Over a year ago, California’s reigning kings of heavy hardcore, Lionheart, decided to call it quits. However, it wasn’t long before they realized that walking away was futile. The group has announced their return via the new single “Trial By Fire.” The song will be on their upcoming full-length Welcome To The West Coast II (out November 10), a sequel of sorts to one of their most acclaimed albums that brought forth a new era in California hardcore.
“When we started writing these songs we had no idea if they’d ever get released at all so there was no pressure, no timelines, and no expectations,” said the band. “We wrote whatever the fuck we wanted and we ended up with the best shit we’ve ever written. No gimmicks, no hype, no bullshit- ‘WTTWC II’ is pissed, heavy, and straight-up.”
