Last Hounds have been busy making moves in 2024. The Midlands crossover crew, known for their proficient blend of hardcore punk and modern hip-hop, recently wowed the crowd at Brixton Academy opening for scene legends NOFX. Now, Last Hounds return with a brand new single and a fire in their belly. Disco reignites the signature RATM influenced hardcore with new influences and fresh ideas

“Disco is a fiery anthem about embracing your anger. We’re often told to stay calm, take a deep breath, and just be nice. But sometimes, that just doesn’t cut it. Sometimes, you need to let go of niceness and get angry at what needs to change. You might even want to smash everything in sight just to feel better about your problems. That spark of anger can ignite a real transformation in your life. I took inspiration for the song after watching a video of Hip-Hop dancers throwing shapes to some Funk and Disco. They looked so free and happy, just lost in the moment, dancing. I really wanted to make a track that people could dance to so we took inspiration from bands like Turnstile and Idles who are absolute crowd movers, but then sprinkled in some 00’s Indie references and mashed it together. What we have come away with is a song that ignites emotions—whether it’s the need to unleash your anger or just to dance and feel amazing about life—whatever works for you!” (vocalist Mikey Skelcher)
