Cradle To Grave Releases Digital EP

Cradle To Grave has released a brand new digital EP entitled "Ice" available now through Year of the Sun Records.

The four track EP features the band's first new recording in five years as well as three previously unreleased tracks from the CTG vault. All the tracks have been remastered exclusively for this release by Matt Connell (Drudgery, Fuck The Facts, Exhumed). Stream the release below, or pick up your copy at Bandcamp here.

Guitarist Sasquatch had this to say about the new release: "We're excited to be putting out some brand new CTG as well as releasing some previously unreleased songs from the vault. The fans have definitely been patient waiting for it. There has been some changes in recent months within the band and we're looking forward to unleashing the newly revamped Cradle to Grave on everyone with our good friends at Year of the Sun. Metal it up people!"

"It's great to hear these tunes remastered and officially released," states Year of the Sun's C.F. Benner. "Like a lot of prolific bands, sometimes really good tunes unfortunately don't fit a particular record and they never see the light of day. When we got talking with Cradle about doing this project, we all felt that releasing tunes like 'Within Forever' and 'End Of My Life' would be really cool for fans who have followed the band over the years. If you're new to Cradle To Grave and you dig heavy metal with an old school vibe, I think you'll dig this release as well." More...
