About (hed) p.e.
Huntington Beach, CA
While California-based hardcore pioneers (hed)p.e. have enjoyed successful albums, and even registered a Top 30 Modern Rock single, they are now embraced as one of the top underground acts on the independent scene. With the release of their seventh studio album, â€œNew World Orphans (NWO)â€, the band is once again ready to lead their family of new century youth into the promise land. â€œListen, we come from the land of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. And that still has its place in the world and we havenâ€™t turned our back on what we were, or said in the past. But take a look at the world around you. We did. We woke up one day and said to ourselves something isnâ€™t right. We analyzed it individually and as a band, and decided it was time to wake Americaâ€™s youth up!!â€ The wake up call is written all over the groupâ€™s new album, â€œNew World Orphans,â€ and the secrets of the â€œShadow Governmentâ€ and â€œNew World Orderâ€ are exposed once and for all. (hed)p.e. are uncovering the web of lies being force fed to the American youth. Undoubtedly their most intensely political album, "New World Orphans" shows the band blending together a potent mixture of heavy, thrash riffs mixed with punk-rock and hip-hop beats into one intoxicating package. The album does more than offer fans new music; it shows the band grabbing the torch to become the leaders of The Truth Movement. For this release (hed)pe put out a call to arms and united an all-star army to deliver their message. Joining the fight is Strange Musicâ€™s Tech N9ne who appears on the track "Work" (a song that tackles the mediaâ€™s perceptions of sex), California rip-hop hybrids Kottonmouth Kings roll up on "Higher Ground", while Oregon's king of rapid-fire rhyme The Dirtball urges listeners to prepare for battle on "Stay Ready.â€
