Even 18 solid years deep into their career, New York based hardcore boys Stray From The Path have continued to deliver energy, passion, and purpose time-and-time again in their work and their live shows.
Now, the band have announced that they’ll be releasing that burning live energy captured onto a live record, performed throughout their tour across the UK and mainland Europe earlier this year.
The aptly titled ‘Smash ‘Em Up: Live In Europe 2019’ is set for release on May 17th 2019 through their new label home at UNFD.
Speaking further on the live album, the band had this to say.
“We’ve wanted to do a live record for years now, but the stars really never aligned for it. An opportunity presented itself on our latest tour supporting While She Sleeps, and we were fortunate enough to be able to make it happen. This album takes places across Mainland Europe and the United Kingdom, with each song performed in some of our favourite cities on Earth. This record is live, unedited, no backing tracks, and all songs are performed and written by the people in this band. Thank you to Julien Delcroix, Florent Salfati, Moritz Hartmann, Daniel Gray, UNFD and Sumerian Records for their assistance in making this happen. All of the band’s royalties from this live album are going to be donated to the Hardcore Help Foundation in perpetuity.”
