Life’s Question defines themselves as “the real deal”, but the five-piece band are more than your average hardcore act. The band have now released their self-titled EP through Flatspot Records. The six songs on the EP put the band’s blend of crushing hardcore laced with classic rock riffs and lush refrains on full display. Recorded with producer Jon Markson at The Animal Farm, the entire EP comes through as a seamless yet diverse listen.

Citing influences as diverse as Faith No More, No Warning, Van Halen and Fats Domino, Life’s Question showcase a knack for melody while also giving a tough as nails delivery. Josh Haynes‘ gruff vocal approach finds juxtaposition in the harmonious vocals supplied by guitarist Abby Rhine, shifting tracks like When I Meet God and Something Out There to moments of serenity amongst the chaos.

Guitars from Abby and Ridge Rhine, and bassist AJ Hoenings, burst through electrifying solos and downtuned grooves. Drummer Nick Barker builds the backbone of the six tracks, leading off intense breakdowns. Throughout, the lyrics address finding meaning in faith, loss and love.
