XTRMST "Coward, Bow Your Head"

XTRMST "Coward, Bow Your Head"

AFI members Davey Havok and Jade Puget's new straight edge hardcore band XTRMST are throwing down the gauntlets in the latest leak from their impending self-titled album, a vicious tirade against anyone that broke the oath called "Coward, Bow Your Head."

The track is full of '90s noisecore-styled atonal riffery, à la Deadguy/Kiss It Goodbye, with Havok adding to the damage with damning cries against a turncoat ("you weaken us all"). There's a touch of melody to the midsection, but overall it's a fierce punch-up from the x'ed-up squadron.

You can check out the track down below, while XTRMST's debut LP is due out November 17 through Dim Mak Records.
