NYC noise duo Uniform have premiered their new track “The Killing of America” via Bullet Media. The exceptionally aggressive track is off of their upcoming full-length, Wake in Fright, and features dissonant pummeling rhythms and harsh vocals while tackling the issue of gun violence. Check it out after the break.
Singer Mike Berdan tells Bullet Media:
“The title is taken from this Leonard Schrader movie called ‘The Killing of America’. It’s a documentary about gun violence in America in the early ’80s. We started writing it around the time the Atlanta shooting happened, and we were hearing about a new mass shooting every day. This was just our way of speaking to that.”
