Hear Long Island's Hangman Channel Madball, Merauder on New Ripper "One Mistake"

Song written for — and in words of — friend who got locked up

Hailing from Long Island's fruitful hardcore scene, Hangman is a rising five-piece that are already a staple of the live circuit and raring to release their debut LP, One by One, for Flatspot Records. The album hits on September 20th and features eight new songs including the album opener "One Mistake," which makes it's debut here today. From the get-go on "One Mistake," Hangman wear their influences on their sleeve, opening with a very classic intro that recalls famous entries by Leeway, No Warning, Outburst and more. Then the cut shifts into a very groove-oriented gear, with the drummer riding the hi-hat Nineties style and vocalist Dan Mulligan coming across with all of the fury of an early Karl Buechner. All in all, Madball is a definite jumping off point, as well as Merauder and Killing Time.

"I wrote this song for one of our best friends David who found himself getting locked up," Mulligan explains of the "One Mistake." "I speak to him over the phone from inside pretty often and I told him I was going to write one of the new songs for him and asked him to describe what he was feeling. Most of the lyrics in this song are his own words so I think it's one of the stronger songs we have ever written. David has been a good friend to us for years and a supporter of us since day one and I can't wait for him to get out to hang and sing this with us."
