If you’re looking for an adrenaline rush, look no further than Stick to Your Guns‘ new single “Weapon.”
The Orange County, California hardcore band is preparing to release its new album Spectre on July 29 via Pure Noise Records, and this song is just a taste of what’s to come. The furious four-minute track never lets up from the opening lines of “My heart is a weapon!” onwards and is an exciting introduction to the future of STYG.
“‘Weapon’ is about coming to terms with the reality of who I am,” shares singer Jesse Barnett, “I believe that people are products of the circumstances that are forced on them everyday. People say that ‘The American Dream’ is a lie. I don’t think that’s true at all. I think ‘The American Dream’ is alive and well, but like always, it’s only available to a select few. Who I am in this formula is someone who doesn’t accept that.
I don’t care about fair. I don’t care about equal. I care about what’s right, and since the inception of this country, the things it stands for and the things it’s built upon, I believe it is irredeemable and it is my purpose to try to build something new in its place. But before we can do that, what is currently there must be dismantled. A country of sycophants lead by violence addicted oligarchs should and will be destroyed. Every person reaches a crossroads in their life. Roll over or keep going. Sometimes all you have is heart. I know it’s all I have and that’s all I need.”
