(royally) Pissed" begins with vocalist Matt Koenig declaring "I don't give a shit, your music means nothing, your actions speak even less" over the band's furious hardcore that rarely (if ever) has time for interludes, breakdowns, or anything but full-speed attack.
The EP was mixed by Alex Estrada (who produced both Joyce Manor albums and engineered the first Touche Amore LP) and it will be out next week (11/5) via Animal Style Records. You won't have to wait until then to hear it though, because a stream of the full EP premieres in this post. Check it out below.
