By on August 10, 2020

Melbourne based hardcore outfit Priorities have today launched their debut single “If I Believed”, and will see a digital release come Friday, 7th August through all major digital streaming platforms. Click here to get started. Based out of the South-Eastern suburbs of Victoria, Priorities blends a unique influence of musical stylings, creating an aggressive sound by blending 2000’s-era hardcore sounds with elements of a more contemporary djent, prog and metalcore. Have a listen for yourself in the Youtube link below.

‘If I Believed’ is the band’s debut release – and the song, according to vocalist Mitch Sigge, comes from a very personal place – and this was the perfect outlet for it. The song “…is about the feeling of helplessness I had in myself during a dark time in my life. It was my expression of what it’s like when your world crashes around you – and not knowing where to go from there.

The track (mixed and mastered by Nathan Sanderson) was premiered on radio Wednesday night on The Faction and the lyric video, created by Poseidon Media, dropped at Maniacs Thursday 6th August, with Maniacs saying that “It’s a potent blend of 2000’s era metalcore with a more modern edge that glides between deep melody and crushing heaviness, with a breakdown right at the end that leaves you wanting more. It’s also pretty rare to hear such an accomplished sound from a band’s very first output – a clear sign of some great things to come from Priorities further down the track!

Priorities are; Mitch Sigge on Vocals, Alan Lipsett on Bass, Dean Martin and Jesse Grinde on Guitar duties and Liam Dauncey on Drums. To get the full story, head to the band’s official Facebook page.
