Refuse Resist Gives Studio Report, Reveals Album Details

The Thorp Records debut from Boston hardcore upstarts REFUSE RESIST will be entitled "Socialized" and will be in stores everywhere on February 9, 2010. The record contains twelve tracks of catchy, cadence-heavy hardcore.

Thorp Records owner, Andy King, had this to say about the signing: "Refuse Resist's sound is every much their own, yet still clearly within the bounds of what we have all come to love and expect from Boston bands. The excellent production put to these 12 high-energy tunes has all of us at Thorp anxious to get Socialized out to the masses."

Shawn Refuse, the band’s vocalist, comments: "We are very excited about the new release. It's called Socialized because it's obvious that social networks are taking over our lives and becoming the drug of choice for people everywhere, myself included. While we wouldn't exist without them – we found each other on MySpace – they really do take up too much time in our lives. What ever happened to going out to shows, hanging out and meeting people for real?

Refuse Resist writes songs about what we know, love, hate and everything in between. This CD showcases our growth as a band. It's the kind of music I like, and I think others will enjoy it too."

Are they named after the Sepultura song?
