    After a blistering, well-received demo in 2016, Payday brings you 3 new tracks which will appear on their upcoming LP next year. This is London Straight Edge, harder than a sack of bricks, second to none. The title track starts with a pounding intro, followed by riffs that are ever more drenched in wrath and vengeance. Souring reverbed solos and dives wrap around a relentless rhythm section, which will have your veins throbbing with boiling blood as you see red in the pit. Fans of Confront and 90s Clevo hardcore will once again rejoice, and with the addition of a second guitarist, Payday have developed their sound to include sections which will get any early Integrity fans bristling. ‘Original Sin’ showcases an atmospheric gradually unfurling soundscape, with lyrics exploring minds corrupted. Straight Edge may be a sub-culture that has currently fallen out of favour in hardcore, drunk on it’s own stereotypes, but Payday scorch a path that has long been forgotten, and make it relevant in this confusing and ‘HyperNormalised’ world of today. Get ready, for “There’s nowhere to hide”.

    Members of Blind Authority and Arms Race.
