A titanic post-hardcore band from Winnipeg, Canada, Prinport first surfaced in 2016 when drummer Connor Olynyk met Mackail Orth and Thomas Winslow through a mutual friend. It was a chance meeting, but one that laid the foundation for things to come, and as soon as they found vocalist Dylan Copeland, they knew they had found their sound. After a few years refining their style, the band have become a central part of Canada’s rising metalcore scene.
With an undeniable passion for sounds that fit into the twin worlds of classic post-hardcore and more modern metalcore, Prinport aims to create a style that is as fierce and unique as possible, and their bold new single ‘Grape’ is just that. Pushing boundaries and building a unique experience that perfectly illustrates their hybrid sound, the new single is a bold introduction to their upcoming album, ‘Fruit Salad’.
Speaking about the new single, the band explained, “No sound is too out there or off limits to us. This new song exemplifies this by opening with a riff very reminiscent of a classic post-hardcore sound, then switching to an abrupt Latin section before the chorus which leads into a mathcore section in the second verse. The song crescendos at the end with a progressive spin on the classic post-hardcore breakdown. This is the first off our upcoming album ‘Fruit Salad’, listeners can expect a similar amount of diversity and hard left turns for the rest of the album.”
Available now on all major platforms including Spotify and Bandcamp, ‘Grape’ is arguably one of the most dominant songs of the year so far, it deserves all the attention that it can get.
An inspired release that will no doubt echo throughout the year to come, ‘Grape’ is the sound of a band on the rise, one that knows its strengths and has the skill and creativity to conquer anything that gets in their way.
