Premiere: NYHC Heroes Burn Release Mountain EP
NYHC heroes Burn have digitally released their Mountain EP today on the UK’s The Essence Records. This will be their fifth EP since forming in 1989, but interestingly they only released their first full-length album Do or Die in 2017.
The 7inch of Mountain will be available on their Do or Die European Tour in March 2018. The EP features two brand new songs recorded in NYC in January 2018.
“We really wanted to deliver something that was aggressive in the way that Burn does aggression,” says Burn guitarist Gavin Van Vlack. “It meant peeling back a lot of layers to make things feel more raw, There was a certain ‘anger, frustration and eventual release’ feeling that we wanted to capture and I feel that comes across in this.”
“Mountain is about the shadow in us all and the challenges it takes us on as we climb and descend jaggedly through life towards some type of enlightenment,” says frontman Chaka Malik. “Often times what triggers us most is the ammunition we need to win. It’s about looking yourself in the eye, and seeing the mountain in the shadow of your being. Only then can the climb towards true love begin.”
“Burn’s message is one of self awareness, self discernment, and overall positive growth! We as a society have become so dialed out of our humanity that we as a species now need to escape the mass thought paradigm. This disengagement is a key way that we as individuals can assess what we really believe to be true to ourselves.”
