UK grime-metal quintet Hacktivist have revealed a new take on their single ‘Reprogram’, originally released in 2019. The new version, which features on their eagerly anticipated upcoming album Hyperdialect, sees Hacktivist‘s new lineup put a fresh spin and shine on their earlier material, with new instrumentation throughout.
Hacktivist co-vocalist Jot Maxi comments:
“There’s a double meaning to this one. Society needs reprogrammed, Hacktivist has been reprogrammed, so if you’re listening and you’re vibing out to it, have a little think about what you might need to do in your own life to reprogram – to make yourself like yourself better, or to have less regret.
“Society needs a reboot, our band has had a reboot, so why don’t you? At the same time, it’s got this little science fiction story within it, about a future that breaks down and actually needs reprogrammed from zero. In an ideal world, hopefully, we will have all reprogrammed before anything like that happens to us for real.”
Hacktivist’s new studio album Hyperdialect will be released on 18 June 2021 via UNFD, and is available to pre-order here. Check out album tracks ‘Armoured Core’ featuring Kid Bookie here and ‘Planet Zero’ here.
Hacktivist recently announced a special one-off London headline show to celebrate the release of Hyperdialect. Set to take place on 29th July 2021 at London’s Signature Brew, support will come from rising artist Kid Bookie who features on the band’s single ‘Armoured Core’.
Hacktivist are set to play a one-off London release show in July with support from Kid Bookie, and will also bring Hyperdialect to life on festival stages later this year, having been confirmed to appear at RADAR Festival, Bloodstock and Slam Dunk Festival.
