‘Not Through Blood’ LP out 9/8 on DAZE.

Long Island, NY hardcore band Pain Of Truth have dropped their crushing new single ‘Under My Skin’. Focused on finding the positives in cutting ties with toxic friendships, the track boasts a repetitive stomping rhythm that eventually forms into an all out heavy breakdown that is set to incite a ruthless mosh. Michael Smith’s attitude-filled vocals meet with the gruffness of Criminal Instinct’s Josiah Hoeflinger for an intense dual vocal attack. The song marks the second single, following ‘Actin’ Up’ from Pain Of Truth’s debut full-length ‘Not Through Blood’ set for release September 8th on DAZE. Fresh off a European tour, the band will head to Los Angeles’ Sound and Fury Festival next week, followed by Philly’s This Is Hardcore on August 5th. Pain Of Truth also recently announced a tour in Japan this September including an appearance at Bloodaxe Festival. Full dates below.

Pain Of Truth is Michael Smith (vocals), Nik Hansen (guitar), Ridge Rhine (guitar), Zach Stache (bass) and Nick Barker (drums).
