Strife EP To Be First Release Through WAR Records

Los Angeles, CA (August 3, 2015) - Andrew Kline, guitar player for seminal Los Angeles hardcore band Strife, is launching a new record label called WAR Records (distribution via Revelation Records). The first release is a four song EP from Strife titled Incision, which is set to be released on September 4th. Incision will be available as a one-sided 12" (with a silkscreened vinyl version available only from the label), cassette, CD, as well as available on all digital outlets.

The record was produced by Nick Jett of Terror, and features drums by Iggor Cavalera (Ex- Sepultura / Cavalera Conspiracy), as well as guest appearances from Human Furnace (Ringworm) and Aaron Melnick (Integrity / In Cold Blood). Jett also produced Strife’s 2012 album Witness A Rebirth (6131 Records), which was their first new recording in 11 years.

"Over the years, I have become more and more disillusioned with the record labels that we have dealt with. I funded the last record myself, and produced all of the marketing content on my own. I feel like I have the understanding and know how to do a better job, and do things on my own terms. I am very excited to see my first release into fruition," said Kline.

In related news, Strife will be taking part on the Natefest: West benefit show for their friend Nate Gluck, which will be held on September 12 and 13, 2015 at Chain Reaction in Anaheim, CA.
