Old Wounds has completed work on upcoming second full-length album, "The Suffering Spirit," due out later this year via Good Fight Music.
The New Jersey band recorded with producer Andreas Magnusson at Planet Red Studios in Richmond, Virginia. Old Wounds drummer Brandon Gallagher gives this report:
"We just completed the recording of 'The Suffering Spirit,' our second LP. I think this release accurately expresses our growth as a band both musically and emotionally. We've been on the road almost nonstop since the release of our first LP, 'From Where We Came Is Where We'll Rest,' and in between tours we worked on writing better songs that were released on the Trenchfoot split and the 'Death Projection' EP.
"Once it was time to sit down and really start focusing on this new album we knew exactly what we wanted and we went for it. Going into the studio with Andreas was a big help too. He knows his craft extremely well and I think he brought out the best in us." More...

Good Fight Music proudly announces the newest addition to its family: Old Wounds. Good Fight will release Old Wounds' new EP, "Death Projection," on September 16th.
Born in the New Jersey hardcore scene of the late '00s, Old Wounds picked up momentum with the 2013 release of its debut LP, "From Where We Came Is Where We'll Rest." Of that album, Pitchfork reported: "The trio emerges irate here, lashing ahead at a furious hardcore clip alongside screams about tears and disappointment... [Old Wounds] pairs the maudlin pages of high school diaries with a grown-ass band's precision and power."
In the months to come, Old Wounds proved itself a relentless DIY machine, setting out on back-to-back U.S. tours with peers like The Banner, Full of Hell, and Vices, and teaming up for various split releases.
With drummer Brandon Gallagher creating all the band's artwork (and also contributing design work to labels like Three One G and Bridge 9), Old Wounds' identity came into sharp focus: a self-sufficient, road-hungry crew of young bucks, cloaked in bold graphics, reviving the spirit of turn-of the-millennium metallic hardcore for the next generation.
Stand by for all the upcoming details about "Death Projection" and see a video welcoming the band to Good Fight below. More...

