Official press release:
Portuguese hardcore outfit Reality Slap is preparing to release their crushing new Limitless EP through WAR Records in January. Combining the best of old-school aggression with a modern hardcore vibe, Reality Slap‘s songs are full of tight riffs, heavy grooves, and they always pack a massive punch. The members of the band are no strangers to the punk and hardcore scene, as collectively, they have been touring across Europe in their previous bands before forming Reality Slap in 2009. After the release of their demo and first EP that year, they recorded and released their first full-length album Necks & Ropes in 2012, the album featuring appearances from Justice Tripp (Trapped Under Ice, Angel Du$t) and Winston McCall (Parkway Drive).
In 2016, Reality Slap signed to WAR Records, owned by Andrew Kline of Los Angeles hardcore band, Strife. The band refined their sound and recorded their strongest material to date, Limitless, at Eyeball Studios in Portugal. Limitless bridges the gap between the old and the new, merging the enduring influence of DMIZE, Outburst, Breakdown, Cro-Mags, and Bad Brains mixed with modern bands like Turnstile, Backtrack, Down to Nothing, and Terror.
WAR Records will issue Limitless on vinyl, CD, and digital on January 13th, 2017. An official video from the album is being prepared for release in the coming days, with more singles and videos to follow into the new year. A brief trailer is posted below:
