“It’s fast and ugly and ignorant and deeply satisfying.” – Stereogum

“Their frontman has the voice of a human tornado, a distinctly raspy register that sounds like it could yank a house out of its foundation and into his orbit.” Revovler

Chicago hardcore band Kharma has been pummeling audiences with their ferocious brand of hardcore since 2015. The band has recently announced their new album, A World Of Our Own, due out April 12th on Flatspot Records. Working with Jon Markson at The Animal Farm (Regulate, Jivebomb), Kharma set out to record their most colossal album yet, calling on their diverse influences and deep relationship with the Chicago scene to stack the album with ten songs that showcase their explosive growth throughout the years.

Today, the band shares a new single “By Any Means,” brimming with angular riffs and pulverizing drums. Jordan Moten’s powerful vocals are joined by Regulate’s Sebastian Paba, as the pair’s gripping delivery builds off the ferocious wall of sound. It’s a crushingly heavy track driven by a strong message, as Moten states:

“‘By Any Means’ is a very important song to me. It’s actually the first song that was written for this record. Being Black in America is tiptoeing every day of your life with the knowledge that one perceived wrong move could be your last. This song is a mission statement that sometimes it takes more than words to make people see where we’re coming from.”

You can listen to “By Any Means” HERE and A World Of Our Own is available for preorder now through Flatspot Records.

Kharma is directly influenced by their city, from the legends of their scene to the daily circumstances that inform their lyrics. On A World Of Our Own, Kharma is taking the listener through the ebb and flow of life. The band gave the first glimpse into their world on 2016’s self-released LP, Survival, followed up by 2018’s Moment of Violence, leading to their 2020 EP, Most Dangerous Game, out through Flatspot Records. On each release, Kharma has delivered uncompromising, reality-driven hardcore that A World Of Our Own expands on.

Kharma is Jordan Moten – Vocals, Andrew Perez – Guitar, Brian Pilla – Guitar, and Bryce Tollner – Drums.
