Official press release:
Originally formed in 1994, metalcore pioneers Harvest are back in action, set to re-introduce the core elements of the genre to the massive sea of fans led astray by today's pale imitations. With a new vinyl 7 inch being released physically and digitally with Good Fight Music on August 2nd, 2011 entitled, Years of Defiance. Years of Disgust., the band strives to prove what Alternative Press Magazine states: "Harvest were one of the last legitimate metalcore bands to form before the scene got watered down and predictable."
Years of Defiance. Years of Disgust. will feature two new songs, as well as the last unreleased track written in 1999 ('Torture Inhibition') and a new version of a song that was originally released on a 7 inch compilation and Transitions ('Soul Burn'). A special digital version of the 7-inch will include a new version of the song 'Conditioned' as a bonus track only available through iTunes. Years of Defiance. Years of Disgust. will be offered in two different limited color pressings, white and clear.
Determined to create intense music regardless of geographic distance, Years of Defiance. Years of Disgust. was written and recorded in three different cities; Minneapolis, Toronto, and Sao Paulo, Brazil. Mixed by Jay Maas (Getaway Recording/Defeater) and Dan Zimmerman and mastered by Alan Douches of West West Side Mastering, Years of Defiance. Years of Disgust. promises to be the record that Harvest fans have been craving for over ten years.
"We are more than inspired to write the next chapter of Harvest. We will continue to write, record and play as many shows as we can, despite being in three countries, four cities and all very much involved in our families and careers," states vocalist David Walker. "We believe in what we're doing and couldn't be more excited to be playing live again!"
