"Ulterior Motives" is the latest single from Southampton, UK thrash/hardcore band Grove Street. This marks the 3rd single from their upcoming album 'The Path To Righteousness' out September 29. This single comes after a EU tour with GWAR & Cancer Bats and just ahead of an upcoming tour with Stick To Your Guns. "Ulterior Motives" is a song that goes through the motions of someone who is stuck in a toxic and abusive relationship with someone or something -be it a partner, friend or substance, or even a vice like gambling - and cannot find a way out.

They keep getting pulled back into the situation at hand; they’re in love, addicted, and can’t see the impact of damage that’s being done to them, because they’ve got rose tinted glasses on. The second verse changes focus from the relationship/addiction itself to how people around that person turn a blind eye to what’s going on, because it’s easier for many to just play ignorant to issues than to call it out or address it, which in turn just enables the problem to manifest further.

The outro finds the person coming to the realisation that they’re better off out of the relationship/addiction, and in order to live a better life they gotta move on. Musically this is one of our favourite tracks on the record, I feel like it captures our sound as a whole perfectly; from the bouncy hip-hop inspired grooves in the intro that lead into the thrash feel. The outro is personally my proudest part of the record, I remember writing that and being so surprised with myself - like, where the fuck did that come from!!" - Sandy (Guitar)
