Soul Glo Return With If I Speak

Philly hardcore experimental extremists Soul Glo have shared their new single If I Speak (Shut The Fuck Up), the band’s first new music since 2022’s breakthrough album, Diaspora Problems (Epitaph). The song arrives ahead of their U.S. co-headlining tour with Los Angeles band Zulu that kicks off this week.

Produced at Jamtown Studios in Philadelphia by GG Guerra with additional drum engineering by Evan Bernard, it was then mixed by Steve Evetts, and mastered by Alan Douches. Diving into thrash-leaning hardcore punk, If I Speak (Shut The Fuck Up) is anchored by a trance-inducing beat with gritty, fuzzed out guitars enhancing the raw rage from within vocalist Pierce Jordan. He explains,

If I Speak is a song about channeling one’s voice and perspective through art or another creative expression. You can hear when people spend more time online than on their music. You can tell when people are more focused on a visual statement than a sound.”

In addition to the new track, the band have also shared an accompanying NSFW music video and its censored counterpart. Watch CENSORED Music Video,  Watch NSFW Version.

Soul Glo’s schedule has been non-stop since the release of their 2022 breakout record Diaspora Problems (Epitaph), from multiple runs in Europe and the UK to gracing the lineups of festivals such as Coachella, Pitchfork Fest and KEXP’s The Thing Festival. Their songs confront the personal and the political with equal fury as vocalist Pierce Jordan howls about the inequities of the culture around him while offering a look at the conflict inside his head and heart. Fusing hip-hop, hardcore and punk, the Philly outfit are fearless in their approach and even more ruthless in their delivery, injecting their colorful narratives into predominantly white spaces.
