Backtrack aren’t merely carrying the torches of their New York hardcore forbearers—they’re starting some fires of their own.
An imposing force looming over the underground music scene for nearly a decade, Backtrack have cemented their name in hardcore lore one record, tour, and diatribe at a time. Four years following their combustible sophomore LP Lost In Life, Backtrack are bolting back into the spotlight with Bad To My World (November 17, Bridge Nine).
A handful of years may have passed since Backtrack’s last offering, but the five-piece sounds more indignant than ever. Written over the course of three years, Bad To My World spawned 10 tracks flying in the face of any and all barriers—physical, mental, thematic, and beyond.
Bad To My World delves into the fluxing dynamics gnawing at Backtrack as a band and as a clique. New recruit Steven DiGenio behind the kit and Danny Smith helming on bass, Backtrack has settled into its most formidable lineup yet—progress that can be seen and heard. Nick Jett (Terror), who stoked a radically collaborative approach in the studio, once again producing while Dean Baltulonis (Madball, No Warning) manned the boards at Wild Arctic. Denoting the most cooperative phase of the band’s existence, there’s a piece of everyone invested in Bad To My World, and it shows in both volume and composition.Whether it be worldly discontent or personal triumph, Backtrack will never be short for material—or passion.
