Hardcore band Suffocate Faster rejoined forces for their first release since 2006 – their single Lost Ones. The track boasts 2 minutes and 51 seconds of unrelenting energy to send a powerful message that the band is stronger than ever since reuniting. The band is boldly returning to the hardcore sphere with two EPs slated for release via Smartpunk Records in 2023.
Musical activism and baring who they are in their lyrics are common threads on their upcoming EP. The story behind “Lost Ones” matches the heavy-hitting track as the band addresses unfair circumstances for individuals with criminal records working to rehabilitate in the modern world.
Pre-orders and exclusive merch bundles for the band’s upcoming EP are available on Smartpunk Records’ website.
The band shared in-depth insight into the meaning behind the track:
“There are so many so-called criminals out there in society that have made mistakes in their young lives or even fallen on hard times at any age. Once they have been branded with a criminal record, especially a felony, our system and people continue to make it as difficult as possible for them to get work or come up in the world. No one is perfect. It only takes a ‘normal’ person getting upset or being pushed too far and they end up in the system just as easily. Give everyone the same chances and you’ll see a big change in our world.”
