We're only a few days into the new year, but long time supported trap specialist Herobust already has big plans in store. The Atlanta-based artist tweeted yesterday (Jan. 3) that he has a new EP and tour on the way! TSIS has the pleasure of premiering his first single of 2017, "Vertebreaker", and it's title reflects how hard it goes.
The production boasts a rigid structure that's powered by glass breaking samples, hard-hitting bass kicks and forceful horns. The vocal on the track is actually recorded by Herobust himself. "Vertebreaker" is a relentless trap banger that leaves us incredibly excited for what else he has planned this year. He says the following about the track and upcoming EP:
"People know the BUSTED sound by now. It's going to be hard. It's going to be weird, and it's going to have that dirty south swag. My new EP, Vertebreaker, features all these elements, but it takes the hip-hop aspect to a whole new level. I'm rapping and singing more than ever before. Some songs play like EDM bangers, while others have a straight up rap vibe. I'm so proud of the result and I can't wait to share these tunes with y'all."
In 2016, he dropped his game-changing I'm Aloud EP, along with a string of heavy releases like "No Time" with LAXX and a remix of Knife Party's "Destroy Them With Lazers". Stream the premiere of "Vertebreaker" and a list of his upcoming tour dates below. Enjoy!
