Birds in Row — “Weary”

As hardcore withdraws back into thousands of local fastnesses to rethink and regroup, decent national releases like this one are rare. European bands have been holding down the scene’s bona fides for some time now, though—tough-guy mistranslations like pretty much anything in the Hardcore Worldwide video catalogue aside—and France’s Birds in Row is a prime example of post-hardcore’s lingering impact on the vast frontiers of the heavy music world. The band’s 2012 release You, Me, and the Violence was top-to-bottom quality. Personal War (October 30, Deathwish Inc.) promises more of the same.

“Weary” is a tantalizing taste of the forthcoming album. Watch below, pre-order above.
