If you were around for the ’90s hardcore scene, then you couldn’t have gotten far from the name Strife. The Southern California-based hardcore unit was one of the foremost bands pushing the metal-charged sound of the time, and now we are on the brink of their first new album in a decade. The Hundreds is partnering up with Strife to usher in this next chapter of the band’s story, one that is premised on bridging the old and new generations of the hardcore community. Aptly titled Witness A Rebirth, the album will be released worldwide on November 6th through 6131 Records. You can pre-order the record HERE or direct from iTunes.
The foundation for this partnership between The Hundreds and Strife is actually in friendships with singer Rick Rodney and guitarist Andrew Kline. I am proud to say that I was a teenaged fan myself decades back, and after having familiarized myself with the guys personally over the years (Rick is a Renaissance man of Street culture, from graphic design work with some of your favorite brands to his prolific photography; Andrew had a hand in founding Tradition and now, with the Soul Assassins brand), it’s been an honor to have it all come full-circle.
To kick off our collaboration, The Hundreds is very grateful and honored to world premiere the music video for “Torn Apart” off of the upcoming Witness a Rebirth right here on thehundreds.com:
