Today California hardcore band Torena has shared “Slave No More“, the second single from their upcoming EP, Evil Eyez, set for release March 14th through DAZE. Produced and mixed by Taylor Young (Mindforce, Age of Apocalypse) and mastered by Nick Townsend (Drain, Militarie Gun), the five songs on the EP sound as explosive as its artwork looks. Following lead track “Bleed”, “Slave No More” is made for the pit as two-step ready melodies and shouty gang vocals dominate the first half of the song before leading into thick instrumentals.

The band has also announced a tour in April hitting the western half of the United States and Canada, with End Of Dayz and Witness Chamber on select dates. Full list of upcoming shows below.

Formed in 2020, Evil Eyez, serves as the Torena’s second release following their 2021 debut album, Cerebellum Prison. Having already opened for acts like Knocked Loose, Dead Heat, and Sunami, the band is poised to be the next need-to-know band in California hardcore and beyond.

Evil Eyez is available for preorder on CD now at daze-style.com.
