As fitting a mission statement for the record as any of the previously similarly styled songs for other HIRS Collective records, the opening title track of We’re Still Here expresses all the places that the album is prepared to take its audience. Featuring unreal blast beats and a crushing doom metal refrain featuring previous collaborator and friend Shirley Manson of Garbage, the song assures you that the Collective cannot be lost with the absence of any one member, just as an idea cannot be killed even if its originator is.

“We’ll never quit this collective, a version of therapy for ourselves and anyone who feels in need to scream their lungs out for one more day of living.” 


Completely self-produced (like always) and completely self-managed (the Collective is also a driving force behind Get Better Records, who are handling the release) the HIRS Collective’s We’re Still Here is a statement of bravery and irascible resilience that will be one of their many entries into an already unmatched career whose influence has already started to affect young musicians the nation and world over. The HIRS Collective knows its strength and is meeting the realization of its power with measured intention.
 

“We don’t think we can destroy every single negative structure, but we can dismantle them within ourselves. And if we have the chance to destroy it, let’s fucking go. But we aren’t going to be given any power from anyone else and have to take it for ourselves.”
