Suburban Scum Releasing New Album This Summer

New Jersey hardcore outfit Suburban Scum will be releasing their upcoming release this summer via Closed Casket Activities. The album was recently tracked by Will Putney at The Machine Shop (Body Count, Vision Of Disorder, The Acacia Strain) and takes the straightforward, hungry hardcore energy of their previous recordings to a dynamic new level of ferociousness.

Since 2010 Suburban Scum has released a solid pile of recordings, including their debut Infernal War EP with Ride The Fury Records, the 2012-released Hanging By A Thread EP on 6131 Records, a split with Incendiary via Closed Casket Activities and most recently a split 12″ with Xibalba also on Closed Casket released last year. Their clear-cut delivery is elementally hardcore to the bone; completely enraged and outspoken, with enough metal to make its presence known and not overthrow the core of the songs, their lyrics streetwise but realistic, not overly dramatic. Having made their presence known on tour with the likes of Expire, Rotting Out, Backtrack, Harm’s Way, Bitter End, Downpresser and many others, and their energetic performances at major festivals including This Is Hardcore, Sound & Fury, United Blood, Rain Fest and more have been well-documented with Youtube visual evidence and mass reports of bodily harm during performances.

The band has announced their upcoming tour and dates are posted below.

Suburban Scum Tour Dates:
Mar 03: Korova – San Antonio, TX
Mar 04: Electric Banana – El Paso, TX

Southern California hardcore stalwerts Disgrace have booked an East Coast US tour for mid-April, with dates posted below. Stream “Uncreation,” off of True Enemy, out March 24, 2015 via Closed Casket Activities,
here.

DISGRACE The True Enemy Tour:
Apr 12: Amityville Music Hall – Amityville, NY
Apr 13: Bogies – Albany, NY
Apr 14: Sala Rossa – Montreal, QC
Apr 15: SHIBGB’s – Toronto, ON
Apr 16: Ocean Garden – Buffalo, NY
Apr 17: The Voltage Lounge – Philadelphia, PA (w/ Nails, Incendiary)
Apr 18: The Palladium – Worcester, MA (New England Metal & Hardcore Fest)

Disgrace will strike out at backstabbers, cowards and religious zealots with pure fury through one of the most infectious, groove-heavy, death-influenced hardcore records in recent times with True Enemy. Featuring members of Nails, Creatures, Forced Order, and four-fifths of Twitching Tongues, Disgrace devastates with harshness of masters Merauder, Cold As Life and All Out War, yet taking on metallic attributes of early Bolt Thrower, Celtic Frost, Cannibal Corpse and Sepultura, delivering a modern, punishing metallic groove. Disgrace will now grab the scene by its throat with their debut LP, produced and recorded at The Pit in Van Nuys, California by vocalist Taylor Young (also of Nails, Twitching Tongues), and mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Integrity, Nails, Blacklisted). True Enemy‘s thirty-four minutes of executioner style metallic hardcore have been shrouded in appropriately grim cover art by legendary artist Dan Seagrave.

nemhfmiwpressrelease_3

New England Metal And Hardcore Festival has announced Motionless In White as the Sunday headliner to the seventeenth edition of the fest. The event is held at The Palladium in Worcester, MA on April 17, 18 and 19, 2015.

Vocalist Chris Cerulli states, “One of my favorite DVD’s in my collection has always been the 2003 New England Metal and Hardcore Fest DVD. Back then the metal and hardcore world was so stacked with a seemingly endless roster of legendary bands. Needless to say, it’s an incredibly huge honor to be headlining a day on this festival twelve years later after the first time I saw that DVD and after all these years how the fest has proven itself to be an unstoppable force. We hope to add in making this another successful year representing metal and hardcore in New England.”
