UK 5-piece HACKTIVIST have confirmed that they will be releasing their highly-anticipated debut album Outside the Box on March 4 worldwide via UNFD – the very first international global signing for the Australian label. Hacktivist have also just released the first single from Outside the Box titled Buszy. You can check it out below.
Co-vocalist Ben Marvin explains the thought process behind it: ” Buszy in Milton Keynes is a place we’ve all grown up with. They used to put club nights on there and there’s also a skate park. It also was used for community projects, but unfortunately it is being shut down by the council in another example of profit over people. We did the best we could to keep it going but our voices were unheard. We decided to name our song after it and get a video shoot booked in before it got shut down, so I want people to take away from it the fact that no matter what, you gotta do what you love and you gotta fight for what you believe in. No matter what or who is against you.”
It’s no understatement to say Outside the Box has been a long time coming – it comprises over five years’ worth of ideas that have been bubbling while the band crossed milestone after milestone, fueled by the success of their self-titled 2013 EP.
