Rising Reykjavik, Iceland hardcore band Great Grief recently released their debut, full-length album, Love, Lust and Greed, with No Sleep Records. Today, the band has partnered with NewNoiseMagazine.com to reveal a music video for the record’s latest single “Pathetic.” Watch it below.
"This song originally started out as a long winded view on Iceland’s hookup culture. But as I was writing it, someone extremely close to me went through the hell of being drugged twice in a year when trying to have a good time in downtown Reykjavík. It was hard to be on the sidelines. Being in such a small isolated country and seeing such fucked up things brought Icelandic nightlife into a new light for me. I beg anyone who reads this, or listens to the song, to consider watching out for those around them. Make sure the people in your life are safe." - Great Grief
Recently signed to No Sleep Records, Great Grief plans to take their unique approach to hardcore international as buzz about the band continues to spread like wildfire. Love, Lust and Greed surely sets the scene with 11 intense tracks that will undoubtedly provide the soundtrack for some wild shows in the band’s near future.
