MUSIC NEWS: Hacktivist Stream New Version Of ‘Deceive & Defy’ Featuring Heart Of A Coward Frontman Jamie Graham

Hacktivist have revealed a brand new version of their single Deceive & Defy, featuring Heart Of A Coward frontman Jamie Graham. The track is featured on the band’s debut album Outside The Box, which is set for worldwide release on the 4th March via UNFD (UNFD/Rise Records in the USA).

Of the track, co-vocalist Ben Marvin says:

“This song is about the illusion of success in mainstream music – how people can be loved one day then hated the next. There’s nothing wrong with starting from the bottom and working to where you want to be. You’re way more likely to last longer at the top and be remembered if you don’t sell yourself out.”

Guitarist Timfy James adds:

“Deceive And Defy for me is an all-round impression of us as a band and what we stand for. You can’t just buy your way into music – it takes blood, sweat and tears, something H know all about.”

Check out the new version of Deceive & Defy below:
