Composure and Poise

After a dozen delays, the new Korova cassette is finally finished. The master has been sent to the factory to be duplicated and the artwork is in (the artwork was drawn by Geoff of Karoshi). It is a pro-printed cassette tape limited to 200 copies (100 from us available in the US and 100 available in Europe with different cover art from Bruised Knuckles Records). Four new songs of noise and power in the (lack of) tradition inspired by late 80s and 90s hardcore punk. The thick, raw sound is augmented by layered samples and circuit bent analog instruments, and the music was recorded on a cassette four track in our warehouse practice space during times of extreme heat and intermittent rain storms. Lyrics deal with Southern Religion and underhanded "punk" business practices. The B side is ten minutes of live audio recorded at Magic City Wholesale during a show with Rational Animals and Vile Intent, which contains several old songs and an Infest cover.

The tape will available from us from our Bandcamp page, and will include a digital download of all the songs. You can opt just to purchase the songs in a digital format for however much you feel like paying. Money made from this will go towards recording.

A stream of the new audio will be available soon.
