Searing rap metalcore band Stray From The Path have newly dropped an official music video for their latest single “III” online. The group previously commented of that track:

“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.”

The song is taken from the band’s forthcoming album “Euthanasia“, due out September 09th.
