Official press release:

Long Island, NY hardcore powerhouse, Stray From The Path, have been bringing their charged up punk fury and politically outspoken voice to the masses for going on 18 years, and they show absolutely no sign of slowing down. Today the band have announced their signing with UNFD, and their first release with their new label, Smash 'Em Up: Live In Europe 2019. Due out May 17th, the upcoming album captures Stray From The Path in their element on stage, as evidenced by their new live video for "First World Problem Child (Live in London, England)" featuring Sam Carter of Architects. Stay tuned as the band gear up for another huge year with extensive touring and more music on the way from their team-up with UNFD.

Smash 'Em Up: Live In Europe 2019 follows Stray From The Path's 2017 full-length, Only Death Is Real, and pulls no punches in demonstrating the band's raw power in the live setting.

In a statement the band elaborated, "We've wanted to do a live record for years now, but the stars really never aligned for it. An opportunity presented itself on our latest tour supporting While She Sleeps, and we were fortunate enough to be able to make it happen. This album takes places across Mainland Europe and the United Kingdom, with each song performed in some of our favorite cities on Earth. This record is live, unedited, no backing tracks, and all songs are performed and written by the people in this band. Thank you to Julien Delcroix, Florent Salfati, Moritz Hartmann, Daniel Gray, UNFD and Sumerian Records for their assistance in making this happen. All of the band's royalties from this live album are going to be donated to the Hardcore Help Foundation in perpetuity. More to come."

Hardcore Help Foundation is a non-profit organization that supports various humanitarian projects around the globe.
