Hardcore veterans Lionheart made their comeback from a quick hiatus back in 2017 and they’ve dropped a new song featuring Stick To Your Guns vocalist Jesse Barnett.

The band gave fans something new to sink their teeth into today through a new song called “Rock Bottom” that is appearing on their upcoming record, Valley Of Death.

The new track also arrives alongside an accompanying music video. In the clip, you can see the band performing in a beautifully lit room as a woman works through some personal issues were assuming relate to her own rock bottom.

The song itself is a pretty straight forward hardcore banger and shows off both vocalists flexing how hard they can go with their vocals.

The band had a very brief split in 2016 that was the result of members starting families and focusing on full-time careers.

However, almost as soon as they had disbanded, they completely and utterly regretted their decision.

“We fucked up,” vocalist Rob Watson says. “Everybody missed it immediately. That’s life. That’s how it goes; people make bad decisions all the time. We should never have broken up. We should have just taken a break.”

After announcing their breakup, the entire band started to feel something was missing from their lives. They kept attending concerts but being in the audience instead of on stage left them feeling lost.

Watson and guitarist Evan Krejci then decided to keep writing together. They were enjoying the process so much that they discussed potentially starting up a new band, but it soon became clear the style of the material was too familiar.

“Once we started recording it and demoing it, it sounded like Lionheart,” Watson remarks. “It’s just what we write. We couldn’t put it out as a side-project because there was nothing different about it.”

Valley Of Death arrives November 15 via Arising Empire and can be pre-ordered here.
