Void of Vision have announced and released their punishing new EP Disturbia today via UNFD. A smashing return the the roots of the Melbourne band, the first single lifted from the EP is “Ghost In The Machine”, a brutal and relentless slice of classic hardcore rendered with a new-school twist. The single was was written during the band’s debut European tour during a watershed moment.
According to frontman Jack Bergin, Disturbia EP is the most honest piece of work he has ever been involved in. The title and concept of Disturbia comes from a time when Bergin was in a state of flux and trying to fit in wherever he found himself. “Over the past year, I haven’t really been in a place which I could call ‘home’. I’d found myself lost numerous times and had to revisit a lot of dark places I never wanted to reflect back upon to do so. The term ‘Disturbia’ is coined as the dark side of a neighbourhood, a place I became all too familiar with.
“There is no particular theme for the EP, this was really for an experience I wanted myself to have, seeking the hopeful relief of facing my own demons. In the most unselfish way possible, I wrote this EP for myself, because I needed to.”
Void of Vision have had a busy year on the road, playing with everyone from I Prevail and Make Them Suffer to Body Count. Later this month, Void of Vision will head out on a co-headline tour with Graves, then will kick off the year at UNIFY 18 before jumping on a plane back to Europe and the UK supporting Miss May I.
