Hesitation Wounds (Touche Amore, etc.) announce EP
Hesitation Wounds will release their debut EP this spring. The group features current and former members of Touche Amore, The Hope Conspiracy, and Trap Them, among others. The self titled 7" EP will be available in April via Secret Voice, the label formed by Touche Amore singer Jeremy Bolm a year ago. Jeremy Bolm, vocalist of Hesitation Wounds (and Touche Amore), commented, "I told Neeraj Kane (The Hope Conspiracy, Suicide File, Holy Fever), Jay Weinberg (ex-Against Me!), and Stephen 'Scuba' LaCour (Ex-Trap Them, True Cross), 'Let's write as many songs as we can on Sunday and record them on Monday.' Jay was in town and Scuba agreed to come out from Arizona for the weekend. What we came up with was three songs and an intro. We recorded them Monday afternoon with long time friend and always-available-for-my-stupid-shit, Alex Estrada. Lyrically, the songs are about witnessing the murder of a friend, the life and death of the inspirational underdog folk singer Phil Ochs, and the overall reality of life. Sonically, it's an abrasive / no strings attached outpouring of fast and heavy hardcore not far off from the bands we're already responsible for. We're proud of the outcome and we hope you enjoy." A track from the effort title "A. Smith (The Death of a Teenager)" can be heard below:
