Independent hardcore band Grand Collapse premiered its latest single last week.

The band premiered its sociopolitically charged song ‘Without Let or Hindrance‘ July 21. The song is the second from the band’s forthcoming album, Empty Plinths. The album the band’s third) is scheduled for release Aug. 6 through Epidemic Records, TNS Records, Don’t Trust The Hype Records, Mass Prod., and Ultra Vinyl. The album’s lead single, ‘Panic Room,’ was released July 20.

The song’s intense musical arrangement is an adrenaline-fueled composition whose guitar arrangement, heavy bass and drums, and powerhouse vocals collectively makes the song comparable to works from the likes of ‘Propagandhi, Conflict, and Bane.

The lyrical theme that accompanies the song’s musical arrangement is just intense in its commentary about certain policies held by the British government.

Front man “Calvin” talked about the song’s theme during a recent interview.

“On the inside of a British passport it reads: “Her Britannic Majesty’s sectary of state requests and requires in the Name of Her Majesty all those whom it may concern to allow the bearer to pass freely without let or hindrance, and to afford the bearer such assistance and protection as may be necessary.” For a Country that is so actively hostile to anyone coming here, including refugees, I find this statement astounding,” he said. British identity, which is steeped in Empire, is a pathetic shell of itself and watching these tossers hold on desperately to the tyranny of the past is cringe worthy.

In other news, Grand Collapse has scheduled a series of tour dates in support of its new album. The tour is scheduled to launch Aug. 14 in Bristol, UK and to run through Sept. 22 in Sunderland, UK. Another, later date is scheduled for Nov. 13 in Newport, UK.
