In anticipation of their exciting new ‘Do Or Die’ LP, New York Hardcore luminaries Burn have premiered another track from the album. Titled “Dead Identity,” the song reinforces the profound legacy that Burn has left on the genre that they helped to form.
Commandeered by vocalist Chaka Malik and guitarist Gavin Van Vlack, Burn are responsible for pushing the boundaries of hardcore since their inception in 1990. After a lengthy hiatus followed by a 2016 EP release on the Bridge Nine label, the lineup was rounded out by the incredible rhythm section of Tyler Krupsky on bass and Abbas Muhammad on drums. Boasting the most tracks of any release in their catalog, ‘Do Or Die’ was engineered by Kurt Ballou (Converge) at God City Studios and mastered by Howie Weinberg (Slayer, Public Enemy, Sonic Youth). The 10-song album is a high-speed medley of infectious melody, hook-laden groove, and raw hardcore emotion.
