The day has come, our debut record is out for all the world to hear. There was a time when we thought this would never happen, but damn it feels good. We hope you like it and can’t wait to hear your feedback.
Proud to be able to announce the details of the debut Hacktivist album, Outside The Box, which will be released worldwide by UNFD (except for North America, where Rise Records do the honours) on Friday 4th March…accompanied by a small handful of intimate UK shows prior to the band’s headline European tour.
Recorded and produced by guitarist Timfy J throughout the seance half of 2015, Outside The Box features eight brand new H tracks, plus brand new re-recording of Elevate, False Idols, and Deceive & Defy (which also now features a new guest vocal, this time by Jamie from Heart Of A Coward).
Also among the new songs and guest vocals are the tracks Taken, which was co-written by and features Rou from Enter Shikari, and Rotten which features the Astroid Boys guys & Jot Maxi, who also wrote their own bars for the track.
Outside The Box is released on CD and digital download, plus limited edition coloured vinyl LP. A selection of album + shirt + tour ticket options are available from HTTP://WWW.HACKTIVIST.UK.COM/STORE and worldwide here: http://smarturl.it/OTBmerch, plus the album will be available from all good record stores and online retailers.
There’s a run of five small UK shows in the run-up to release date. buying tickets for any of these shows when combined with the album / bundle, means that you get money off the cost of your purchase.
