Metalcore trio Halocene have shared their new single “Maleficent” along with an official music video. The song celebrates “finding your own voice in spite of others’ doubts and opinions” and is the title track and from the band’s forthcoming EP, out May 19th, 2023.
The band shares:
’Maleficent’ is about finding self confidence and embracing who you are, despite the way outside voices may perceive you. The hate becomes fuel for your fire, and if being yourself makes you evil, then so be it.
Halocene began in 2008 with a traditional band mindset to release music, play shows, and make fans. As the landscape changed, they adapted, shifting their focus to solely online content, whether it be covers on YouTube or livestreaming on Twitch. During the pandemic, when everyone was stuck at home, the band finally found their audience with a cover of “Chop Suey” by System of a Down. Since then, they’ve played sold out shows and gathered world-wide fans.
