Finnish metal band Koitos released a single “Tämä Maa” (eng. “This earth”), which is the second release from the upcoming debut album. First single “Ilman kurssia” was released in October.

“As a composition, the song is dark and inconsolable so the apocalyptic theme for the lyrics ran through my mind right from the moment the song was created. Unfortunately the topic is constantly relevant“, describes vocalist Matti Hiitti.

Composition: Hannu Nieminen
Lyrics: Matti Hiitti

In addition to the composition and lyrics, the song was recorded and produced entirely by the band itself. In addition, the band’s bassist edited the music video and worked as a video shooting assistant. The song was mixed and mastered by Rami Nykänen, who has previously worked with bands like One Morning Left and Balance Breach.

Chicago hardcore unit HARM’S WAY have announced a trio of live dates. On December 16th, the band will play a headlining show at The X Bar in Cupertino, California. The following night, the band will appear at The Belasco Theater in Los Angeles, California for day one of the two-day For The Children Toy Drive – an annual event that collects toys to be distributed to those in need – where they’ll play alongside Rotting Out, Drain, King Nine, Koyo, Fuming Mouth, and more.

In February, the band will take part in the inaugural HeartSupport Festival in Orlando, Florida. Launched by August Burns Red frontman Jake Luhrs to benefit his HeartSupport non-profit foundation, HARM’S WAY will perform on day two of the two-day fest alongside Rise Against, The Ghost Inside, Spiritbox, and many others. Tickets are on sale now. See all confirmed dates below.

HARM’S WAY:
12/16/2022 The X Bar – Cupertino, CA [tickets]
12/17/2022 For The Children Toy Drive @ The Belasco Theater – Los Angeles, CA [tickets]
2/19/2023 HeartSupport Festival @ Central Florida Fairgrounds – Orlando, FL [tickets]

HARM’S WAY’s most recent full-length, Posthuman, was released on Metal Blade Records in 2018. Having grown with each subsequent release, Posthuman was a devastating addition to HARM’S WAY‘s catalog. In 2019, HARM’S WAY released a remix EP of Posthuman titled PSTHMN, a record the band called, “the evolutionary counterpart to our 2018 full-length, Posthuman.” PSTHMN includes four remixed and reinterpreted tracks by artists that have continually inspired and influenced the band throughout its tenure.
