More politically charged and pissed off than ever before thanks to the latest US presidential campaigns, New York’s Stray From The Path have spat it all right back in our faces with their brand new track, ‘The House Always Wins’, their first new offering since their 2015 LP, ‘Subliminal Minds’.
You can stream and watch the video for ‘The House Always Wins’ below:
Along with the above video, the band also released a statement regarding their thoughts on the election and what ‘The House Always Wins’ is about, along with when we can all expect to hear a new Stray From The Path record. You can read the statement below:
“It almost seems that this election was begging for us to take a swing at it. We watched Trump bid for the Republican candidacy against people like Cruz and Christie… we watched Hillary actually steal the Democratic candidacy from a guy who was drawing millions of people around the country, and funding his campaign off of millions of donations averaging at $27, from real people… while Hillary was drawing crowds of less people than Stray From The Path can draw at a random show in Tennessee?
It was wrong. These two candidates are wrong. A two party program is wrong. We have a circus going on while Native Americans at the Dakota Access Pipeline are victims of terrorism at the hands of the oil companies that purchase this election. Not a word about it from anybody. No help.
This band has always been an outlet for our frustrations with this planet, and we couldn’t wait for our next full-length to get this one out. There are people who feel the same way as us, and I hope this song can open some minds up about the people they look to as leaders… ask themselves… do they actually give a shit about my life? Or, would they sell me out in a second to further their agenda? The answers are not always pretty, and sometimes hard to accept… but in the end of the day, The House Always Wins.
In the studio Feb 2017 with Will Putney. New album is on the way.”
