Decibel has premiered Roanoke a new video from Philadelphia based quintet, Gloves Off. Roanoke is the first single from the bands forthcoming Fast Break! Records (Wisdom In Chains, Drowning) debut, Born Broken dropping on September 21st. The track is possessed of the dissonant and thick metallic hardcore that the band excels at.
With a tongue-in-cheek homage to 80s VHS era slasher flicks, visually Roanoke is horror at a basement show. However speaking on the inspiration for the song, Cody (vocals) said the following I was inspired by all of the lost civilizations I have learned about and how they met their demise. I related them to the modern world and how we are killing ourselves off at a rapid rate and maybe to truly be free, would mean to not be meant for this world at all.
