Vocalist Kate Jacobi says, “The story of “The Hathors” is haunting and sad as much as defiant. In the journey of learning to be happy with who you are, there are those that won’t believe in you and people who will be let down with who you become. It’s about turning down the voices in your head of everyone that said “you can’t” and silencing the doubt, knowing that it will never fully go away.”

‘The Spine That Binds’ will be released digitally and on limited edition colored vinyl.

Laughing In The Face Of release new single ‘Running With Coffee’


Skate-punk veterans Laughing In The Face Of excel in tight melodic hardcore, riddled with hooks, riffs and head-banging breaks. This is fun, fast punk with rock and metal influences, played by four broke dudes who just love doing it for the hell of it.

‘Running With Coffee’ is the band’s first video single since 2011. It’s an anxious, sarcastic and fun shredder of a tune, showcasing some of LITFO’s adrenaline-drenched race to rush through life.

Formed in the summer of 2009, Laughing The Face of have undergone a number of line-up changes but have stuck with Lockjaw Records since their debut album ‘Lubrication of Social Anxiety’, released in 2011. This CD has been greatly received by many – fans and critics alike – and has become a bit of a must-have amongst fans of the genre.

“[Running With Coffee’ is] about rushing through life, trying to fit everything in and not necessarily looking after yourself enough in the process,” say frontman Steve Lowry. “Feeling run-down yet pushing on, fuelled on caffeine and what can often seem like a constant manic rush which ultimately wears you down. Daily routines, minimal sleep and then finally things you enjoy in the remainder of time.

It’s one of maybe a few songs on this album that I think, behind the main subject, have an underlying theme of being very aware of how quick time flies. It’s also taking the piss out of the very idea that these kind of issues could even be considered as real problems. Bullshit comes in many different flavours, but you have to sing about what’s real to you and what bothers you, or some cases keeps you going.”

Keep your eyes peeled for new singles and an exiting new release from Laughing In The Face Of in the coming months.
