Minneapolis-based trio CITY OF THE WEAK provoke listeners to evaluate their stance on the current state of political and social affairs with their brand new single, “United Hate Division.” The rousing single was released last Friday (April 23) across all digital platforms in conjunction with the premiere of its satirical music video unveiled by MXDWN. “‘United Hate Division’ is a hard-hitting track combining elements of metal, hard-rock and pop punk…” notes MXDWN. “The song is political without polarizing itself into left or right, instead expressing the opinion that many Americans feel – that both sides of the system are out for themselves.”
“United Hate Division” was mixed by Chris Collier (Korn, Prong) and produced by Brandon Friesen (The HU, The Kooks, Billy Ray Cyrus) whom CITY OF THE WEAKrecently enlisted to record their upcoming yet-to-be-titled sophomore album due this fall.
“We had a blast getting really creative and chaotic with this video,” shares vocalist Stef w/ an ‘F.’ “The concept shines a light on how divided our country currently is and reminisces how easily we once came together over something as simple as a Netflix series.”
