Los Angeles straight edge hardcore outfit Berthold City, who were formed by members of Strife, Internal Affairs and Allegiance, are preparing to release their first official full-length, When Words Are Not Enough, via War Records in March. Ahead of the release band have now unleashed the album’s first video, Only Truth Wins.

With twelve tracks of foundational, hard hitting, anthemic hardcore, When Words Are Not Enough will solidify Berthold City into the forefront of modern hardcore. The album was recorded and mixed at Jet To Mars Studio by Terror’s Nick Jett, mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege and is completed with cover art and design by Jeremy Dean. The album also features guest vocals from Count Me In‘s Jason Mazzola on the track Left With Nothing.

“‘Only Truth Wins’ is the first song on the record, and more or less the title track, as the line ‘When Words Are Not Enough’ comes from the chorus of this song. Musically, the song pushes into heavier territory than we have explored in the past. I wanted the LP to take listeners on a journey through different sounds and influences to make the album more interesting and really keep listeners engaged. This song is heavily influenced by older bands like Judge and Bold, combined with more modern influences of bands like Have Heart and Bane, and it definitely bridges the gap between Berthold City and Strife.” (Founding vocalist Andrew Klin)

When Words Are Not Enough can be pre-ordered via War Records & Bandcamp
