Stray From The Path Premiere New Single “III”


Socially conscious rap metalcore band Stray From The Path have launched their new track “III” online. That song arrives as the first single from their tenth studio album, “Euthanasia“, out September 09th. That outing was produced and mixed by Will Putney (Body Count, Every Time I Die).

Speaking of this new cut, the band offered:

“We’ve always used our songs as an outlet to speak against oppression. It’s been close to 10 years, and now our third installment of the Badge & A Bullet series entitled ‘III‘ has the same target. Policing in the United States has always been rooted in racism, hate & violence. Public funding for police departments has skyrocketed since the 1980s.

The US now spends more than twice as much on police as it does social welfare programs. Many major cities spend over a third of their budgets on police. Despite the hundreds of billions of federal, state & local money poured into police departments & the corrections industry every year, there is little oversight. The outcomes have been fucking horseshit.

Over 1,000 people are killed every year by the police but despite comprising only 13% of the population, nearly half of all people killed by police are Black. Less than 1% of police officers who kill someone on the job are prosecuted. To be perfectly clear: there is no crime in this country where the punishment is execution on the spot extrajudicially by a cop.

The idea of justice in this country is a fucking joke. The only protecting and serving the police do in this country is protecting the wealthy, the powerful & capitalist interests while subjugating the marginalized & the working class.”
