GEL announce debut album, share new song
'Only Constant' due out March 31 on Convulse records
Official press release:
New Jersey's finest, GEL, have announced their highly anticipated debut full-length, Only Constant. Due out March 31st from Convulse Records, the album is a 16-minute blast of untouchable ferocious hardcore that proves exactly why GEL have become one of the most exciting new bands in the genre.
To mark the album's announcement, GEL have shared a pummeling new track, "Attainable." The song highlight's GEL's ability to be genuinely catchy without sacrificing an ounce of aggression, with a nearly danceable hi-hat beat that's sure to get the floor moving at the band's upcoming live shows.
Preorders are available here.
The music on Only Constant pushes the aggression factor even further, but Kaiser's lyrics are deeply self-reflective, walking a line between rage and optimism. "I've learned a lot about myself and how to address negative feelings," they say. "The album is about trying to let go of those self-destructive tendencies and embrace change." GEL fosters this mentality through their music, these are high intensity songs but they're full of the kind of vulnerability it takes to unabashedly be yourself. The riffs might compel you to jump off a stage, but you'll know someone is going to catch you.
Only Constant track-list:
1. Honed Blade
4. Out of Mind
6. Calling Card
7. The Way Out
8. Worn Down
9. Snake Skin

Marty from Zao here. Is this what the kids like these days? I just listen to The Police a lot.
Scowl is the wish.com version of this band lol
The only good modern hc band
Bobo ass music with bad production and flat vocals. There has got to be some good new bands to cover jesus
Highly anticipated by… #crickets #thesoundofpassingcarsinthedistance
Singer has a really hairy muff. I mean like 70s hairy. Was the first time I had to ask a girl if I can shave her since she obviously has no ability to landscape.
Momentum punching the air right now
wait what's the momentum beef here?
This literally sucks. Who is their drummer lieutenant dan?
Society doesn't need more Hi Vis hc merch and carhartt gear at shows... we need more people who are required to wear hi vis at their day jobs. stop the working class LARPing -Joe hardcore
Trash Talk did this better 15 years ago
what the f*ck is up chipotle
Is trying to look homeless a thing now?
honestly better than Militarie Gun. but not better than the lock
Bunch a gays.
wait what's the momentum beef here? oh you don't know? It was all over twitter Jordan apparently is a big baby and fake tough guy
my favorite part about the LA FSU scene is seeing donnie walhbergs son try his absolute best to pretend he wasn't born rich and chooses to posture in HC lol
ACAC All Cops Are Called.
YEAH WE WANNA GET OUR PICTURE TOOK UNDERNEATH THE TRAINTRACKS IN CHICAGO.
You can't give a punk band this much attention. They need to be poor losers and break up before they get famous or they go up their own ass like f*cked Up or Pissed Jeans
Love this band. First time I've seen a clear band pic. They aren't as hot as I thought but still hot.
Ceremony did this better.
let's go GEL🍧
Jordan Jenkins is stoked
New Jersey's finest Oh the irony
So is there hair under the beanie? Or it's just a xBigTallBeaniex underneath a balding head like mine? xSkulletx
xMomJeansx are so hawwttt btw
"Self destructive tendency's" aka I'm a whore. If you want dick that's cool just like be honest about it.
JEL is better
There is a ferocious gel that lives between my butthole and ballsack
For those who don't know the allusion to Jordan Jenkins he is the 5 foot 5, 5 foot 6 tops vocalist for Momentum who gets shows entirely on being down with whoever but draw di ck like their pals Section H8. He also carries a gun (or so he says) cuz he can't fight without one i.e. he's a pussy with a severe Napoleon Complex. Some racist & transphobe showed up to Gel's. Show in Columbus Ohio, broke their van mirror & ran off like the fat coward he is. Jordan & his pals accused Gel of calling the cops thus being cop callers & Gel denied it. Their van or a rented one they'd rather eat the cost of the damage than file a police report only to get insurance to reimburse them the cost or have the rental policy cover the cost. So basically Jordo & Pals and Gel don't live in the adult world & are both idiots. Jordo thinks calling the cops to get insurance/rental policy coverage thus avoid paying for damage out of pocket is bad. He is an adult child.
Society doesn't need more Hi Vis hc merch and carhartt gear at shows... we need more people who are required to wear hi vis at their day jobs. stop the working class LARPing -Joe hardcore >>> He is such an embarassment. You know what society more specifically hardcore doesn't need? His played out fest & shows which only exist because bands who were around before 2000 still exist today. He would be lost if he had to book This Is Hardcore Fest & shows in general with no reunions & nothing but bands who formed from 2010 on save Turnstile who would artificially inflate the fest draw. Push it back to 2000 on & he'd still be lost. Terror & Death Before Dishonor...and then who? He's whining about people dressing like construction workers yet I don't think he's helped a single local kid/person get into a labor union.
BAND SUCKS STRAPON
"His played out fest & shows which only exist because bands who were around before 2000 still exist today." Goes to show that all these newer bands are wack.
^^^ Hence why he never books & never will book TIH without pre-2K bands.
