    Maria (Vocalist of Future Palace) – Berlin Post-Hardcore Trio, New Album ‘Run’ via Arising Empire

    On this episode of Fresh is the Word, we have Maria from the Berlin Post-Hardcore trio Future Palace who was on a recent Fresh is the Word Twitch stream. Future Palace just released their new album Run via Arising Empire. During our conversation, Maria shared the topics explored on Run, as well as the design of their album cover and music videos, along with her childhood music influences that shaped her as an artist. It was really fun to chat with Maria and Run is a great addition to where music rooted in Hardcore can go with depth and melody. It’s definitely an album you should check out.
