Decibel Magazine is exclusively streaming “Abandoned,” the new single from Long Island-based hardcore ac, HANGMAN, advancing the release of their A Vile Decree debut EP through Flatspot Records.
Running with the mew track, the magazine has posted commentary from the band on connecting with Brian Zoid – vocalist of legendary Long Island hardcore brutes Neglect, who supplies guest vocals to the track – as well as from Zoid himself. Decibel issues in part, “Long Island hardcore bruisers HANGMAN are one of the many exciting, newer hardcore bands to be watching right now. With their latest EP, A Vile Decree, HANGMAN have made it clear that they can deliver on the same level as their labelmates Mizery and Backtrack.”

Five furious tunes are delivered on A Vile Decree, with upbeat circle-pit energy interjected with slamming grooves and vicious breakdowns. HANGMAN captured the tracks in late spring 2017, the EP recorded and mixed at Silver Bullet Studio in Connecticut with Greg Thomas (Misery Signals, Shai Hulud, Recycled Earth) and mastered by Bill Henderson at Azimuth Mastering.
Flatspot Records will release A Vile Decree on November 3rd, on 7” vinyl in runs of 350 copies on black vinyl and 150 on clear, and through all digital platforms. Find merch bundles and more for preorder at THIS LOCATION
Influenced by the likes of Terror, Neglect, Vision Of Disorder, Backtrack, Biohazard, and Madball, HANGMAN delivered their first demo in 2014, and their Hangman II EP in 2015, which helped the fledgling act begin to infiltrate the Long Island and NYHC scenes. Through supporting the likes of Silent Majority, Agnostic Front, Backtrack, Burn, Maximum Penalty, Stigmata, Billy Club Sandwich, Negative Approach, Ramallah, Knocked Loose, Higher Power, and others, and tours with Impact and Queensway, HANGMAN has honed their sound to a much more damaging new level in 2017, which sees the band bringing out their hardest material to date on A Vile Decree.
