Florida-based hardcore crossover outfit, Mindfield, have released their new single “Violent Nature” via a premiere with Kerrang. The lead single from their self-titled EP incorporates plenty of thrash influence while still keeping it short and sweet. “Violent Nature” is the first taste of Mindfield’s uniquely satisfying style since their 2018 EP Void of Illuminance and the quartet bursts right back out of the gate with their signature concoction of highspeed riffs, hardcore-leaning vocals, divebombs and a rewarding, heavy-as-hell ending. Mindfield is a burgeoning force in the Florida scene and are sure to turn some heads when their new self-titled EP drops on September 20th. The band has also announced a string of midwest tour dates with By Force that can be found below.
The Jacksonville, Florida quartet originally formed in 2015 and are heavily influenced by the likes of Merauder, All Out War, and Sepultura. Quickly following the release of their first EP, Perpetual Suffering, the band took to the road with All Out War and Incited. In the summer of 2018, they released their sophomore EP Void of Illuminance which built the foundation of their tasteful crossover appeal – best shown on the title track featuring guest vocals from Jon Whittle of Vatican. Since then, they have embarked on tours with Hoods and Lowered A.D. and appeared on a handful of fests in the U.S. They are set to release their new EP September 20th and show no signs of slowing down anytime soon. Digital pre-orders are available here.
