Quebec City’s hardcore scene trailblazers GET THE SHOT have shared the video for the new single “Deathbound.” Watch it here.
“‘Deathbound’ is our primitive answer to years of accumulated hatred and anger towards the lowest forms of humankind that crossed our way,” says vocalist JP Lagacé. “After more than a decade as band, we experienced our fair share of deception and betrayal. Now is the time to settle the score and make the scum of the earth afraid again.”
He continues, “Nietzsche once said that nothing in life consumes a man more quickly than the passion of resentment. Well, this song is all about vengeance and is nothing more than a cathartic attempt to give sense to this anger while turning it into self-elevating power rather than decadent weakness.”
The song also features a cameo by Rob Watson of Lionheart fame.
As with No Peace In Hell (2014) and Infinite Punishment (2017), Get the Shot continue exploring new territories of extreme music, while sticking to its roots and its fierce DIY approach to music. Over countless tours across the globe, the band has taken inspiration from many bands along the way and refined its sound, while also taking influence from some of the top heavy artists such as Obituary, Cannibal Corpse, and Machine Head. After more than 500 concerts on three continents, including some on the biggest international stages such as Hellfest, Jera On Air, Summerbreeze, and Groezrock, the five members remain committed to the core values of authenticity, integrity, and equality at the heart of the hardcore movement, while addressing with disillusioned realism the flaws of an era defined by blind individualism.
The truth is what we get with Get the Shot: straight forward, no sugar coating. As brutal and cruel as reality can be, the ability to confront and overcome it depends on our ability to face it head-on.
Stay tuned for more news on the band’s fourth album.
