Jacksonville, Florida metal band, Evergreen Terrace, has posted the first single from their upcoming full length, “Almost Home.” “Enemy Sex” is now available to stream on the band's MySpace page.
Speaking on the significance of the new album's title, James says, “We are a touring band, and it feels like we are forever saying we're ‘almost home.' Touring is something that nothing compares to, but there's a feeling of almost being home that resonates with all of us. In a way the band has come full circle back to its original home. We started this band for fun, and it lead us to success. Writing this album has brought us back to the beginning. It has been fun, crazy, frustrating, insomniatic and even with the inevitable pressure, pretty carefree.” More...
The Color of Violence has their debut album "Youthanize" hitting stores April 7th via Epitaph. Right now, you can stream the entire record over at PureVolume.com.
Spastic grind band The Color of Violence has posted a brand new track from their upcoming album "Youthanize." Head over to the band's MySpace page to listen to "Christina, Christina."
"Youthanize" will be in stores on April 7.
After being one-half of the popular screamo band From First to Last, Travis Richter (guitars/vocals) and Derek Bloom (drums) have purposefully set aside their knack for mainstream success with their new band The Color of Violence. "Youthanize," as the title implies, is a grinding, surf-y testament to the wit, irony and artistry of two musicians working without restrictions or expectations. The album is due out April 7th on Epitaph.
"The premise of the band was to be spontaneous and lighthearted while at the same time making intense music." says Richter. “I feel like the whole mood of punk music has changed. Or maybe it hasn’t and I have just romanticized the hell out of the whole thing. Either way, I look at the early 80’s punk movement, even just on the west coast, there is so much diversity, from bands like the Weirdos to Black Flag to Bad Religion to X. Take it worldwide and you get bands like GISM, Siouxsie Sioux or the creatures, Nina Hagen, etc. I don’t see that anywhere now. That boldness, that excitement, that diversity. I’m not saying that we are on the level of any of those musicians, because we aren’t, all I mean is that this record isn’t a chugga-chugga blah-blah fuck me I’m angry kind of record. We tried to improv just about everything on the spot in the studio and tried to bring more to the table than the status quo for the genre. At its heart I feel like this is a punk record in that sense.”
According to Epitaph Records, "Youthanize" takes you back to an early era of grindcore/screamo and presents it with an almost indie sophistication. Tracks like "God Gave Me Deeze Nutz," "Christina, Christina," "Me and My Enormous Spirtitual Erection," and the cover of the Pixies’ anthem "Rock Music" take unconventional guitar riffs, brutal production and unpredictable arrangements to create an unsettling and completely modern listen.
“It may not be groundbreaking, and it may not sell any copies, but we tried to be ourselves and experiment,” concludes Richter, “and were all really happy with the way it turned out, so fuck it.”
