Post-hardcore act Iselia has released the song "First Strike" from their upcoming two song EP Lost Star. The record will be available via Cardigan Records on June 16th, but you can pre-order it now through the label's website. Clocking in at two and half minutes, "First Strike" packs in the intensity and dynamics of bands like Pianos Become The Teeth and La Dispute. The track originally premiered at AbsolutePunk.

"The track title 'First Strike' is the first new song we’ve written since our sophomore album, II:Dawn was released." says vocalist Molefi Ramos. "Lost Star is loosely inspired by the story behind the game Tales of Vesperia and 'First Strike' is like a call to action. As a town’s only source of power is stolen from them the protagonist rounds up any allies he can to fight to take it back. 'First Strike' is the song they would fight to.”
