Today we have the pleasure of announcing yet another addition to the family of FtLP Records, Fort Collins, CO’s VICTIM CULTURE. Yes, it’s associated with this website and we’re pushing our own agenda, but if we’re not using our outlet to make a difference…wtf are we doing at all??!!
So with great excitement we are proud to throw out the song / video for “HOSTILE” and announce an 8 song EP that FtLP Records is beyond honored to have a hand in. Yes, we’re making anything to do with these guys all in caps because, well, it’s just that awesome!
Video hot, edited and produced by Lucas Wood and Jeremy Long by Obscurus Film Co.
Watch “HOSTILE” below:
The band itself is a three-piece powerhouse that has made an impression on the founder / owner of FtLP Records Johnny Wilson with a force. We’ll let him explain…
Johnny Wilson FtLP Records:
I’ve been lucky enough to have known these individuals for quite some time. A lot of our relationship was based on previous bands / projects that I also hugely endorsed, but with this new project a fire was lit and I had one of those experiences you don’t get often in music. I immediately noticed the raw energy, the technical aspect, the strength in song writing and the force that this was to become. Most of this was based on a live show that the band kept saying “wasn’t their best” and of course I threw all that bullshit aside because I saw the underlying truth. After I was sent the final masters, I am not going to sugarcoat it, I immediately started texting relentlessly to the band and going off on a detailed explanation of how much this EP brought back all the reasons I’m into punk as it stands in my life today and as it was when I discovered it. I started to get the feeling I could certainly throw a genre at it, or several, but it wasn’t what I felt about it. There are elements of this, that, the other thing but it isn’t any of those things. That’s what got me, It’s Victim Culture and in essence, a standout musical endeavor and something you don’t find every day. Having me be their advocate and backing was a no brainer. I am absolutely proud of this album and have texted them 10 million times to tell them why. They are excited, I am excited and we all 100% believe in this release. I’d say I’m looking forward to what everyone thinks, but to be honest, it won’t matter and that is exactly why it’s something I will always be proud of.
Victim Culture S/T 8 Song EP will be released digitally on FtLP Records on April 21st, 2017. There are plans for physical but nothing solid at this point. Those details will be coming soon. Check out other details below.
