New York hardcore band King Nine will enter the studio this summer to record their sophomore album and follow-up to 2013 debut full-length, Scared To Death. If you're a fan eagerly awaiting new music, don't worry though, because the group will soon release a 7" single via Closed Casket Activities. Even better, we're streaming its title track right now.

If you're not familiar with King Nine, the Long Island quintet launched in 2011 and reside somewhere between Merauder and Cold As Life in the spectrum of hardcore music. But really, screw the comparisons. Just check out the song "The Art of War" and decide for yourself. Meanwhile, keep up with King Nine on Facebook and have a look at their upcoming show schedule.
