Us here at HWR are excited to finally announce our next two releases. Both from bands that have left us with heavy impressions. In the next few weeks, HWR will be releasing Slag's debut ep, and at the same time our first tape release from DC's own Pure Disgust. Slag's demo was one of our favorites of last year and this record delivers four more tracks of great hardcore from the Windy City. You can hear two tracks from the ep here. We will post the whole record to listen to and download once it is officially out. Pure disgust is a new band from DC that really took us by surprise. 5 Young kids playing mean hardcore. You can hear the demo here, but I worn you, it will be hard to get these songs out of your head.
We recently created a bandcamp page where you can listen to and download all of our previous releases. If you've been looking for those State Violence or Nukkehamer mp3s, you now have a place to find them. We also have all of our available releases on sale in an effort to make room for the Slag records and Pure Disgust tapes. So if you want to pick up those releases on the cheap, pop over to our webstore now (I believe we only have 1 Nukkehammer record left).
Any labels/distros looking to trade or pick up copies of either release wholesale shoot us an e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org. Soon after both releases are out we will be doing a big distro update (something we've been meaning to do for a while).
Here are the covers and descriptions of both releases.
Coming out of Chicago and featuring members of Broken Prayer, Libyans, Siamese twins, Outside World, Mac Blackout and Hawaiian punch, SLAG play a vicious style of hardcore punk not unlike they're midwest forefathers THE FIX and ARTICLES OF
FAITH. Four fast and tight rippers with a healthy dose of romping and stomping. This band put out one of or favorite demos of last year and this record just sounds so much meaner. Very excited about this one.
DC has seen a lot of young punks take the reins and start some awesome bands and we have been lucky enough to witness it all. Pure Disgust is at the top of that heap. Mixing some mean as shit hardcore punk with seriously catchy oi, this demo is a rager and a stomper for sure. For fans of Blitz, SSD, and of course, 86 Mentality.
