Syracuse, NY bruisers Trail of Lies hit the scene in 2011 with a singular goal- “play hard and heavy music that evokes the most primal of feelings in its listeners”. 13 years, countless shows and many lineup changes later, the band is back in 2024 and relentless as ever with their upcoming album Only The Strong set for release on July 19th through Triple B Records. Today, the band is proud to share the latest hard hitting single “My Way” featuring guest vocals from Scott Vogel and Danny Diablo.

“This song is about living your life your own way.” says the band. “Ignoring what society tells you, ignoring what pressure other people put on you and just living life the way you want.”

The new song conveys its message in the ferocious style of metallic tinged hardcore that fans have come to expect from the band. Blazing fast guitar riffs and angular grooves weave in and out of punishing breakdowns that culminate in the crushing vocal features from Vogel and Diablo. You can listen to “My Way” HERE.

On Only The Strong, Trail Of Lies collaborated with producer Andy Nelson of Bricktop Recording in Chicago, IL living and recording in the studio for a week before sending the completed album to Brad Boatright at Audiosiege for mastering. The band already shares members with the likes of Regulate, Candy and Naysayer but has expanded their formidable lineup even further on the new album with additional features from Pat Flynn, Sebastian Paba and Aldo Felix. Throughout eleven visceral songs, the band elevates their NYHC meets metallic hardcore sound to entirely new heights of aggression. Not content to rest on their laurels, the band continues to push the boundaries of heavy music, while remaining true to their roots.

Speaking on the overall purpose and theme of their new album, vocalist Tom Damiano had this to say:

“Our goal for Only The Strong is to continue to create music that affirms listeners most intense and primal feelings, while simultaneously serving as fuel to work on becoming the ‘strongest’ version of themself. If we can share that emotion and mindset with people, we’ve done our job.”

With the release of Only The Strong, Trail of Lies are entering a new era while carrying on the past legacy they built.

Only The Strong is available for preorder now through Triple B Records.
