Reality Slap Posts “Haymaker” Video

Portuguese hardcore outfit Reality Slap has released a video for “Haymaker” below, taken off the “Limitless” EP set for release this Friday the 13th through War Records, the label founded by Andrew Kline of Strife.

Combining the best of old-school aggression with a modern hardcore vibe, Reality Slap’s songs are full of tight riffs, heavy grooves, and always pack a massive punch. Issues Reality Slap of the new single:

“‘Haymaker’ is a metaphoric punch to human attitude towards life and other beings. It’s really a call out to everyone who chooses not to feel, who chooses to ignore what’s going on around them because they’re too entertained and blinded by all the material shit that’s put in front of them. We still want to feel and we still want to see, that’s life, connection is key, there’s more life beyond. We can always do better and find a better narrative to address problems and life itself. We choose not to ignore by approaching life with a smile and against human numbness.”
