UK genre-defying quartet Borders and have released ‘NWWM’, their new single featuring US rap-metal band Dropout Kings. This is their second release on Arising Empire. Stream here: HERE

On the single, vocalist Jordan Olifent comments: “‘NWWM’, which stands for Nothing Wrong With Me, is a track all about battling the demons in your head. It’s written about me at my lowest point and how when everyone was counting me out and throwing me to the wolves, it took telling myself what nothing was wrong with me to overcome my problems. We’re glad the guys in Dropout Kings could join us for this one – we can’t wait to perform it for you live on our upcoming UK tour this July.”

Borders combine ferocious, hard-hitting metalcore with elements of hip-hop, grime, hardcore and alternative metal, completed with a dash of introspection and brazen, no-holds-barred atmosphere. The quartet are a young but driven collective hellbent on taking the heavy music community by storm with an onslaught of thought-provoking, sinister and brutally aggressive tracks. Built around an impetus that obliterates any notion of single-genre classification in favour of an immersive yet punishingly heavy experience, Borders continually push the limits of what’s expected from any band in the metalcore circuit.
From taking the UK’s live music scene by storm supporting legendary deathcore act Martyr Defiled on their last run to their immersive, conceptual and thought-provoking 2019 debut full length release Purify, the band are well on their way to making themselves a staple in the underground heavy music community – a goal sure to be achieved with their addition to Arising Empire’s ever-growing roster.
