New York alternative hardcore band Stray From The Path have unveiled their new song recently. You can stream the song “The First Will Be Last” below. The song is from the band’s upcoming new album Internal Atomics which is due out on November 1st via UNFD.
Guitarist Tom Williams commented:
A big topic of the whole record is we want people to start acknowledging that some people don’t have everything that we have in America. We’ve been to the highest places like Japan, where cops don’t carry guns and the society is super overworked, and we’ve been to Africa, where people can’t turn on their faucets without getting sick because their water is so unclean. We’ve experienced all this stuff around the world, but we have people here who are clutching their pearls and wanting to protect their money, and they don’t understand that other people don’t have that.”
“I feel like the song is super important to open up the next generation to understand we need to help each other. If we want to start changing the world as we know it, we’ve got to start considering other people’s health and well-being, not just our own.

Long Island, New York alternative hardcore band Stray From The Path have dropped their new music video recently. You can watch the official music video for their song “Actions Not Words” below. The song is from the band’s upcoming new album Internal Atomics which is due out on November 1st via UNFD. The song was inspired by the band’s trip to Kenya last year through the NGO Actions Not Words Kenya and the non-profit Hardcore Help Foundation
The band commented:
We were able to witness firsthand what these groups do on a daily basis: dedicate their entire lives to helping those in need.
In Kenya, clean drinking water—a luxury that we take for granted in many parts of the world—is hard to find. We teamed with @ricohuntjens of Hardcore Help to raise money through merchandise sales, which was then donated towards water filters for Kenyan families. We traveled with Rico to Nairobi, where we got to meet the community and help set up the filters, and from there we headed to Nakuru to join Ross Floyd and Agnes Mburu from Actions Not Words.
Ross and Agnes brought us to the Gioto Garbage Slum, where people are living in incredibly difficult conditions. Food, clothing, and shelter are scarce, and the young children spend most of their time away from school trying to find these necessities for their families. Actions Not Words sponsors children from this area into boarding school, where they receive food, clean water, clothing, education, friendship, and a fair chance. It was heartbreaking to see the conditions these families live in, but inspiring to see the children spend time at the school where they are healthy, happy to learn, happy to be alive.
There honestly aren’t words to describe how perspective-altering this trip was, but with this song we did our best to communicate how inspired we are by the people we met and the work of organizations like Hardcore Help and Actions Not Words. They lay it all on the line to help those in need and they’re changing the world—slowly, but effectively.
That kind of change is what it’s all about, and maybe it can start with all of us. It can start with trying to understand that many people don’t have as much as we do, with considering the lives of others and not just those in our closest circles, and with doing what we can to make sure that people have what they need to have a chance at happiness. We believe that every good gesture and deed will lead to another. People like Rico, Ross, Agnes, Hardcore Help, and Actions Not Words are changing the world. We want to try to be a part of that and we hope that you do too.
