Backwards Youth have released their second EP, entitled Reality Check. The Charleston, SC hardcore band features Alex Todd on guitar and Jacob Paris on vocals. Listen to the new record below.
We spoke to Todd about the record, and his band:
Reality Check is a wake up call. Racism still exists, white privilege exists, rape culture exists, gender discrimination exists and there are so many other issues that we cannot keep quiet about. People are too busy blindly following each other and this is our attempt to disrupt that.
Reality Check was tracked and mixed by Kris Hilbert at Legitimate Business. Mastering is by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege. Album art is by Chad Lawson, with tracklisting art by Preston Weippert. Guest vocals on Excuse are by Patrick Thomas of False Light. The record is available to download or stream through the Backwards Youth Bandcamp page.
