UK genre-defying quartet Borders have released their new single / video ‘Suffer’, the band’s third release on Arising Empire.
On the single, the band comment: “‘Suffer’ is a protest anthem about the state of our ruling class, politicians, and the 1% who openly break laws while they face little to no consequences from the police. These same police also power trip through covert prejudice towards people of colour.
“We all want to stand up and do something about it and while it’s very easy to ‘sit back and neglect it’ this is a call to arms to stop letting yourself suffer at the hands of the pigs in charge.”
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.
