See Architects Singer Join Stray From the Path for Raucous Performance

Sam Carter jumped onstage with Long Island hardcore faves to sing "First World Problem Child"

Long Island, New York's politically charged hardcore stalwarts Stray From the Path have been going strong for 18 years, but they have yet to issue a live album. That will all change with the release of Smash 'Em Up: Live in Europe 2019, which is due May 17th via the group's new label UNFD. (You can pre-order it here.) As a first taste of the record — which was recorded across Europe, from Scotland to Switzerland — SFTP have offered up the climatic cut on the LP, their London performance of "First World Problem Child," for which they were joined by Architects singer Sam Carter. Check out the raucous, high-energy clip above.

"We've wanted to do a live record for years now, but the stars really never aligned for it," the band commented in a statement. "An opportunity presented itself on our latest tour supporting While She Sleeps, and we were fortunate enough to be able to make it happen. This album takes places across Mainland Europe and the United Kingdom, with each song performed in some of our favorite cities on Earth. This record is live, unedited, no backing tracks, and all songs are performed and written by the people in this band. Thank you to Julien Delcroix, Florent Salfati, Moritz Hartmann, Daniel Gray, UNFD and Sumerian Records for their assistance in making this happen. All of the band's royalties from this live album are going to be donated to the Hardcore Help Foundation in perpetuity. More to come." Hardcore Help Foundation is a non-profit organization that supports various humanitarian projects around the globe — you can learn more about the organization here.
