The members of the Baltimore trio Holy Tongues are no strangers to turmoil. All three previously served time in Ruiner, one of the most vicious hardcore acts of the ’00s. But Weak People, Holy Tongues’ upcoming debut album, simmers more than it slams. On the song “92,” debuted here, the group contains and internalizes an eruption of rage and regret, compressing it into a knot of blackened punk and then swallowing it whole.
Weak People will be released August 5 via Melotov Records.
