No Warning – “Friends in High Places”


Toronto based Hardcore metal band No Warning have returned after a decade of being broken up to release a crunchy new single “Friends in High Places” (which can be listened to below via SoundCloud) via Lockin’ Out Records that will be out near the end of the month.

No Warning waste no time getting to the ass kicking in “Friends in High Places”. Right away there are growling gruesome vocals with crunchy guitar riffs and thundering rhythms to back it up. It’s definitely a great way for a band that has been gone for so long to say, “We’re baaaack….”. Stereogum goes into further detail, saying:

No Warning are one of the few hardcore bands, in the past couple of decades, who managed to build any real sense of mystique for themselves, so the fact that they’re back is a pretty big deal. The band broke up in 2005, but they’ve played a few reunion shows in the last two years. And now they’ve gone into the studio to record “Friends In High Places,” a one-song flexi-disc that will be out soon. It’s an impressively tough and crunchy piece of music with an awesome grunt-along chorus and a cool psychedelic breakdown. Listen to it below.

Hopefully this badass new song means that soon the band will be working on a whole new album.
