HACKTIVIST ‘False Idols’ Single & Video Due Monday 4th August

Milton Keynes-based tech-metal-grime-rock hybrid HACKTIVIST release brand new track ‘FALSE IDOLS’ on MONDAY 4th AUGUST, their first new release since 2013’s ‘ELEVATE’ (not counting their highly successful cover release of Jay-Z & Kanye’s ’N****as In Paris’ at end of last year).

 

Recorded & mixed in the band’s own studio set-up, ‘False Idols’ once again merges the tight rhymes of co-frontmen J Hurley & Ben Marvin with crushing riffs and jagged tempos, but moves the Hacktivist sound on from last year’s releases, instead pointing the way to the band’s upcoming album release, on which work continues (stay tuned for news).

 

Its not all been time wasted in Hacktivist-world so far this year. The band ventured down under for their first ever Australian shows, appearing on the mammoth Soundwave Festival, and toured Europe as special guests of Korn before starting the 2014 festival circuit and opening for Limp Bizkit in France.

 

‘False Idols’ comes a few weeks ahead of the band’s main stage appearances at Reading (Friday 22nd Aug) & Leeds (Saturday 23rd Aug) Festivals, and follows the newsof their headlining UK tour this Nov / Dec (a tour as part of the ‘Download Freezes Over’ series of tours, which features Sheffield metal-core-ish-ers DEAD HARTS as main support, and Guildford’s THE ONE HUNDRED opening proceedings).

 

Keep your eyes out for the link to the ‘False Idols’ video which will be coming Monday morning.
