Trash/Thrash Tuesday: Walls of Jericho – “Forever Militant”

Oh hey tiny friends, how goes your week so far?

Is it grey enough and shitty enough outside for you?

If so, you know what that means – time to take your ass to the gym and get on the treadmill and find some sick new tracks to listen to.  Since AFI apparently has a new album and other bands from the early aughts seem to be coming back with a vengeance because time is after all cyclical, I figured I’d hop on here today and shoot you some early aughts wonder with the new Walls of Jericho track for Trash/Thrash Tuesday.

Now, I wasn’t much of an emo kid in the early aughts, I was too busy being gawth, but I always kinda dug these guys.  The leading lady Candace could kick your ass and you know how I feel about powerful ladies.

And here’s what they had to say about their new release:

“Eight years after The American Dream, WALLS OF JERICHO have found new allies in Napalm Records and released their latest and highly anticipated record No One Can Save You From Yourself in 2016.

There`s definitely no space for soft nuances! The band centered around power fronter Candace is famous for maddening riffing, downbeats and HUGE breakdowns. Fans worldwide count on the unmatched aggression and integrity of Detroit`s daughter and sons – be it at their brutal live shows or on record!”

“We shot this over the summer of 2016 at With Full Force Festival as a headliner of the main stage. The band really wanted to show the world what our live shows are live no matter what stage we play big or small. Getting ready to support Suicidal Tendencies in 2017 brings us back to Europe in a large club setting and we can’t be more excited to see everyone up close and more personal. “Forever Militant” is a stand out track on our new album so be ready to see us play this song every night on The Persistence Tour. ” – Walls of Jericho

Once again I face this world
Broken and bruised again
I have walked through the gates of hell
And we’ve only just begun
Came up short let it slip through my finger
Till i hated who I saw in the mirror
Lost all hope for the shit I let linger
Bore down to break my shoulders
Love these scares because I earned them on my terms
All the cuts and scraps and the deep burns
I walk proud every corner that I turn, stand up
And break the barriers
Again on my own I walk alone
Time is now. Wipe this shit off my shoulders
My minds set getting stronger and stronger
I won’t stop till this city is burning
These flames light my journey
Stare right though the enemy in my way
I’m already seeing signs of a brighter day
Take that step in getting stronger in my fight
Victory is all I see in my sights
Forward infinite. Keep the past distant
Forever militant
We build walls to keep everybody out
We build walls to stop all the pain
We build walls to keep our self-suffering
we build walls. Tear down these fucking walls
Hold on to the passion that you have left
