Cowards Re-Issuing "Shooting Blanks & Pills," Recording New Album

Fear not what the name implies, as this Paris-based quintet Cowards is anything but weak or inhibited in its delivery. Thundering with massive, low-end amplification and a downcast, scathing vocal delivery, Cowards' noxious brew of sludge/doom is not from, or for, the weak of heart.

Formed by current and ex-members of Sickbag, Death Mercedes, Hangman's Chair, Eibon and Hellbats, Cowards will reissue its debut album with an official release in North America, and plans for a next full-length studio endeavor are now confirmed.

The debut LP "Shooting Blanks & Pills" was recorded only six months after the band was formed, and was originally released on France's Throatruiner Records. A rebirth will now occur on CD and transparent 12" LP via Canadian label Secret Handshake Recordings on September 1st, 2014. Additional pressing and release details will follow in the coming days. The track listing is as follows:

1. Hoarse From The Get Go
2. Last Card
3. Scarce
4. Vices & Hate
5. Arrogant, Unseen
6. Grand Failure

Cowards has also sanctioned studio time this October to harness the demoralizing anthems that will be a sophomore full-length, the follow-up to 2013's mangling "Hoarder" EP. The band will return to Sainte-Marthe Studio once again with Francis Caste at the engineering helm for the as-yet-unnamed works, which will be completed for early 2015 release. Catch the band live on these dates:

8/22/2014 La Bergerie - Montbrun, France w/ Mur
11/07/2014 La Instants Chavirés - Montreuil, France
11/08/2014 La Scène Michelet - Nantes, France
11/09/2014 Mondo Bizaro - Rennes, France
