Defeater is a band recognized not only for their obvious musical talent, but also for their social awareness and environmental activism in a musical landscape plagued with insincerity and complacency. With one full-length release under their belt (2008’s Travels, which was called “a new artistic peak for hardcore” by Punknews and “the perfect definition of modern hardcore” by Lambgoat) and an EP on the horizon (Lost Ground, in stores November 17, 2009), Defeater is once again releasing a musically precise and genre-bending album that will redefine the term “forward-thinking music”.
Check out the new song “The Bite and Sting” streaming now on Defeater’s newly redesigned MySpace page: www.MySpace.com/Defeater.
Additionally, Defeater’s upcoming Lost Ground EP is available for pre-order now at www.B9Store.com.
Also available for pre-order today from Bridge Nine Records are the re-releases of Agnostic Front’s classic albums Victim in Pain and United Blood. Called “the ultimate document of the New York Hardcore scene” by AllMusic, Bridge Nine will release a CD version with both albums combined and additionally, will re-release United Blood on 7” and Victim in Pain on 12” LP.
These are legendary NYHC releases and some of the most sought after pieces of vinyl for record collectors – finally, these two releases are coming back to life on November 17th, 2009. One of the greatest genre-defining hardcore bands of all time, Agnostic Front, has changed the face of music throughout their 25 year long career.
Pre-order the CD and vinyl versions of Victim In Pain and United Blood at www.B9Store.com now!
