White Widows Pact Finishes Recording LP

NYC-based mob White Widows Pact now confirms that the tracking of an impending debut LP has been completed.

The album was captured at the Wild Arctic with Dean Baltulonis over the past several weeks, and is being finalized now for release on a label to be determined later this year.

In the meantime, White Widows Pact has been unloading new material from the upcoming album live. The band also recently hooked up with Converse for an installment of their Rubber Tracks Sessions, the quintet laying down an ultra-gritty, sludge-groove hardcore version of one of Nirvana's early works, "Negative Creep." Check it out below.

White Widows Pact will also head north on tour in several weeks, from May 4th through the 20th. The trip will take the band into Canada for several shows including three shows in as many days at Toronto's CMW gathering. After six shows in Canada, WWP will embark on a seven-show run with Detroit-area hardcore quintet, Hollow Earth.

White Widows Pact Releases New Video

The Summer is lining up to the busiest season yet for Brooklyn-based White Widows Pact. The band recently changed the moniker (previously known as White Widows) due to a legal snafu brought on by another outfit, and will pummel audiences over the coming months on the road and more.

First up, today the White Widows Pact drops a first official video through MetalSucks. “El Marrano” hails from the band’s White Widows debut EP, released over the Winter via Sacrament Music. Filmed and directed by Frank Huang with additional footage provided by Yessica Curiel Montoya and Chris Montgomery, the high-action black and white visual depiction of the anthem was filmed at a recent gig at Sacrament Music’s home base at Saint Vitus Bar, and includes a vocal interjection by Brendan Garrone of NYC hardcore act Incendiary.

Watch the video at this location. You can also catch the band live: More...
