Hardcore rock band Locked In is back after a seven-year hiatus.
The band debuted its first new music in that time Monday in the form of its new EP Not Dead Yet. The EP’s release comes through Epidemic Records.
Locked In recorded and performed together from 2007-2013 before parting ways. After much time apart, the band ended up reuniting, but with a new lineup.
That new lineup played into the sound in the new EP, according to a statement from the band.
“We owe the sound of “Not Dead Yet” to the new lineup,” the statement reads. “We put a lot of each of us into it. We remained firm on our references, but we also let ourselves explore new territories.”
“This EP transcends everything we’ve done before and it denotes our fierce desire to come back,” the statement adds. “In fact, we were surprised by what we were able to come up with right off the bat, because if we think about our lives now, it might not be easy to feel inspired, to put in the necessary anger and to make sometimes bold choices, but once we got into the practice room together, everything seemed to work effortlessly. In some ways this EP (as well as the next one) is our lifeline. In such a dramatic year we were looking for answers and tried to give vent to our negativity as well.”
