Brick By Brick will release their new record Hive Mentality on February 22, which will feature vocalists Jessica Pimentel of Alekhine’s Gun, Vincent Bennett of The Acacia Strain, and Tony Foresta of Iron Reagan and Municipal Waste. We're premiering the band;'s collaboration with Bennett today titled "In The Ruins." The song is a no holds barred slugfest of pure energy and riffs designed exclusively to drive you to destroy everything. It's also a re-recording of a song originally featured on a limited split.
Here's what guitarist Mike Valente had to say.
“I wanted to re-do this song and give it the proper relaunch that it deserved with our vocalist Ray manning the helm. The song had history with Vincent and we needed to have him come in and add his guttural presence into the fold again. “In The Ruins” has hooks, it will grab your attention and make you want to spin kick the head of your neighbor!”
Vincent Bennett adds that he's a big fan of the band, and thought he was being taken to his death the first time he guested on a Brick By Brick track.
“My first real experience with BRICK BY BRICK was being driven out to a farm in the middle of nowhere to record the guest spot for the original version of this song. I thought I was going to die. Instead, I made some good friends. We have since done countless shows together, including the annual toy drives. When they decided to re-record this song, of course I agreed to also re-record my part!”
