Philly hardcore experimental extremists Soul Glo share the new single “If I Speak (Shut The Fuck Up)”, the band’s first new music since 2022’s breakthrough album, Diaspora Problems (Epitaph). The song arrives ahead of their U.S. co-headlining tour with Los Angeles band Zulu that kicks off this week.

Produced at Jamtown Studios in Philadelphia by GG Guerra with additional drum engineering by Evan Bernard, it was then mixed by Steve Evetts, and mastered by Alan Douches. Diving into thrash-leaning hardcore punk, “If I Speak (Shut The Fuck Up)” is anchored by a trance-inducing beat with gritty, fuzzed out guitars enhancing the raw rage from within vocalist Pierce Jordan. He explains,

““If I Speak” is a song about channeling one’s voice and perspective through art or another creative expression. You can hear when people spend more time online than on their music. You can tell when people are more focused on a visual statement than a sound.”  

In addition to the new track, the band also shares an accompanying NSFW music video and its censored counterpart below:
