Official press release:

San Francisco's Early Graves have completed their follow up to 2008's debut We: The Guillotine. Their new record, simply entitled Goner, is a ragged, pissed off amalgamation of heavy self-medication, year long blackouts and all the depression of an a thousand yard stare. The title track is available for streaming here.

Combining the best elements of Hellacopters/Turbonegro rock n' roll with Black Flag's and Bad Brains' inspired hardcore with a crushing balance of both Morbid Angel's heaviness and the raw intensity of power violence pioneers Dropdead and Masskontroll, Early Graves have set the bar for complete, unhinged self destruction.

"I don't know..." states vocalist Makh Daniels, "...I guess the record is about alcoholism... and all the bullshit that comes with it. All the 'why's?' and 'How come's?' and our stupid fucking excuses for it. I can't say that this will be the heaviest record you've ever heard or the best recording or the most musically precise but I can say that at least, it's fucking honest."

Goner was recorded at Louder Studios (Melvins, WITTR, Saviours) by Tim Green (The Fucking Champs/Nation of Ulysses) and mastered by John Golden at Golden Mastering. Artwork was completed by Nat Damm Design (Monotonix, Akimbo,The Fucking Wrath).

Goner will be released worldwide June 22nd, 2010 via Ironclad Recordings/Metal Blade Records.
