After a short, 2-song EP released last year in Prologue (which served as an introduction of sorts), Los Angeles-based rock newcomers Havoc Faction have released a 3-song EP, Welcome To The Fight. The EP, which you can stream in full below via Spotify, was just released on Friday – and if you’re into mid-2000’s alternative rock/post-hardcore as much as we are, you’ll LOVE this short but sweet EP.
Seriously, all 3 tracks have very obvious hooks in the choruses, but it’s “Dark Passenger” that really stands out as a song. It reminds us a lot of something you might find on an early Story Of The Year record, or possibly even mid-period Fightstar (probably Grand Unification). Basically sharp-edged post-hardcore with pop and rock sensibilities, which is a formula success as far as we’re concerned.
We’re excited to be premiering the band’s new lyric video for “Dark Passenger”, as well as streaming the entire EP for you to listen to in full. Check out all the goodies below, and Join The Faction.
