“No borders, no boundaries, we just love hardcore.” That’s the attitude owners Che Figueroa and Ricky Singh push forward when talking about their long standing record label, Flatspot Records. Today the label announces The Extermination Vol. 4, a compilation featuring exclusive tracks from artists on their roster and some of their favorite rising bands in the hardcore scene. Kicking things off are Australian standouts Speed with One Blood We Bleed, following the release of their Gang Called Speed EP in June the song hits as another level to their thumping, swagger-filled take on the genre. The video was filmed in three takes on locations in both Los Angeles, USA and Sydney, Australia, the song celebrates the world-wide community both Flatspot Records and the band have built.

“‘One Blood We Bleed’ is about recognising the humility of man, that we are all equals on this earth. Amidst the helplessness of the world we choose to focus our energy into what we feel we can tangibly impact; the people in front of us. Our friends, family and our scene.  Living with compassion for your fellow man, despite our differences – that’s Sydney, that’s Speed.” (Speed vocalist Jem)