To mark today's release of the Old Wounds/Trenchfoot split seven-inch on Melotov Records, New Noise Magazine presents a stream of the entire record. Check it out below.
Currently in the midst of a U.S. tour that included a slot on this year's The Power of the Riff Festival in LA, road dogs Old Wounds hail from New Jersey and play a searing brand of metallic hardcore that recalls 90s scene definers like Turmoil and Disembodied. A recent review on Pitchfork referred to Old Wounds as "furious hardcore" and praised the band's "concision and power."
From upstate New York, Trenchfoot churn out an even darker shade of hardcore, evoking the epic, depressive laments of Cursed and Tragedy.
Both bands' material for the split was recorded by Kevin Bernsten at Developing Nations (Pulling Teeth, Full of Hell). More...
The fourth annual installment of the The Power Of The Riff festival in Los Angeles is now just a week away, the event including a pre-party on Friday, August 9th at The Echo and two-stage, full-day lineup Saturday, August 10th, at both The Echo and Echoplex.
Amidst the massive roster of crushing newcomer acts and classic heavyweights set to execute sets over the two-day fest, one of the main headlining performances of the weekend will be the original lineup of LA crossover act Final Conflict - founder Jeff Harp, vocalist Ron Martinez and bassist Warren Renfrow (Manic Hispanic, Cadillac Tramps) - for the first time in 24 years.
In the 1980s, Final Conflict was part of the first wave of punk bands to be labeled "crossover," with a sonic mix of Discharge meeting Black Sabbath coupled with political lyrics the appropriate soundtrack to inspire a troublemaker to slam, headbang, or throw a brick at a cop... and sometimes all three.
The band will perform 1987's "Ashes To Ashes" LP in sequence as well as early demo material. Although older, the band has no intentions of “phoning it in” - expect a brutal and energetic set.
Additional headlining acts The Obsessed, M.D.C., From Ashes Rise, Black Breath, Iceburn, and others join more than twenty additional bands including Early Graves, Mammoth Grinder, Bastard Noise, Dead in the Dirt, and tons more taking part in the melee. The lineup is:
Friday, August 9th @ The Echo // pre-party:
Black Breath, Early Graves, Obliterations, Nomads, Creative Adult
Saturday, August 10th @ The Echo & Echoplex
The Obsessed, Final Conflict, From Ashes Rise, M.D.C., Iceburn, Iron Lung, Mammoth Grinder, Bastard Noise, Condition, Dead In The Dirt, Baptists, Replica, Completed Exposition, Centuries, Wartorn, Territory, Whip Hand, Children Of God, Old Wounds, Opposition Rising
Revolver Magazine today presents the exclusive premiere of Old Wounds' new video, "An Ode To Love." Watch the clip below. The following press release was also issued about the video:
"An Ode To Love captures the New Jersey boys' signature sound, rooted in the impassioned metallic hardcore of bands like Turmoil.
"The song appears on Old Wounds' upcoming new split seven-inch with Trenchfoot, out August 13th on Melotov Records. Both bands' material for the split was recorded by Kevin Bernsten at Developing Nations (Pulling Teeth, Full of Hell).
"With over 70 shows booked so far this year, Old Wounds complete another full US run in August, including an appearance at The Power of the Riff Festival in Los Angeles (featuring The Obsessed, Hirax, Final Conflict, From Ashes Rise, Black Breath, and more)." More...
With over 70 shows booked so far in 2013, New Jersey trio Old Wounds continues its reign of terror this summer with another U.S. tour, this one focusing heavily on the western half of the country.
The centerpiece of the tour is a coveted slot on The Power of the Riff Festival in Los Angeles, alongside The Obsessed, Final Conflict, From Ashes Rise, and more. Other dates see Old Wounds play with bands such as Every Time I Die, Terror, and KEN Mode.
The tour coincides with the release of Old Wounds' new split seven-inch with upstate New York's Trenchfoot, out August 13th on Melotov Records. The following press release was also issued:
"Two of the East Coast's most ferocious young hardcore bands, Old Wounds and Trenchfoot are like-minded outfits breathing new life into the crushing metallic vibes of their older brothers' generation. While Old Wounds nod to the exhilarating charge of crushers like Buried Alive and Turmoil, Trenchfoot play an even darker game, in line with the depressive anthems of Tragedy or Cursed. Both bands' material for the Melotov split was recorded by Kevin Bernsten at Developing Nations (Pulling Teeth, Full of Hell). Melotov releases the split August 13th on vinyl and as a digital download." More...
For its next release, Southern California label Melotov Records sets it sights eastward for a split seven-inch featuring two ferocious young East Coast hardcore prospects: Old Wounds and Trenchfoot. The Old Wounds/Trenchfoot split is set for an August 13th vinyl and digital release on Melotov. The following press release was also issued:
"New Jersey trio Old Wounds, whose debut album, From Where We Came Is Where We'll Rest, dropped in February to a storm of acclaim, have been touring all year, refining their live game alongside bands like Full of Hell. Taking their cues from metallic hardcore greats like Turmoil, Buried Alive, and Indecision, Old Wounds inject new life into the crushing, exhilarating vibe once wielded by that older generation of bands. Pitchfork.com described Old Wounds' debut as 'lashing ahead at a furious hardcore clip... [it] pairs the maudlin pages of high school diaries with a grown-ass band's concision and power.' With a schedule of over 70 shows so far in 2013, the workhorses show no signs of slowing down. They are confirmed to play the heralded The Power of the Riff Festival in Los Angeles in August as part of a full US summer tour and they plan to hit Europe this fall with none other than Trenchfoot.
"Old Wounds' side of the Melotov split was recorded by Kevin Bernsten at Developing Nations (Pulling Teeth, Full of Hell) and mastered by Dan Randall at Mammoth Sound (Capitalist Casualties, Magrudergrind).
"From upstate New York's Hudson Valley, Trenchfoot are another awesome young band carrying forth the metallic hardcore power of their older brothers' era into a new realm. Their dark, heavy sound nods to the manic depression of Cursed and the epic crust of Tragedy, and they have cut their teeth in the past two years playing with every hardcore band that matters, from Agnostic Front to Converge. More...

The trio emerges irate here, lashing ahead at a furious hardcore clip alongside screams about tears and disappointment, selfishness and heartlessness... 'New Fortunes' pairs the maudlin pages of high school diaries with a grown-ass band's concision and power."
