With their first album since 2014, hardcore outfit Outright have a lot to say. Vocalist Jelena Goluza shares commentary about the overarching themes on ‘Keep You Warm’ (out today), which tackles climate change, mental health, inequality and more.
"When we normalise self-sacrifice we teach people that we don't matter and that can be weaponised against us - but nothing gets done when you have nothing left. It's dedicated to anyone else who feels this in their professional and personal lives, activism or everyday pressures; I won't set myself on fire, just to keep you warm."
What We Are Playing tonight on The Faction Radio - 7pm AEST!
Ferocious, unapologetic and entirely uncompromising, Outright refuse to remain quiet when it comes to crucial social issues and reinforces the band as a commanding force in the heavy music space. The Hammer is the first single from their forthcoming album 'Keep You Warm' - out Friday 15 July 2022, through Reason and Rage Records!

"We could pretend that Mcllrath didn't break a guitar string in the last song, but it made Savior as the finale all the more special."
"Every chorus calls for raised fists, and each track receives the respect it deserves."
"The rest of the band returns to bring proceedings to a frantic finale with the one-two punch of Dancing For Rain and Savior."
"It’s a celebration of a community, and a testament to High Tension’s place as leaders and role models in the landscape of heavy music in Melbourne."
