2X4 'Dark Hand' EP stream

Oklahoma metalcore band 2X4 streams their new EP, Dark Hand.


Durant, Oklahoma metal/hardcore outfit 2X4 will release a new EP titled Dark Hand tomorrow, July 30th. This will be the second EP from the band, which originally formed in 2009.

Dark Hand was engineered, mixed, and mastered by Josh Schroeder at Random Awesome Studio and even though metalcore isn't currently the most poular kid on the block, so to speak, the band is cool with that:

"Even if what we play isn't the most popular thing out right now, we're going to make the music that we want. We never want to be considered fake."

Fake or not, you can listen to Dark Hand in its entirety right now below. If you dig the EP, be sure to buy it online and check out the band on Facebook.

anonymous 7/29/2013 12:54:33 PM

anonymous 7/29/2013 1:49:12 PM

Their drummer is good, but he's a bitch in real life

anonymous 7/29/2013 2:00:35 PM

Your retarded. the drummer is nice as shit.

anonymous 7/29/2013 3:27:38 PM

This is so sick! What tuning?

anonymous 7/29/2013 4:45:45 PM

anonymous 7/29/2013 4:48:48 PM

Gay. Gay. Gay.

anonymous 7/29/2013 5:11:58 PM

at least they don't sound like sworn in

anonymous 7/29/2013 5:14:34 PM

Boo, you whore.

anonymous 7/29/2013 5:27:40 PM

Sounds like The Dead Walk meets Wormwood.

anonymous 7/29/2013 5:58:01 PM

Sounds like my balls meeting my face

anonymous 7/29/2013 6:06:22 PM

I agree the drummer is a big bitch

anonymous 7/29/2013 6:19:22 PM

Vocalist sucks and is annoying.

anonymous 7/29/2013 6:37:49 PM

The catchiness of their previous music "Dead Days" really got me into 2X4. I wasn't impressed with their single "Entombed".. I believe in this band and this EP took a little getting used to, definitely a grower not a shower, but absolutely a terrific band to listen to while working out. This band can go far if they play their cards right. Nice guys.

anonymous 7/29/2013 6:47:28 PM

some really good friends of mine and im proud of you guys for doing something most people could only dream of, keep it up.

anonymous 7/29/2013 7:07:45 PM

f*ck. I heard the Guitar player is a spook.

anonymous 7/29/2013 7:10:00 PM

This is so boring hahaha

anonymous 7/29/2013 7:31:20 PM


anonymous 7/29/2013 9:19:23 PM

This is freaking sick as shit

anonymous 7/30/2013 5:40:39 AM

Sweet tribal logo, bruh.

anonymous 7/30/2013 9:47:54 AM

awesome, just what the world needs...more derivative, boring, and ridiculously bad music. This band will sign to mediaskare and break up in two years.

anonymous 7/30/2013 9:48:48 AM

I didn't realize that a band could be WORSE than sworn in

anonymous 7/30/2013 10:32:47 AM

"Even if what we play isn't the most popular thing out right now, we're going to make the music that we want. We never want to be considered fake." This kind of music isn't popular right now? Really? How do you explain Sworn In, For The Fallen Dreams, The Acacia Strain, Emmure, and Attila? This sad excuse for "hardcore" is no f*cking different. Just because you wear a cowboys jersey in your promo and act like a f*cking wigger doesn't make you a real hardcore band.

anonymous 7/30/2013 10:57:03 AM

This guy is an idiot^

anonymous 7/30/2013 12:11:30 PM

anonymous 8/18/2013 2:49:26 PM
