After announcing their signing to UNFD in April, Grove Street have now confirmed the release of their debut album The Path To Righteousness.

Due out on September 29, the hardcore/thrash mob have previewed the LP with a new single and the album’s title-track, and it sees them trying to mesh together two badass influences: Suicidal Tendencies and Power Trip.

“The track itself came together pretty organically in the practice room,” explains drummer Josh. “I remember listening to Suicidal Tendencies and Power Trip at the time and wanted to capture a hybrid of groove and fast thrashy vibes. We wanted the last section to build and then finish strong and heavy. The repetitive vocal hook was added last minute in the studio, but it fast became my favourite part!”

Guitarist Sandy adds that lyrically the song “represents and explores escapism and the importance of having outlets or vices to help forget about the struggles of life, and the paradoxical irony of how escaping everyday life improves everyday life.”

Speaking about the album as whole, Sandy reveals: “We’ve worked on this record for a long time; it was a labour of love, from its inception to the DIY approach we took with the recording and mixing. This being our debut full-length, we knew we wanted to level up on every front, which led us to be meticulous with every detail on every part of every song. We couldn’t justify rushing it for the sake of feeding the machine. We’re extremely proud of it. Every track taps into a different part of what Grove Street is.”
