Manchester musical activists HOMETRUTHS have revealed a new single and music video for the song ‘Genocide’.
Taken from their debut EP Open Your Eyes, set for release on 3 March 2017 via CI Records, ‘Genocide’ delivers a rapid emphatic punch of in-your-face hardcore, where the band’s outspoken disappointment and anger at the wealth, corruption and greed in government is fully emphasised.
Frontman Gaz Davies told Metal Hammer:
“Although the song is not specifically directed at Donald Trump, given the current situation we thought it was appropriate. We have yet another person moving into a position that allows manipulation, corruption and greed. We do not find the current government systems to be beneficial, effective or in any way practical. We believe that the only way we aren’t going to continue having president after president with no real change to the system itself is to start again.”
HOMETRUTHS garnered attention recently for putting up propaganda posters around the UK depicting images of Donald Trump, Nigel Farage and Pope Francis with lacerations around their eyes, with the hashtag #OpenYourEyes scrawled alongside. The response started almost immediately and has become synonymous with the band’s voice and message.
“The best way to achieve this is to enlighten people to what is going on in the world. It’s the aim of the entire EP. People are not stupid if non-bias evidence is presented to them and they are allowed to form their own opinion, it is only a matter of time before people start to realise that there is something wrong with the world.”
It’s time to take the power back and take notice of HOMETRUTHS.
