Long-running Filipino hardcore band Piledriver have released the 10″ version of their most recent EP entitled ‘Constant Battles’. The vinyl is coming out on UK-based label Engineer Records.
Here’s the full write up:
“Hardcore was never about where you’re from. Hardcore was, and is, all about energy, a shared spirit of drive and focus, the adrenaline fuelled excitement and intensity of shows, a global network of like-minded individuals and music that makes you want to sing along until your lungs burst, your ears bleed and it feels like you’ve got nothing left to give. And then getting up and doing it all over again when the next song starts.
Constant Battles, the new five-track EP (5 track CD, six track 10” vinyl) from Laguna’s favorite Hardcore sons, Piledriver proves that it doesn’t matter where you’re from, all that matters is what’s in your heart.
Hitting a Brooklyn-bound subway train, Constant Battles feels like it was recorded in a previously hidden and unknown basement of CBGB’s. Its beat-down riddled savagery, mosh-laden anthems and infectious sing-a-long choruses make you think of Queens rather than the Philippines and demonstrate that New York is more than just a place; it’s a state of mind.
Piledriver have been bringing the hardcore noise for over twenty years now. They know it’s a Constant Battle.”
