Up-and-coming metal quartet HAWXX Have released a video for their latest single, ‘Death of Silence’. It’s the first track to be taken from their upcoming new EP ‘You’re Only As Loud As You Shout Right Now‘, set for release early 2022.
Inspired by the #MeToo movement, ‘Death of Silence’ is a song of solidarity and empowerment. Accompanied by volatile guitars, thunderous drums and a truly passionate vocal performance, the song is an impactful and inspiring call to action for anyone being silenced to be as loud as is humanly possible. The message behind the song attracted an almost entirely female identifying crew to work on the video, and the process proved to be a meaningful and special experience for everyone involved. The new track follows their successful 2020 EP ‘Deadlands‘, earning support from Metal Hammer, Classic Rock, Powerplay and Rock Sound, as well as helping them win the 2020 PRS Women Make Music Award.
London-based but hailing from Greece, Wales, England and Bahrain, HAWXX – comprised of Anna (guitar and lead vocals), Hannah (guitar and vocals), Jessica (drums) and Iman (bass and vocals) – are on a mission to bring diversity and inclusivity into the rock and metal world, reforming the genre’s gender imbalance in the process. Writing songs that reflect self-empowerment, the lies of the diet industry, mental health struggles and life’s daily challenges, they act as a voice for the voiceless and a beacon of hope bursting from today’s bleak landscape.
The band are also heading out for a number of live dates on the approach to the end of the year, performing two headline dates in November and supporting Marisa And The Moths in December. All the upcoming live dates are below.
