Portland, Maine hardcore band Cruel Hand has shared their new song recently. You can check out the stream for their song “Never Be Whole” below.
Vocalist Chris Linkovich commented:
Some backstory on the track: We had recorded [‘Never Be Whole‘] with Dean Baltulonis in NH and been sitting on it for a few months. I ran into Jay Reason at the Hatebreed show in Connecticut last month and he convinced me that the upcoming tour with Knocked Loose would be a perfect time to release it and that he’d help me along the way. Half thinking we’d never pull it off because of deadlines we still were able to defy all vinyl turn around rules and within just a matter of a couple weeks had our finished 7 inch single: ‘Never Be Whole‘ on Cheap Life Records 001.
Not only is it our first song in 3 years, its also the first release on our own label. The track has the heavy riffing that we’ve never strayed from plus the infectious chorus’s we’ve been known for in our latter releases. The track is Cruel Hand through and through and I think fits perfectly with the overall vibe of hardcore in 2019. The B side has a live version of ‘Under The Ice‘ from our album ‘Without A Pulse‘. Available on our upcoming tour with a wide release later in the year.
