UnityTX release new single and music video ‘Diamond Diez’

Hardcore/hip-hop band UnityTX have shared their newest single ‘Diamond Diez’ off of their upcoming album ‘Ferality.’ ‘Diamond Diez’ is a piece about lust and seeing the pure satisfaction in one’s eyes when met with the taste for pain in pleasure – having someone who will do anything for you, with you, and so on as long as they get what they want to the same caliber consistently,” shares the band on the new track. “But as time goes on that twinkle starts to dim, and it brings you to a state of betrayal captivated by disbelief. You can give them just what they want but in the end you’re always the one severed.”

“Don’t fall for lust without trust — blood will always be shed over diamonds.”

Recently UnityTX have announced their new album ‘Ferality,’ due for release on September 8th via Pure Noise Records. Produced by Andrew Wade (Wage War, A Day To Remember), ‘Ferality’ finds UnityTX confronting the last few years head-on with a blistering cocktail of car crash energy, sludgy horror-show macabre, industrial metal sheen, and sinister subliminality.

‘Ferality’ has been a challenge of what it is to prevail while tiptoeing on the edge of sanity like an animal being tormented in a cage,” says the band. “One could be driven completely unhinged when the effort is not acknowledged — this is an example. I speak on how it feels to not be welcomed into a space that was for the misunderstood – how it feels to lose yourself through creation, relations, and being complacent. I’ve given yet another part of myself to complete this piece of work. Set to deliver with my prosperity.”

“It just feels good to scream at the top of my lungs,” admits the vocalist Jay Webster. “And not even at anyone. Sometimes you just need to scream.”

‘Ferality’ follows UnityTX‘s 2019’s ‘Madboy,’ their first EP for Pure Noise Records that elevated the Dallas-based quartet (Webster, guitarist Ricky Cova, bassist Kendrick Nicholson and drummer Jonathan Flores) onto tours with the likes of SilversteinThe Amity Affliction and Poppy and shone a spotlight on the genre-bending sonic blend UnityTX have been building in the underground since 2014.

“We put out ‘Madboy’ and then COVID hit. It was like we were having to start back at square one,” Webster admits. “That anxiety, the feeling like it’s not good enough no matter how hard you’re working – it really took a toll on me. It feels like you’re an animal in a cage, dealing with repetition and anger until you hit your breaking point.”

There’s not much self-grace given, from the opening notes of ‘Rotting Away (Gore),’ bathed in seven-string doom, to the haunting ‘Sting’ and album standout ‘Lost In Dayz,’ which paints an all-too-familiar cycle of anxiety-induced anger and lost innocence that bubbles to the album’s most harrowing chorus.

But when UnityTX cut these more caustic moments, whether with the swinging verve of ‘Roc Sh!t,’ leading with full-chested machismo and swagger, or some of their most brilliantly melodic material to date ‘Ferality’ really begins to take shape, marrying the brutality of turn-of-the-century hard rock, swagger of hardcore hip-hop, and shapeshifting spirit of new-age metalcore, careening through the last 25 years of heavy music while pushing the genre forward in captivating new ways.

“I started doing this because I wanted to play music with my friends, then eventually I realized it had potential because I could write and say anything I wanted,” Webster explains. “I want our music to be hip-hop-adjacent but also into old-school nü-metal and hardcore and metalcore – all of it. People always say, ‘Oh, you sound like this band or that band.’ Bro, I’m just a songwriter.”
