Reserving Dirtnaps to release new EP in August
Official press release: Memphis, Tennessee-based brutal metal/hardcore outfit Reserving Dirtnaps is preparing to unload their newly completed EP, Another Disaster. The record has just been confirmed for release in August via WAR Records, who issues the cover art, a brief teaser, and more. Welcome to 2020. Welcome to a year of record unemployment, a global pandemic, rampant top-down racism, unchecked police brutality, and a general dread that Another Disaster is only moments away. What is it that the modern world revealed? Where is our shining beacon of progress? A wise man once said that the future isn't coming. Reserving Dirtnaps is happy to provide the aural segue into nothingness. Recorded at A.B. Recordings in the fall of 2019 by Alan Burcham, long considered an unofficial member of the band, Another Disaster captures the Memphis unit in top form, churning out blast after blast of extremely heavy hardcore. Captured live for maximum effect, the result is a four-song slab of professional level negativity disguised as hardcore. The EP was mastered by Brad Boatright at Audiosiege (Obituary, Nails, Integrity) and completed with artwork by Linas Garsys (American Nightmare, Ceremony, World Be Free). Another Disaster also features guest vocals from Patric Gardner of Queensway on the track "Blood On The Walls." This is music as heavy as the year it was released in. This is that Memphis shit. This is Another Disaster. The latest chapter for a city and a scene known for producing and supporting devastating hardcore. Reserving Dirtnaps' first offering for War Records, Another Disaster will see release on 7" vinyl and digital platforms on August 21st. Stand by for full audio samples, preorder, and more to post in the weeks ahead.
