No Way To Live: “Abstract Eye” (Punknews Exclusive)

Today, Punknews is pleased to debut the new track by No Way To Live.

"Abstract Eye" is a jagged shard of hardcore. While the band takes a few cues from spastic math rock, they also settle into the classic, low, rumbling power of traditional hardcore. Here's a band that embraces the old school stomp as much as they strive to separate themselves from the retro-crew.

The song is off their upcoming self-titled EP. You can pre-order the EP right here. Meanwhile, check out "Abstract Eye" below, right now.
