Speaking on their latest track, Slay Squad vocalists Keilo and Brahim share the following "For me BEAM speaks on the never-ending sacrifice of living in this world and the willingness to face that suffering for the betterment of yourself and the ones you love. It also speaks to those who try to avoid the suffering, reinforcing the separation between them and the ones who embrace it. " - Keilo "BEAM was personal for me. I don’t usually get that personal in everyday conversation, especially when it comes to sharing how I feel about problems or tragedy I’ve been through. I haven’t spoken a lot about what happened to my dad and how it effected me. So being able to express how I felt days after I got news he was gunned down, was a big step in artistically sharing my story." - Brahim

"BEAM" follows Slay Squad's former single "Seishin" which was released in October of 2021 and was met with much critical acclaim with No Jumper stating "Their sound is a one-of-a-kind combination of the savage beatdowns and guttural screams of metal, deathcore, and skate punk - mixed with elements of trap and hip hop to put a new face on what metal bands can look like in 2021." and saying "Slay Squad personifies the progression of aggressive art in a way that builds, blends, and diversifies rather than panders".

ABOUT SLAY SQUAD Located along historic Route 66, Rialto, California, blessed the world with socially conscious poet David Ray, Boyz n the Hood filmmaker John Singleton, and pioneering female rap group J.J. Fad, who earned a gold plaque on Eazy-E’s Ruthless Records. SLAY SQUAD are spiritual successors to the vibrant, grimy, and culturally rich San Bernardino County, situated 56 miles east of Los Angeles, the area where the Hell’s Angels began after World War II, and cops first began wearing body cameras. SLAY SQUAD combines the vibrant energy, socially conscious urgency, and confident swagger found in the sound of a Roland TR-808, dubstep, techno, and old-school rap, together with the unrelenting crunch of post-modern deathcore and throwback skate punk. The result is a fresh take on heavy music. It comes from a shared commitment toward making ambitious ideas into tangible realities. Vocalist Keilo Kei shares “I think the greatest art is a reflection of real life. Life is the best teacher. Mixing philosophies, experiences, musical genres, even strains in marijuana cultivation, we can’t separate it from what came before, but we can’t deny that it’s changed by its coming together. Call it rapcore, trap death, ghetto metal… SLAY SQUAD defies easy categorization, and that fact is by design. Their self-described “ghetto metal” and Young God worldview built a buzz from the underground upward, with no handouts. Like the beginnings of Odd Future, Wu-Tang Clan, and Dischord Records, SLAY SQUAD holds true to the values of DIY, exercising strict creative control. Gordo is a talented photographer and tech-savvy. Tim keeps his finger on the pulse of emerging styles in heavy music. Brahim is intimately, meticulously involved in the visual side of SLAY SQUAD, together with his partners in the Gousse Nest visual production team. SLAY SQUAD’s members hustle, organize, and regularly strategize, debating creative decisions with spirited discussion to realize the best collective path forward. They resist complacency, never too comfortable for too long. Vocalist and SLAY SQUAD's visual mastermind, Brahim Gousse adds “People connected with us early on because they see that we are true, we’re combining genres, and they want to see what happens. Now we have fans who truly get what we’re about. We’ve been in the lab, throwing darts at the dartboard. Now it’s time to give people the damn art.” The ferociously prolific group are continuing to work on new tracks with a number of releases planned to drop throughout the next 12 months.
