Making noise together over a decade ago, the guys from Rock Bottom are back with hardcore crossover in mind.

Formed all those years ago in a basement in suburban Philadelphia, the quintet first appeared in the 2010s. Born II Hate 7 inches, eventually releasing a few more EPs and a full album, Down with the devilseveral years later.

Incorporating thrash metal influences into the approach, Rock Bottom’s guitar riffs and driving energy should appeal to hardcore kids and metalheads alike.

Awakening from their slumber, Rock Bottom is gearing up for the release of their second album, Speedway. No Echo has teamed up with the band to create “Xiphoid Process”, a thrashtastic track from the upcoming LP:

Rock Bottom singer Dion Barrella shared the following about the song:

“‘Xiphoid Process’ is about controlling your own destiny. Not letting fantasy or an alignment of stars dictate how your life is going or where it is going. It’s also about when I ordered a sandwich at the chicken without mayo and they gave it to me with mayo I ate it on principle but should have asked for a new sandwich.

Speedway will be released on September 30 via Knife Hits Records (digital and cassette pre-order).
