Southern California hardcore outfit, FORCED ORDER, has released a new single from their Revelation Records-bout debut LP, Vanished Crusade, issuing the album’s seething “Unexist” through the aid of Alternative Press. Additionally, preorders for the LP have been made available.

Formed by a tight-knit set of musicians whom also spend time in Twitching Tongues, Disgrace, Soul Search, and others, FORCED ORDER‘s output pays homage to the beatdown riffs, backup chants and malevolent, divebomb guitar leads of 1990s Cleveland hardcore/metal kingpins Integrity, Ringworm, In Cold Blood and the like. The band’s debut LP, Vanished Crusade, delivers their bleak views of the planet around us with impenetrable conviction; jaw-clenching angst fuels their infectious, punishing grooves with unchained urgency, infiltrated by haunting instrumental pieces, adding to the album’s ill-omened delivery. Vanished Crusade was produced by Taylor Young at The Pit (Nails, Xibalba, Twitching Tongues), unloading its fourteen anthems with a punishingly hard delivery.

Alternative Press is responsible for the public infiltration of the second track from Vanished Crusade with an exclusive advance listen to “Unexist.” The invigorating dynamics and groove-heavy intensity of this song are guaranteed to set the listener into a blind rage FORCED ORDER style.

Take the beating of FORCED ORDER’s “Unexist” through now at THIS LOCATION.

Revelation Records will issue FORCED ORDER‘s Vanished Crusade on CD and digital platforms on August 7th, with the vinyl version to follow. Preorders for all physical formats including the vinyl — with 500 being pressed on Coke Bottle Clear and 1200 on Clear Gold — including merch bundles and more are now available through RevHQ HERE.
