MEEK IS MURDER + BrooklynVegan

Meek Is Murder presents newest track "Full Hearts, Empty Rooms," premiered today via BrooklynVegan.

The ripping new tune sees the Brooklyn trio inject some Morbid Angel slime/sludge into its trademark, forward-charging sound – a stampede of D-beats and angst on par with Converge, whose guitarist Kurt Ballou produced Meek's new album, Was, on which "Full Hearts, Empty Rooms" appears.

Produced by Ballou and mastered by Alan Douches (The Dillinger Escape Plan, Tombs), Was is set for a July 15th release. Pre-order here:

"Frenetic mathcore that fans of [Converge] will almost definitely like... with room for a little slowed-down sludge."
–BrooklynVegan

"Brooklyn's most batshit insane extreme music act... Was is a lethal injection of schizophrenic mathcore."
–MetalSucks
