Texas metal punks EXPANDER have released a “capitalist-decapitating” new single, “Megacorp”, taken from their incoming second album, Neuropunk Boostergang.
Neuropunk Boostergang marks EXPANDER’s return to GodCity Studio (Converge, Old Man Gloom, Full Of Hell), again utilising the state-of-the-art studio to capture every nuance of the raw energy.
The album was recorded by Kurt Ballou, mastered by Joel Grind (Toxic Holocaust), and completed with cover art by Luca Carey.
“The future where Earth-society is ruled by powerful, multinational corporations is here,” EXPANDER declares with the “Megacorp” unveiling.
“Using their advanced data-mining networks and extended lifeblood contracts, the titans of industry have nearly completed their ultimate power play: dehumanize and reduce the workforce to pure energy commodities for maximum value extraction.”
EXPANDER attacks with old-school guerrilla tactics to erase the vile ManageHand software, dismantle all infonests, and disperse the power back to the citizenry.
EXPANDER has been putting out their brand of futuristic metalpunk since forming in 2014.
With their second full-length album, Neuropunk Boostergang, the group “aggressively channels the anxieties foisted on us from oppressive systems using every weapon at their disposal: pummelling rhythms, transcendent melodies and wild vocal deliveries that keep listeners on guard for whatever might come crawling from the wastes next”.
