MUGSHOT Announces New EP, “Cold Will”, Out Nov 3rd

Hard-hitting, outspoken West Coast metalcore trio MUGSHOT has announced plans to release a new EP, “Cold Will,” on November 3rd with their new label Pure Noise Records. The furious 5-track, neck-snapping record is an uninhibited commentary on sociopolitical travesties infecting the country, set to the tone of merciless rage and crushing riffs.

Commenting on the EP, the band says:

“‘Cold Will’ is crafted by the pains of life: Abuse, depression, manipulation, trauma, and other existential themes that present themselves as the rudder that directionally steers this record’s “ship.” Lyrical themes are met by and married with the crushing weight of dissonant riffs and frenetic drum patterns that further push the listener into this mental space of this record’s daunting thoughts and overall aggression. The hardcore inspired metal record consists of a frenzy of chaotically heavy riffs, abrupt tempo changes, and pure unbridled anger that all coalesce into one definitive statement. This record serves as the callout to any abusive person that has manipulatively used their power or title to take advantage of another. And to the people who we’ve lost because of these types of actions – this record is dedicated to them. When one’s voice is lost due to the distortions of life – our responsibility should be to amplify their voice and bring awareness to it.”

Today, MUGSHOT reveals the turbulent new single, “Life’s Debt,” which is accompanied by the music video seen here:

MUGSHOT adds about the new track:

“‘Life’s Debt’ is a commentary on the American economic and justice systems. The cycles of abuse, manipulation, and general lack of humanity that the puppeteers of these systems have bolstered to justify their agendas has ruined us all. Corporations view us as if we are animals – products at their disposal – resorting to making us all into convenient cogs within their machines. This song serves as a wake up call to us, the people who are coerced and forced to exist within these broken systems that continuously cater to entities that uphold gentrification, systematic racism, and nationalistic campaigns. Because if their pockets are running low, you already know ours are empty. And if they’re hungry, then we’re the ones who starve.”
