Rule Them All share new single ‘Uneasy Faith’ off split with Kill Your Idols
Building more anticipation for their upcoming split with Kill Your Idols, Long Island hardcore band Rule Them All have shared new single, ‘Uneasy Faith’.
The track is as blunt as it is melodic, brimming with dynamic riffs and lyrics centered around the internal struggle of taking a leap of faith. For the split, both bands recorded with Kill Your Idols drummer Anthony Corallo, with KYI’s tracks being mastered by Will Killingsworth (Orchid) and Rule Them All mixed and mastered with Brian McTernan (Battery, Be Well). Released through Flatspot Records, the split is available for both digital (out March 4th) and vinyl (out July 22nd). Speaking on ‘Uneasy Faith’ vocalist Jon Gusman states:
“‘Uneasy Faith’ is a song simply about taking a chance on something even if you don’t have all the fine details worked out. Sometimes, the only thing you have behind you when you take a leap of faith is belief in yourself and even then it’s not enough. It deals with the idea that expectation can hinder your progress and can even deter you from leaping all together.”

About Rule Them All:
Rule Them All was created with one goal in mind: deliver gimmick-free hardcore that speaks truth to power. The band was formed in 2017 by Richie Armour and Jon Gusman, who have since completed the lineup with members of diverse experience that spans a wide range of musical disciplines. Their carefully constructed and deliberately paced songs call to mind both the emotional intelligence of classic D.C. hardcore and the raw aggression of the Long Island scene they call home. The result is a confrontational blend of vintage and modern styles that force the listener to reckon with their own notions of what it means to be independent in today’s fractured society. Sonically, Rule Them All expertly synchronize hard-hitting drums with harmonic riffs to form an unshakeable foundation over which the message in the vocals can be easily heard and understood crystal clear. This shines on their latest EP, ‘Dreams About…’ and upcoming split with fellow Long Island punk act Kill Your Idols (both released by Flatspot Records). The band’s potent blend of hardcore has lead way to an evergrowing fanbase and sharing the stage with acts like Terror, Turnstile, Gorilla Biscuits, and more.
