UK’s grime metal merchants Hacktivist have dropped a brand new video for “No Way Back” lifted from their debut album Outside The Box which was released earlier this year via UNFD. The video for “No Way Back” comes just as the boys touch down in Australia to tour with Enter Shikari, which kicks off tonight in Melbourne and will take in stops in all the major cities around the country.

Directed by Hacktivist’s multi-talented bass player Josh Gurner, “No Way Back” calls out society for complacency in the face of broken system.

“No way back is a reaction to the sad state of affairs we find ourselves in today. The general population are realising we have created a corrupt and non-sustainable society of inequality, overconsumption and misinformation, but are too familiar with the status quo to unite and influence change towards a solution.

Most of us are content with being sold ideals of distraction and instant gratification. We acknowledge that there is a broken system, but will quickly dismiss hideous revelations or opportunities for progression because “it’s always been that way”.

If we keep clinging to this mentality, there will be no way back.

When creating the video for the track, I wanted to capture some of these comfortable ideals, contrasting with the dark and unnerving serving of reality that people like ourselves try to project out to those who are paying attention.

Once you acknowledge the truth, would you choose the path of struggle towards change? Or would you take the path of least resistance, and keep your eyes closed to the world crumbling around you?”
