Florida’s STRENGTHEN WHAT REMAINS permeates the hardest, most dedicated work ethic one can associate with a band. Through an unrelenting tour schedule and a breed of socially aware metallic-hardcore, they have cultivated a fanbase stretching across multiple continents. The group is readying the release of their 2017 demo, which features three vicious tracks and will be released via Blood & Ink Records on Jan. 27. Pre-orders are on sale now. Continuing their strenuous touring, Strengthen What Remains will then head to Canada and Asia later this year.
