Boston's Draw Blood have now joined the Teenage Disco Bloodbath Records roster. The group originally signed with Deathwish Inc. a year ago but were eventually dropped as a result of "complications inside the band." Now back with a stable line-up, the band will release a 7" titled "Rowdyism" in October. A track from the effort, which will feature four new songs, can be downloaded here.
Guitarist Sean Owen and Draw Blood have parted ways for undisclosed reasons. Here's what the band says about his departure:
"Sean has been a major part of this band from day one and we wish him the best in all future endeavors. The split was amicable and we'll do our best to battle through this tough time. We don't feel it's necessary to divulge any further information regarding this issue. We're all friends and that's what really matters."
The group will be auditioning new guitarists during the coming weeks. Interested candidates should email them here. Meanwhile, Draw Blood will be entering Godcity studios with Kurt Ballou in February to record their Deathwish Inc. debut. Artwork for the release will be handled by Pat Thompson.

Following a contractual dispute, Martyr Records has now cancelled the release of Draw Blood's debut album. In addition to disagreements over the recording contract, Draw Blood feels it is owed roughly $200 for a miscellaneous recording expense. As such, the Boston hardcore band has now decided to release their debut, entitled "The Calm Before The Storm," with Trash Art!. The release date will remain August 3rd, as had originally been planned. A limited edition, hand-numbered version of the album will also be available at the band's show (with Converge, Cave In and A Life Once Lost) in Allston, MA on July 17.
4-piece Boston hardcore/punk sensation, DRAW BLOOD, have signed to Martyr Records.

Recorded at The Outpost with renowned engineer Jim Siegel (GIVE UP THE GHOST, BLOOD FOR BLOOD, DROPKICK MURPHYS), this EP will impress both fans and newcomers alike.
