Stick To Your Guns have streamed their new EP Better Ash Than Dust in full ahead of its official release.

The US outfit’s first material since fifth album Disobedient in February 2015 is out on September 23 (Friday). But their label Pure Noise Records have made it available to listen to now.

The band previously issued the track Universal Language, which frontman Jesse Barnett dedicated to victims of violence across the world.

He said: “There is a problem in our country with how people in black and other communities of colour are treated by law enforcement.

“As a white kid it is impossible for me to relate to this. Sure, I can spend all day imagining what it may be like, but the bottom line is I have not been met with even an ounce of the violence or hate that these communities have become accustomed to.

“I am a privileged individual and I won’t be guilty of it anymore. I will recognise my privilege and I will use it to stand against these obvious injustices that take place everyday.”

Better Ash Than Dust can be pre-ordered via iTunes. Stick To Your Guns are currently touring across North America.
