Rotting Out Premiere New Song “Stones”

Rotting Out have premiered a new song titled “Stones.” This track is from the band’s new album “Ronin,“ which will be released on April 10.

Walter Delgado commented:

“‘Stones‘ is a very aggressive and angry song. I started going to shows at a very young age, and in the place where I’m from, there’s a very ghetto and violent atmosphere. In the projects of Los Angeles, there’s a lot of gang activity, drug use, prostitution, violence, domestic abuse, and child abuse. This is what I was surrounded by. When I got into hardcore, it was cool because it didn’t involve all of that or glorify it.

Then, there was a point where I started to notice that certain bands or certain people in the hardcore scene adopted the style of being from the ghetto. They started glorifying the grim and the dirt — just negative things that shouldn’t be glorified, to begin with from ghettos when these people were not from there. […] This isn’t pretty and it’s not meant to be put on a pedestal.

It’s just a matter of the situation, and people are born into this situation unwillingly. It’s a big fuck you to everyone who tried to adopt this ‘cool swag ghetto child’ vibe when they themselves are from suburbia.”

The Acacia Strain Cancel Several Dates On North American Tour

The Acacia Strain have cancelled several dates on their North American tour with Rotting Out, Creeping Death, Chamber, and Fuming Mouth due to the coronavirus pandemic. The band commented:

“We are unfortunately forced to cancel our shows in Portland, Berkeley, and Los Angeles. Anaheim and all other shows are still on!”

Rotting Out Premiere New Song “Unforgiven”

Rotting Out have premiered a new song titled “Unforgiven.” This track is from the band’s new album “Ronin,“ which will be released on April 10.

Walter Delgado said the following about the new record:

“It’s been 7 years since our last LP. A lot has happened since: hard lessons, periods of isolation, weight of guilt, diagnosis, crippling realisation, absolute hopelessness and also absolute peace and calmness. The purpose for the image of the record is that there was a lot that was left unspoken and I danced around the darker moments and some were just buried completely.

I decided to reopen things that haven’t been open in almost 25 years and look it straight in the face. That old dusty mirror that shows me more than I’d like to see or remember. I’ve never been more proud of writing this record and nothing was left behind on my end. Some of these took more out of me than I’d like to admit. Nonetheless, I knew it was time to put it all out there.”

He also added the following about the new song:

“‘Unforgiven‘ was everything imprinted on me as a child from an abusive parent. Made to believe every bad experience was my own fault and unable to forgive myself for situations that were not only not my fault but far beyond my control. Now as an adult I try to undo and forgive myself for things I never even did, apologising for the actions of ghosts, feeling stuck like there’s no way out completely exhausted by guilt that doesn’t belong to me.”
