The band will be released a new album next year as well.
Hacktivist are back and firing on all cylinders.
The band have just dropped a new track called 'Armoured Core', a dizzying display of technical riffs and impassioned verses that feel more like a statement of intent than a piece of music.
It also features a heated appearance from Kid Bookie.
Co-vocalist J.Hurley had this to say about the tune:
"It’s like a shield against anyone attacking us. Anyone can say anything they want, but you can’t get through the armoured core! Talk shit if you want, but it ain’t gonna affect us. I listen to a lot of other rappers and I know that my lyrics are strong. I know that no-one can fuck with this.”
Co-vocalist Jot Maxi added this:
“This is a song for anyone who is going through a hard time and needs building up. It’s motivational. It makes you feel like, ‘Nothing can touch me, I can do this’, but it’s personal to Hacktivist as well. With what we’ve been through, a lot of other bands might have broken up, but we’re back with this new record and a new dynamic, which even I think is great and I’m super self-critical. As long as you’re alive and still breathing, your core is armoured and protected by something. This song is a reminder to stay strong.”
