U.K. thrashers RIPTIDE have released their latest single “Inhuman Race” — the first track the trio has released since last September. The relentless new track has been released on “Thrashed TV” — ex-Jhofffilms’ Chris Soustsos’ brand new YouTube Channel.
Check out the song below.
Adam Smith (lead guitarist and vocalist) comments: “I have been holding onto ‘Inhuman Race’ for a very long time. I wrote it when I was 15, back in 2015, and I have been wanting to release this since then. It is a punchy, ferocious track full of crushing riffs and dynamic progressions.
“We are also incredibly stoked to be releasing the track on Thrashed TV – Chris Soutsos’ brand new YouTube Channel. Chris is such a cool guy, and a good friend of ours. I have also watched his videos for years, so I am very humbled and excited to work with him!
“I am also incredibly happy to be co-producing alongside Sean, RIPTIDE’s bass king. We are a great team and have grown together over the years. We understand each other really well and I think that is something reflected in the production of this killer track!”
Sean Xavier (bassist and producer) continues: “I am incredibly happy with the way the new track has come out. It took a while but I’m really glad we have been able to finally release ‘Inhuman Race’ to the world! It is actually the 3rd time we had tried to record and finish the song, but we had quite a few production issues which were then magnified when Covid halted our plans, almost indefinitely. But we hung onto it and persevered, it’s all trial and error. We now have a much more stable plan and routine of releasing new music — from now on, releasing new music with RIPTIDE will be much more consistent. So there are many things to look forward to in 2021!”
Adam concludes: “‘Inhuman Race’ has been a long time in the making. It’s conception and production has been a team effort between all of the guys in the band, it is a track that we are all incredibly proud of and I hope everyone enjoys it as much as we do. Blast it loud and Mosh hard!”
