Baltimore based hardcore band Old Lines has debuted a new track called “The Hunt(ed)” today with BrooklynVegan.com. The track is featured on the band’s upcoming record, No Child Left Behind, which is due out on October 14th via No Sleep Records. Fans can pre-order the record now at https://nosleeprecords.com/product/7340.
The outspoken band follows their recent premiere of “Traps” with a crushing song called “The Hunt(ed)” that takes aim at another atrocious problem that’s impacting our wildlife.
“The Hunt(ed) is a gut reaction to the sadness and rage of wolf hunting,” says vocalist Matt Taylor. “Not only have we demonized these animals, creating fear and promoting misinformation, but we have also transformed their systematic slaughter into a tragic display of human imperialism. Our collective desire to "conquer" nature, and infantile need to prove our superiority has only served to separate us from the natural world, and will become one more nail in our coffins when the tables turn. All living things in our world deserve a chance to live freely, and we will never find peace of any sort until we realize that.”
For the uninitiated, Old Lines use their music solely as a mouthpiece for their frustration and contempt for political, social and environmental corruption and destruction.
