Six Feet Under has started 2012 strong with new releases from Current, Gypsy, Wrong Answer and Guilty. Apart from Wrong Answer, I haven't heard any of these bands but they all seem interesting. Continue reading for official description of each release from the label.
GYPSY - Giant's Despair 12"/CD
This was a long time in the making. Finally seeing the light of day is the debut full length from GYPSY. "Giant's Despair" is 10 tracks that have been well worth the wait. Sounding even more now like Knapsack, Jawbeaker and Dinosaur Jr than the 7" did, the LP features top notch production from Will Yip (Blacklisted, Mother Of Mercy, War Hungry). Oh and they feature members of Cold World, Mother Of Mercy, Stick Together, and the dude who books United Blood, if you're into that sort of thing. The track Sleep Well can be heard on the SFU Homepage. The LP will be available in 3 colors on a first come first serve basis. There will also be a deluxe edition out of 50 with a special color limited to 50 and containing one of the dreamcatchers used in the cover photo shoot, along with a few other extras.
CURRENT - Peace, Love 7"
Another new band on the roster, CURRENT hails from Syracuse, NY and came to our attention after we heard their impressive demo earlier this year. After several sporadic gigs in upstate NY opening for Polar Bear Club, Harvest and some others they got it together to write this 7" for SFU and despite us taking forever to get it out its finally ready for preorder. 6 songs clocking in at almost 13 minutes, sonically appealing to fans of everything from Burn to Quicksand to Bane to Modern Life Is War with ex members of Meltdown, Forfeit and Unholy and current members of Reign Supreme.
GUILTY - s/t 7"
We are pleased to bring you Sweden's finest export, GUILTY. Their demo also caught our eye earlier this year after our friends at Control Records told us to check it out. The demo is great and the new 7" is even better, featuring 4 new tracks drawing influences from the Cro Mags, Madball and a healthy does of Master Of Puppets era Metallica. Don't sleep on this 7", it's one of the best we've heard here in a while.
Being released in conjunction with in Sweden and Carry The Weight Records in the UK. SFU will have 2 colors of vinyl available, 400 pressed total, and the other labels will have 1 color each.
WRONG ANSWER - Cross A Black Cat's Path 7"
Philadelphia's premier naughty youth crew band, WRONG ANSWER are back with their new 7" and first for SFU. After 2 records on Harvcore and tours of Europe and the US, Wrong Answer is a welcome addition to the SFU Family and we are pleased to be working with Ogden again (i think?).
