According to singer Rob Fusco, "We should have made you wait longer. Here it is if anyone gives a shit. We hope this one hurts."
Trustkill Records will release the album this spring.
Most Precious Blood has checked in with updates on their forthcoming new album, "Do No Resuscitate," due out next year on Trustkill Records. The band has been tracking with Dean Baltulonis at Atomic (Sick Of It All, Pain It Black) and are finishing up now for a 2009 release.
Guitarist Justin Brannan said, "The new record is 1 part systems overload, 1 part Tragedy and 1 part funeral for a mexican bullfighter. We didn't listen to anything recorded after 1995 while recording this thing. We didn't set out to do anything but we wound up writing and recording a record that's a giant fuck you to just about everyone involved in underground music today. We stripped it down, covered it in bleach and set it on fire. We employed a scorched earth policy which involved destroying anything that might be useful to the enemy while advancing through or withdrawing from the area or scene. We may do some shows or tour to promote this record, we may not. We have not broken up, and we never will. We're doing what we want to do completely untethered to anyone or anything or any obligations or allegiance save for the 5 of us and maybe Geoff Silverman. We are unplugging the machine and letting it cool off. Let everyone else run around in circles for a while. We're buying run flats. That said, I think people who've supported us in the past we will enjoy this record. We stripped it all down and just left the engine."
Some song titles for "Do No Resuscitate" are:
A Danger To Myself And Others
Steady Diet Of Wolf Eyes
Most Precious Blood is currently in the studio recording their fourth album, "Do Not Resuscitate." Tracking is taking place at The Wild Arctic in Long Island City, NY with engineer Dean Baltulonis (Sick Of It All), who also recorded the band's previous two albums.
Guitarist Justin Brannan says of the new material, "While all our spineless contemporaries reach for the stars we've returned to our roots. The new songs are short, fast, hard and mean. We wrote an album to remind us of the stuff we grew up on; the music that got us into hardcore when we were teenagers. We harnessed that raw energy and power; the unbridled passion of those days at CBGB's and basements and VFW Halls across the country, sleeping on concrete floors and shoplifting for fun; back when it felt like you were really part of something different. We've checked the rock n' roll ambitions and delusional fantasies at the door and wrote a hardcore record like only we knew how."
I remember being at an Articles of Faith show back in the early 1980s in Chicago and thinking, "This is where I belong, these are my people." It's not 1982 anymore and you can't expect things to sound the same. The lines have blurred and you can nearly start a riot on some corners trying to define who and what is hardcore. Much of what is called hardcore these days has strong metal influences and sounds much different from what was called hardcore back in the day.
I'm a fan of lots of the old school stuff which came out of the punk scene but I also like a some of the newer 'metalcore' stuff. That being said, here are some of the recordings that are in my player or in the car on a regular basis: More...
Most Precious Blood will soon enter the studio to record their next full-length, titled "Do Not Resuscitate." The group has written ten songs thus far and the effort will likely consist of 12-13 new songs. The album will hit stores in 2008 via Trustkill Records.

The I Scream Records signed band recently recorded a full length that's set for a an early '07 release.
Following months of consistent touring in support of their last album, Most Precious Blood will be taking a break from the road and begin writing material for their next album. No studio time has been booked at this point, but the effort is tentatively titled "Do Not Resuscitate" and will likely see the light of day in late-2007 via Trustkill Records. According to the band, "We have an abundance of ideas for a new record and we're anxious to immortalise them on a new disc."
Deathkiller haved signed to I Scream Records. The Stamford, CT based three piece features former Most Precious Blood/The Eventide drummer Anthony Realbuto and bassist Christina Chiaramonte. They begin recording their as yet untitled full-length CD this September for an early '07 release.
"We're honered to be listed alongside such well respected names in hardcore, both classic and contemporary, as Agnostic Front, Slapshot, Blood for Blood and Ramallah, as well as many other that the label has worked with." Says Deathkiller frontman Matt McIntosh (formerly of Hatebreed and The Eventide)
Founded in Belgium in 1994, I Scream Records has become one of the leading independent labels throughout Western Europe and have recently opened offices stateside in LA.
"We're psyched to be in on the ground floor of this new chapter for I Scream." McIntosh concludes. "They show the same kind of commitment to their label as we have to our band, which is exactly what we were looking for."
Deathkiller, featuring former members of Hatebreed and Most Precious Blood, have posted their new three song demo for download and streaming on their MySpace page.
