Hacktivist Become First International Band To Sign To UNFD Worldwide


It seems like the folks at local powerhouse label UNFD would have barely had enough time to finish checking their luggage for tiger snakes after returning from this year’s sold out UNIFY Gathering, but somehow they’re already back to work and have today announced an exciting new international signing.

UK djent-warriors Hacktivist will be bringing their brand of monster riffs and rhymes to the known world this March 4 in their form of their debut album, Outside The Box, via UNFD. With guest appearances from Rou Reynolds (Enter Shikari), Jamie Graham, Astroid Boys and cyber rhymer Jot Maxi, it promises to be a wild and unique assault on the eardrums.

Of the meaning behind the single, co-vocalist Ben Marvin explains: “This song is about partying, tour life and dedication to our H team – living the life we want and not letting anything get in our way. The Buszy in Milton Keynes is a place we’ve all grown up with. They used to put club nights on there and there’s also a skatepark. It also was used for community projects, but unfortunately it is being shut down by the council in another example of profit over people. We did the best we could to keep it going but our voices were unheard. We decided to name our song after it and get a video shoot booked in before it got shut down, so I want people to take away from it the fact that no matter what, you gotta do what you love and you gotta fight for what you believe in. No matter what or who is against you.”
