Westcoast Worldwide Records is proud to present the triumphant return of Northern Cali hardcore monsters Give Em Hell! As the world already knows, Give Em Hell is hardly your run of the mill hardcore band, and 2011 will further solidify that with the release of Volume 1. Anybody can release a full length album, but only a band like Give Em Hell can make it into a full blown campaign! April 10th brings forth the first offering of what should be quite an epic 3 EP series for 2011.
“We just really wanted to try something different” said guitarist Jon Korn. “We felt that things change so fast over the course of modern life, we just really wanted to be able to reflect that. Plus, we wanted to do something a bit more reflective, and keep things moving in an extra current manner. Not only with what goes on in our lives but also in the scene too. We felt this was a great way to put our experiences as a band and as people on tape……as they happen.”
An A-typical approach to hardcore has become somewhat of a calling card for GIVE EM HELL. Its debut release (Westcoast Worldwide), 2008′s WE ARE THE WOLVES was a banquet of melodic riffing, complex vocal arrangements, and sonic songwriting, with a dash of stoner/southern rock, and a side crushing breakdowns thrown in just to keep it extra tasty. VOLUME 1 marks a bigger, badder, smarter and slicker GIVE EM HELL.
With VOLUME 1, we really feel like we hit our stride”, remarks Vocalist Peach Daniels. “Weve changed a lot as a band since WE ARE THE WOLVES. Weve had a few changes to the band (including the addition of drummer Craig Spinelli of HOODS fame), as well as weve lived life! We really feel that VOLUME 1 is a strong statement about both us as people and as a hardcore band, and we cant wait for people to hear it!”
This is certainly no slouch statement. This is a road tested, and tried and true GIVE EM HELL! Fans of such bands and Comeback Kid, and Bane will find it impossible to put these records down. Any fan of passionate sing-a-longs, diversely melodic attack, and foot stomping breakdowns will surely find something to love about GIVE EM HELL
