American metal band Sour Times are back with their new track/video of People Over Profit. The track is the lead track off their new EP, Awaken The Voiceless which is available on all major platforms today.
Joseph Izayea had this to say; “I’m stoked to announce the release of the new Sour Times EP “Awaken The Voiceless” on most digital platforms today. Our new video release “People over Profit” dropping on the Do Work channel also marks the elation in the Sour Times camp of seeing this record finally come to light. This whole endeavor was a long time in the making, and we worked hard to tap into the sentiments of anger, fear, and isolation most felt living through the pandemic and the never ending onslaught of war-mongering from the “profit above all” minded powers that be.Taking into the fold Chris Matthews on guitar and Monte Arnstam behind the drums catalyzed a whole new ethos for Sour Times, bringing out the very best in Ben and I, and pushing the whole project into new territory. I’m pumped, and I hope you all find the record worth the wait!”

The fierce chemistry between Ben Reigle, a multi-disciplined musician and noteworthy artist coupled with the thunderous roars of mad-scientist Joseph Izayea (FROM UNDER CONCRETE KINGS, SEEKING SIRENS) and the welcome addition of guitarist Chris Matthews (ex- TETSUO and ex- THE SEARCH FOR) meld together in an almost peculiar fashion, tapping influences of modern metal masters like GOJIRA and WHITECHAPEL while channeling the spirits of Old-School New York Hardcore. The blend screams raw, unbridled honesty in a sober-eyed look at the state of humanity today.With the coming release of Awaken The Voiceless, the band now looks to find its place in the performance world with tenacity and vigor.
