Today, we’re premiering the new 5-track EP, Trauma, from Hostile Array. The Frederick, Maryland-based Post-Hardcore band will be formally releasing the album tomorrow, May 19th. Trauma fuses early 2000’s Post-Hardcore with modern Pop-centric Rock to create a release consisting of songs dedicated to the various mental health struggles each member of the band has dealt with.
Vocalist Brendan Frey had the following to say about the new album:
“This EP is a collection of singles that we felt belonged together in context. Each song was written as a way to process the trauma and associated mental health struggles several of us have shared over the years. Working on these songs was not only lyrically therapeutic, but creatively as well. We really tried to challenge ourselves to experiment with our sound and not worry about holding ourselves to any specific genre expectations.”
