The Promised End is set to release their debut album this Friday, and they've released the title track (ish) from that album. "The Buried and the Broken" is still the politically charged melodic hardcore that we've come to expect after the previous two singles, but what's unexpected is that the new single is both the heaviest and most pop single they've released so far. "The Buried and the Broken" crosses closely to both pop punk and emo, but it's just far too heavy to truly be either of those. This is a hard and fast hardcore song with the most vicious gang vocals you've heard in ages. Plus, there is some straight up metal guitar all over this track. Expect The Promised End to be making some big waves all over 2024 with this one.
Vocalist Paul Picillo says of the new song:
"These lives are wasted, shattered and longing to be whole. The first we tasted has now taken hold. Until the skin is cold."
