Born Free, Melbourne hardcore outfit signed to Resist Records, are back! Returning to the fold after a reasonable absence from the scene, they are today announcing a brand new single, ‘Blinded’. The single will see its release this Friday March 15 on all good digital platforms and streaming outlets. The single is the first cut from a forthcoming record – with more details to be revealed very soon.
They are also off to Newcastle’s Hamilton Station Hotel on Friday March 23 to headline Last Ride Records‘ 2019 Showcase show, alongside Ill Natured, Primitive Blast, Caged Existence and more, with tickets available on the door.
The new album was recorded in Winter 2018 at Black Lodge Studios (old three phase studio) in Brunswick, Melbourne with Mike Deslandes (from Melbourne’s blackened Rock ‘N’ Roll outfit High Tension). The new record is the first from the band to feature new member Josh Manitta (Carpathian, Warbrain) – who has brought on a more layered and melodic style to their previous 2015 album Sorrow, and is a natural progression musically from their Upon my Head tape, released in 2017. The band has further utilised vocalist Nathan’s clean singing, while also creating what is their heaviest album to date, yet more structured and more melodic.
