In related news, the Steel Nation/Crucified 7" began shipping last week.
Hardcore band Steel Nation is currently looking for a vocalist. Official requirements include: Must have the vocals of a rabid animal. Must be experience in the ways of mid 90's hardcore. Must be responsible and able to travel to practice in the Pennsylvania area. Must be able to tour.
Interested parties can contact the band on their MySpace page.
Some bands have dropped off this year's This Is Hardcore Fest and the organizers have posted a message to explain why.
"108- These guys are great. Right now they have things to take care and are taking the remainder of the spring/summer off to handle business. Expect them back at full speed this fall/winter."
"SHATTERED REALM – Another band we were really looking forward to, but due to lineup changes will not be playing the fest. They will however be playing Pressure Fest in Germany with Original Singer Chris (of Suffer The Living)."
"STEEL NATION- With a split 7" in the studio their singer flakes out and leaves them stranded. Pauly Edge of Meltdown came to the rescue but ultimately they are without a singer right now. Hopefully they will have someone by August and will be playing the PRESHOW!!"
Some of the bands that are currently confirmed for the festival's lineup include:
ALPHA & OMEGA
PAINT IT BLACK
POVERTY BAY SAINTS
Although location information was not readily available, the festival is presumably taking place later this summer in Philadelphia, PA, as in past years. More details will be posted as they are made available.
Colorado hardcore band Fight Like Hell (Double Or Nothing Records) will be disbanding in March. Here's a statement from the band:
"In the past two years, Fight Like Hell has gone above and beyond any of our expectations. What started out as a fun side project turned into an amazing thing that fulfilled every dream a kid who wanted to be in a DIY band could ever have. But unfortunately, it is time to move on. Yes we are breaking up after one last tour, but we are parting on good terms, and we will resurface from time to time. Some of us are leaving Denver, and we are all going to pursue individual endeavors, musical and otherwise, so don't worry, we're still going to be around. To everybody across the country who supported us and believed in what we said, what we did and how we lived- you guys are the reason that every show, every song we played will always ring out as amazing moments in our lives. Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you. And to all you Denver kids, what can we say? It's been a blast, start to finish. We did it all for you, and we couldn't have burned as bright as we did without your support. Keep doing what you do, making Denver the best city in this whole nation.
"We are going on one last tour to the West Coast (sorry, Texas), starting mid-February with Steel Nation. Check the Myspace page for specific dates and venues. Our last show will be March 15th, at the Marquis, with Folsom, Lose None, Crooked Ways, Killing Kings, Speak In Vowels and Bitter Truth. Come down and bring the ruckus. Once again, thank you to every one of our fans for all the love you showed us. It will never be forgotten. Who knows when you'll see us again, but never fear, FLH will never die. All love, Fight Like Hell"
Late last year, Fight Like Hell added bassist Joel to their line-up in addition to Jake (of Blood In Blood Out) on second guitar and was planning begin writing a new album for release in 2008.
