When it comes to the more groove-driven side of the metallic hardcore sound, Fury of Five's influence is undeniable.

Formed in the early '90s, the New Jersey outfit's No Reason to Smile (1996) and At War with the World (1998) albums cemented their legacy in the mosh patheon.

It's been over two decades since Fury of Five released new material, but as the year comes to a close, the Garden State troupe have announced their return. 2023 will see the release of a five-song EP ominously tited Half Past Revenge.

Though the EP won't be out till early next year, No Echo is premiering one of its songs, "WxAxRx," for you today. Shot by Jen Bennett and the band, and directed by Kim Cangemi, check out the song's music video below:

Fury of Five vocalist James Ismean shared the following about the song:

“W.A.R. is an acronym for 'We Are Ready'—meaning we will die for what we love and we’re ready to do whatever we have to do to protect it. It has nothing to do with being a tough guy, but everything to do with being strong in your convictions and standing up to anyone who threatens your morals and integrity."

"W.A.R" will hit digital outlets on December 30th (pre-save here). 

Half Past Revenge will be available on CD and digital in early 2023 via Upstate Records.
