Stick To Your Guns has signed to SharpTone Records and is now streaming the crushing two-track EP, Invisible Rain. The whole thing clocks in at just under five minutes and will kick your ass clean into next week. Invisible Rain was engineered by Beau Burchell (Saosin) and Stick To Your Guns guitarist Chris Rawson with mixing and mastering by Jeff Dunne (Knocked Loose, Currents).

“‘The alienation from the self is a consequence of being a mechanistic part of a social class, the condition of which estranges a person from their humanity,'” wrote Stick To Your Guns vocalist Jesse Barnett.

“This EP is about the theory of alienation. The ways in which we have been alienated from ourselves, our work, our lives and ultimately each other. How are we to care about anything beyond ourselves when we ourselves are in a constant state of survival. The consequence of this is the society that currently envelopes us. One that preys on our decencies and our good will and turns it against us. There is a lot to despair about in today’s world but our future has yet to be written. We can either write it or it will be written for us.

“I want to thank SharpTone Records for believing in our vision and for helping to continue to cultivate hardcore and metalcore music. Shawn has been involved with STYG since its inception and I know we are in good hands.

“‘The old world is dying, the new one struggles to be born. Now is the time of monsters.'”
