Spaced Releases Cathartic New Single “Rat Race” Ahead of Tour, Coming To Bowery Ballroom

Hardcore band Spaced has released their new single “Rat Race” ahead of their North American tour which will make a stop at the Bowery Ballroom on February 15

Spaced consists of five members blending and combining stunning vocals, remarkable instrumentals, and distinctive songwriting. The band includes Lexi Reyngoudt on vocals, Joe Morganti and Donny Arthur on guitar, John Vaughan on bass, and Dan McCormick on drums. 

The Buffalo-based band live up to their name by blending hardcore with unique sounds to create an explosive and hallucinogenic landscape. Originally formed in 2019, Spaced would burst onto the scene in 2021 with their four-song demo, followed by their 2022 compilation, Spaced Jams and a dual single in 2023, both on New Morality Zine. The band has a vitality and unique take on the genre that quickly caught the attention of long-standing home to hardcore Revelation Records, who announced the band’s signing in 2023. 

“Rat Race” features catchy themes and eccentric guitars with continuous drumming that give it a sentimental and hardcore vibe. With the groove-driven riffs moving into trippy whirls, the song features pulsating drums that plead for side-to-side mosh. The band’s vocalist Lexi Reyngoudt can be heard as she sings “us against you” with distinct enunciation that makes the song stand out.

A track about not fitting into everyday life while simultaneously not caring about it. There will always be someone who tries to dictate how you live your life and will tell you what you’re doing ‘wrong.’ The best way to go about that? Tell them you don’t care and continue to be yourself.

Lexi Reyngoudt.

With the release of a new track, the band has also announced the release of their new album, This Is All We Ever Get, set to premiere on March 22. Working with Jay Zubricky (Mindforce, Terror) at GCR Audio in Buffalo, Spaced recorded their new album over a few days in May 2023 and sent the album off for mastering with Will Killingsworth (Orchid) at Dead Air Studios. On the record, the band pulls from a wide range of influences, while still staying centered around individuality. Fans can preorder the album here.

Spaced will also join Militarie Gun, Spiritual Cramp, and Pool Kids on a North American tour which will make a stop at the Bowery Ballroom, on February 15. For tickets and more information about the band fans can visit here
