New York/New Jersey hardcore unit Full Scale Riot have released a music video for their song “Betrayus”, which comes off their Depopulation EP. The band offered on the track and video:

“The song title ‘Betrayus’ is a riff on the General Petraeus scandal in name only. ‘Betrayus’ is about friendship and loyalty, or the illusion of. It’s the ugly side of allowing yourself to be vulnerable. This song is a slight departure from the rest of the politically driven songs on the EP, although the same sentiment can be applied to our elected officials; that’s why you can see labor movement images as well as other political themes throughout the video.”

The Depopulation EP is out now and can be purchased/streamed below. Full Scale Riot are preparing to enter the studio in the coming months to record the follow-up to the EP.

8/08 – Secaucus, NJ | The Blue Room
