Candy sign with Relapse Records, release new EP
Official press release: Today, Candy celebrates their signing to Relapse Records with the release of Super-Stare. The two-track 7" offers a glimpse into the critically acclaimed band's pulverizing take on the genre ahead of their highly anticipated full-length. Order the physical 7" on Relapse.com. Candy comments: "Super-Stare is agoraphobia rather than claustrophobia. The ultimate trip; the song is a journey into a testing ground in which each living thing tries every day not to be eaten. As it unravels, the listener grows oppressed by the great weight of the music around them and gradually loses confidence in orderly civilization." Super-Stare is a synthesis of where aggressive music should be. Hardcore has reached a crossroads with metal, a place where lyrical discourse and impassioned screaming is as important as the memorable riffs and pounding rhythms highlighting Candy's music.
