Highway Sniper is here to melt your face off with their new single “Cycles of Pain,” available on streaming platforms June 10, 2022. This is the first single off their upcoming  EP, The Great Satan, out July 27, 2022 via Smartpunk Records. This new single is also to celebrate Highway Sniper signining to Smartpunk Records. In “Cycles of Pain,” Highway Sniper tackles the economic and social inequalities that Neolibralism presents on the world. This is what they have to say about it: 

“It’s not really a fresh idea at all. Ordinary people blame each other more than they blame the elites. Neoliberalism wants people at each other’s throats because it’s good for business. You feel bad after a heated political argument because you’ve both been sold different distortions of the same story. We live in a culture that hates us. And I believe the same idea applies internationally.– Highway Sniper

In regards to Highway Sniper signing to Smartpunk Records, this is what Matt Burns, Label Manager, had to say;

“We’re all fans of heavier music here at the label, so we jumped at the opportunity when Skylar (from Taking Meds) showed me Highway Sniper. I was on board with Greatest Hits 1 & 2, and when him and George played me these demos, I knew I had to work with these guys.” – Matt Burns, Smartpunk Records 

Highway Sniper is the brainchild of George Lucarelli, a bizarre individual from the Cleveland area who has a particular talent for writing and recording songs from many different corners of the aggressive music spectrum. Since the earliest Highway Sniper material was reminiscent of stadium crust acts such as Tragedy or From Ashes Rise, vocalist/lyricist Skylar Sarkis employed lyrics that were both politically charged and nihilistic.

Make sure to keep an eye out for pre order via Smartpunk Records for The Great Satan and follow Highway Sniper on socials.
