Antelope Valley, CA – Hardcore Punk Rock band SHIIVA has announced the release of their new single “Cyclone”, out today on all platforms. The song is off the band’s upcoming EP “Cyclone” out on August 12th via Wiretap Records on Digital / and Cyclone 12” Compilation LP later this year via Wiretap / Another City Records.
Vocalist Brillo Ward says of the track: “Resonating from the full construct of gender neutrality, The new single Cyclone provides the not so common idea of what it means to be a human being, trapped in between masculinity and femininity as well as what it means to be labeled too macho or too soft. With its flammable fast rhythmic hardcore punk instrumentals, Cyclone demonstrates the significance of burning down old traditional Gender Perspectives and barriers, and replacing them with the true age of freedom of expression that everyone should be guaranteed. It’s time to let the past die.”
