Lionheart, California’s reigning kings of heavy hardcore, has released a music video for their new single “Still Bitter Still Cold.” The track comes from the band’s upcoming album Welcome To The West Coast II and premiered with Kerrang! Magazine. WATCH THE MUSIC VIDEO HERE
“The song title and lyrics are a continuation/tie-in to some of our older material,” says vocalist Rob Watson. “The mid-tempo groove is heavy, dark, and helps tell the story perfectly. This is one of our favorite tracks on the new album and one we really look forward to playing live.“
Welcome To The West Coast II marks the band’s return after they announced their departure last year. The title of the record is a continuation to one of their most acclaimed albums that brought forth a new era in California hardcore.
Lionheart stormed onto the West Coast hardcore scene in 2007, taking influence from bands like Blood For Blood, Hatebreed, and Ringworm; the band came out swinging with a full blown assault of blistering metallic hardcore. Since then, they’ve released five albums, including 2016’s Love Don’t Live Here, a well-received record that charted #2 on the iTunes Metal Charts.
Welcome To The West Coast II is available now for pre-order via Fast Break Records (for US) and BDHW (for EU).
